Platsens själ (Genius Loci)
Artipelag 2012






Genius Loci is Artipelag’s opening exhibition. In the ancient world, it was believed that a guardian spirit embraced all living creatures and even places: genius loci. By featuring historically important events and 16 contemporary artists, we illustrate aspects of genius loci and its relevance in our time.
