AiR BKN is on the Swedish East Coast 2 h north of Stockholm by bus.
LOCATION AiR BKN RESPONSE
In the northern archipelago of Stockholm one finds the island Björkö, where artists and the local community initiated BKN studio spaces in 2020. Originally set out as a project to convert the former school into studios, it soon came to include a residence program, artist presentations, art education, screenings and exhibitions. It is a space dedicated to the experimentation, research, and dissemination of artistic practices in which Swedish and international artists come together.
You reach BKN by public transportation (buss) from Stockholm via Norrtälje. The two former school buildings are right at the bus stop so its really easy. The space is endorsed by the locals and run by the non profit organization Björkö Konstnod. BKN is in two buildings and total area of 590 sqm. The setting is in a rural environment.
