Rise and fall, Dec 2011
”Rise and fall”, a new public artwork by David Svensson was inaugurated at Kristianstad Arena, Sweden, in December 2011. The artwork consists of 64 globe lamps and refers to the suns rising and setting. The lamps together has the form of an eight, the same shape you get if you observe the sun at the exact same time each day during one year, a so-called analemma. The artwork in that way forms a picture of the daylight, movement and changeability.
Photo exhibition in the Kungsträdgården
The year 2011 marks Familjebostäder’s 75 th anniversary. Familjebostäder is a public housing corporation wholly owned by the Municipality of Stockholm.

Sharing/dividing a society — art in regional planning
Stockholm’s Regional Planning Office, RTK, is working on a new plan for the region (RUFS) to be presented in 2010. Between 2007-2010 artists Anna Högberg, Janna Holmstedt, Johan Tiren och Johan Waerndt participated in the development of the plan with their artistic expertise. Ann Magnusson is their project manager and editor. The idea of engaging artists in the regional planning process came from the Regional Planning Office and Stockholm County Council’s cultural administration and is jointly financed by both bodies. The project has been monitored by researchers at the request of Konstfrämjandet [Society for bringing art to the people]. In the spring of 2010 a book about the project will be prepared and, in the autumn of 2010 there will be a seminar devoted to the project.
New book: ”Konsten i Familjebostäders nyproduktion”[Art in new housing developments by municipal housing corporation Familjebostäder]
Responsible for producing a book about municipal housing corporation Familjebostäder’s art commissions for new housing developments in the early 2000s. Ann Magnusson edited the book and wrote about the works of art and the neighbourhoods where they were sited.
Swedish Institute in Paris
Commissioned by the National Public Art Council, and in collaboration with the Swedish Institute in Paris and the municipal transport authority RATP, Ann Magnusson acted as project manager/curator for the exhibition “12 Swedes on line no. 14”. The exhibition was shown in Paris from 5 September until 3 January 2010 at the Madeleine, Pyramides, Gare de Lyon and Bercy subway stations. During the spring of 2010, art from the exhibition was on view at the Swedish Institute in Paris.
Stockholm Konst Kista – art & technology in the urban environment
Commissioned by the local authority’s art office – Stockholm Public Art Fund – Ann Magnusson has produced a plan for public art in Kista and is now in charge of realizing the project. “Art in Kista” is one of the most extensive municipal art projects ever launched in a new suburb. Rather than apportioning funding for artistic treatments successively to individual neighbourhoods, in Kista all the funding has been placed in a single pot for the entire suburb. This has meant that, for the first time, it has been possible to consider the artistic treatment of the development as a whole.
