"Spaces of the Public is the name of this beautiful and scintillating anthology with poems, images and essays. ... Spaces of the Public is first and foremost an artistic and aesthetic object. It's a book that invites investigation: You want to explore details, its scent, read the colophon to check out its typography"

Luna Svarrer, Atlas

What happens when you ask 28 Nordic artists about public space? Through images, short stories, essays, poems and statements, thoughts and experiences about public spaces are presented in this book.


All texts are original contributions, and the book spans widely in artistic traditions as well as over generations.
