Johanna Gustafsson Fürst. Born 1973, based in Stockholm is an artist that uses self-organized platforms, performances, texts, sculptures and site-specific installations to process how everyday life encounters political and social systems and how these merges into objects, surfaces and spaces that affects human relationships.
Johanna holds an MFA from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. In 2003, she was one of the initiators of ak28, an exhibition space and a self-organized collective of artist, architects and curators that was opened until 2008. Between 2009-2013, a part of her practice was with Husby, a neighborhood in Stockholm. The work created transdisciplinary spaces for interaction and followed the transformation of a neighbourhood for several years.
