What role have public monuments in enforcing racist structures and how do ideologies and displays of power shape our contemporary society? Hanni Kamaly is a Norwegian artist and initiator of the project Markings, a series of discursive walks for Moderna Museet Malmö which looked at how white supremacy and colonisation are inscribed within the city’s environment. Salad Hilowle is a recent graduate from the Royal Institute of Art whose exhibition Vanus Labor at the Royal Art Academy in Stockholm investigated how Afro-Swedes have been depicted throughout the Swedish history of art. Together with Patrick Amsellem, newly appointed head of the Swedish Public Art Agency they discuss these questions in a talk moderated by Sofia Curman, freelance writer and producer of the praised podcast Konstnärsskapet.
