Barklund & Co has a passion for craft.
We are obsessed with the handmade. We love crafts persons and the skills they obtain.

Our focus and aim is to host a selection of exhibitions a year, in combination with having panel talks and lectures. At times we will arrange smaller talks that are more targeted, and then by invitation only.

Located in Stockholm at Hägerstensvägen 145, Aspudden.

Barklund & Co loves teamwork!

Start-up workshop mid January 2017.
Regularly meetings 10 times during 2017.
Set plan for exhibitions and other public events, approximately 6-8 ones, that can be performed during 2017 and early 2018.

I have been getting curious questions lately about what I am up to nowadays. Which is very nice of course!

Without getting into the personal details, I have been off work for more or less a year due to health related issues. Now that I'm slowly starting to work again, my main focus is to implement my new business likewise exhibition space - Barklund & Co.

While the public events will linger a bit still my own workshop is up and running at the back room at this new premise of mine, located at Hägerstensvägen 145 in Aspudden, Stockholm. I am mostly around on Thursdays and Fridays, give me a ring if you are in the neighbourhood and want to pop by for a coffee and have a look at the place.

This also means that I’m infrequently at my old studio on Maria Skolgata 40. However it is kept in my belonging and both used as a studio place for a couple of other creatives, as well as my stockpile.

Cafésamtal och performance

NEWSPosted by Rut-Malin Thu, November 29, 2012 11:08:17

Torsdag 29 november, kl. 15.45 – 17.00, Röhsska Museet, Göteborg.

En hyllning till det mångbottnade svenska kulturarvet. Röhsska bjuder in till en diskussion om hur design och konsthantverk kan påverka samhället när det gäller främlingsfientlighet.

Kan design och konsthantverk bidra till att skapa ett samhälle med mer respekt och
acceptans? Eller det motsatta - kan design och konsthantverk göra samhället mer
intolerant? Hur kan det i så fall se ut och vilken roll och vilket ansvar har en designer/
konsthantverkare i det svenska samhället idag?

Moderator är Seroj Ghazarian, utvecklingsledare på Stadsledningskontoret i Göteborg.
Smyckekonstnärerna Hanna Hedman och Rut-Malin Barklund samt Klas Grinell fil.dr i idé- och lärdomshistoria, intendent för globala samtidsfrågor på Världskulturmuseet deltar i samtalet.

Med anledning av Kåldolmens dag som firas den 30 november.
Inleds och avslutas med performance och happenings runt temat ond design av studenter
från Högskolan för Scen och Musik, under ledning av professor Gunilla Gårdfeldt.
