Diversity Art Forum is pleased to annouce its support of the Stephen Willats exhibition THISWAY at the Index Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation which opens in March 2016 until May 2016. In the exhibition THISWAY- functions as a model for how the material world is inhabited, structured through power relations, and in which different systems of meaning and counter-relations are created. Willats' project draws vectors between different places, but also between different states of the public sphere in the contemporary city, in which change is a dominant characteristic. As in much of Willats earlier works, the models are based on concrete stories and interactions, and they offer a surface of reflection through which an audience, such as exhibition visitors and people encountering the work through its mediated forms, can relate to larger questions of social organization, engagement and self-empowerment.
