Have you visited the exhibition yet?

Dear readers in Uppsala! (Or anyone planning to visit Uppsala soon) The German Contemporary exhibition will be open for two more weeks. The opening hours are 12-16 Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and 12-17 on Saturday and Sunday. Konstbrukets exhibition Dialog Kleinsassen in Kulturkafét have different opening hours and it will be open for one more month until 9/8.

After viewing the artworks I recommend having a coffe in the small park ”Valdemar Langlets park”.  This week the exhibition is manned by me, Christina Hillheim, and this years swedish scholarship holder Adina Almén.

Midsummer week with the German Contemporary exhibition


The Swedish Midsummer celebration was the reason for closing the exhibition for two days. Uppsala is completely empty during the Midsummer weekend!

It was fortunate that I had Mia Hochreins Little Folk to keep me company in the Midsummer empty town

There were visitors also, who were happy to see art from artists that were new to them. I got to show the exhibition to my colleagues from Studiefrämjandet i Uppsala who came to visit. (Photo by Gunnel Sörbom)

Thank you!

I think that I am not the only one feeling tired after this intensive weekend. I would like to say a big Thank you to all of our guests, both the german and the swedish ones for making the entire weekend so incredible! One of the most memorable moments for me was the entertainment at the Saturday dinner at Katedralkafét. Studiefrämjandets Catarina Lundgren sang beautiful opera in several languages with talented Antonietta Cannizzaro on the piano. The photograph below shows Catarina when she suddenly emerged in an outfit that made the entire room cheer. The photograph is taken from Kunststation Kleinsassens facebook album with many good pictures taken by Alexander Zyzik from the vernissage and the dinner . /Christina
