In an old industrial area of Gothenburg, Sweden, Röda Sten Konsthall exhibits contemporary art across four floors.
The building is an old boiler house that has, through a grassroots effort, been preserved and become what it is today:
“A place where you can relax, enjoy art and hang out on Gothenburg’s nicest outdoor patio, right next to the water,”
explains Mia Christersdotter Norman, director at Röda Sten Konsthall.
Röda Sten Konsthall is renowned as a popular choice on tourists’ itineraries when visiting Gothenburg.
“I think our guests like the whole experience of visiting us.
The area is striking, our exhibitions host both Swedish and international artists,
and there is no pressure of buying something,” says Christersdotter Norman.

“The local choir, Not Quite which has been mentioned in White Guide.
“The meat-free Sunday brunch is ever so popular,” the director smiles.
This Spring, Röda Sten Konsthall will introduce the concept Slow Art Days.
“Normally a person spends 15 to 20 seconds on each piece of art,” explains Christersdotter Norman.
“We want to encourage our visitors to explore what happens when one spends more time at an exhibition.
The viewer may understand additional layers of the art and it is almost like meditating – basically,
an opportunity to reflect and take care of yourself.”
14 April marks International Slow Art Day, and Röda Sten Konsthall will arrange several events on the theme throughout March and April.
