Are you new in Göteborg or do you wish to look at contemporary art in your home town with new eyes? Art Around the corner is an introduction to the art scene in Göteborg.

Through group excursions, visits and discussions, we look at Göteborg from an art and design point of view. We will find our way around Göteborg and its art venues, in order to discuss and analyse what we see in an international context. Our different personal experiences will develop the international perspective.
