Konstall C, in Farsta, Sweden is currently presenting Raw/Rå a series of artists films, a radio show, discussions and workshops about uranium, energy democracy and the commons.
Konsthall C, began 2014 with AFTONSKOLAN KC’s (The Night School KC's) theme Raw/Rå concerning energy and the extraction of raw material. They are now focusing on uranium. They remind us that Konsthall C is located in Farsta the location of Sweden's first nuclear power plant, owned by the company Vattenfall and is called R3, or Adam, or Ågesta thermal nuclear power plant. It is now closed down, but it was active between 1963–1974 . In the end of January Konsthall C presented two films about the ongoing disaster at the nuclear plant of Fukushima, The Safest Power Plant In The World by Maj Wecheselmann and The Radiant by The Otolith Group.
Raw/Rå will continue during February. If you missed the film by Maj Wechselmann, The Safest Power Plant In The World, you still have a chance in a video corner at Konsthall C. The PANNRUMMET (the boiler room) is activated by artist Per Hasselberg with the artwork OPTION, orbiting around the heavy water reactor R3 in Ågesta which served the entire Atomic City of Farsta with heating. Events include: A talk by Sköld Peter Matthis, who in 2002 co-founded the Network Against War, who will share his thoughts on depleted uranium. Crypto Party 4 is organizing a workshop on network security.
