how do you wanna change the world?


For those of you that live in Gothenburg, there's an exhibition at the Museum of World Culture (Världskulturmuseet) that seems to be very interesting: TAKE ACTION! - 83 ways to change the world. I saw a presentation of it on tv earlier & I think it would be fun to visit. According to the website it's
"about individuals who occupy land, refuse to follow orders blindly, create armies of clowns, crochet their own Gucci bags or start up their own banks. It is about people who ask questions and fight for a better world."
The idea behind the exhibition is to show & discuss creativity in political struggle - different strategies to change the world with focus on the constructive & creative. There will be a section of craftivism too - on tv they showed the gigantic knitted "posters" that are being put up outside the museum & you can by your own DIY-kit to take home & start your own crafting. Good planning from the people at the museum, since I'm going to visit a friend in Gothenburg pretty soon & this will definitely be on my to do-list. I'm so excited!

Åh, det såg jag också! Den vore säkert väl värd ett besök. De verkar ha en hel del schysta utställningar där överlag, både nu och tidigare.

ja, jag såg deras traffickingutställning förra året, den var ganska bra men sjukt deprimerande. jag tror att den här kan vara hur bra som helst (eller hoppas i alla fall).

Jag ska nog också försöka ta mig dit. Har planerat ett besök i Borås framöver och det blir nog en sväng till Göteborg när jag ändå är i trakten. Traffickingutställningen orkar jag nog inte med, men Fair fashion vore kul att se också.
