BKN is an artist run not for profit organisation with a focus on Fair Studios, a concept with the artist in focus, towards a responsible social/economic/environmental imprint.
BKN provides an opportunity to within the stay, focus on the artistic practice and experience life in the Northern Archipelago of Stockholm - where the sea meets the forest, fields, and lakes - a peaceful rural milieu. BKN is a transformative, dynamic space for art engaging with aspects of life and nature, towards an experience beyond violences such as algorithms, egoism, deforestation, narrow-mindedness, repression.
BKN fosters a peer based environment "thinking together, learning together" this takes part during informal sessions and public outreach. It is a resource and public forum to explore and experiment.
The work carried out during the program will be reflected at research catalogue.net.
