The Swedish Artworld is a patriachy, and much work needs to be made before we reach equality between the sexes. This sentiment comes from journalist and feminist Vanja Hermele who just published the book Konsten – Så Funkar Det (Inte). the book has been funded and comissioned by KRO, the Swedish National artist organization and containes some 30 interviews with power people of the Swedish Artworld. The book is a vrilliant run down of the flawed reasoning of many of the important figures of the art world.
In Konstnären, connected to KRO, a round table is made with yours truly as some kind of expert panelist. Some interesting point are also brought up there and this, one of the most important debates in contaporary society, will continue.
