WANÅS KONST

Wanås Konst Center for Art and Learning produces and facilitates art that challenges and transforms our view of society, outdoors in the landscape around Wanås in Skåne. In addition to the permanent collection, comprehensive temporary exhibitions are displayed both indoors and outdoors, with accompanying programmes including tours, artist talks, and workshops for a broad audience. Wanås Konst produces site-specific, international contemporary art and learning while following its main tenets of innovation and access for all.

The sculpture park and permanent collection consist of around 70 site-specific artworks in the landscape that have been created especially for Wanås Konst by artists such as Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Yoko Ono, and Ann-Sofi Sidén. The sculpture park enjoys around 75,000 visitors each year, and 9,000 children and youth participate in learning activities such as tours and workshops.

Wanås Konst is run by the independent non-profit Wanås Foundation. Founding Director Marika Wachtmeister initiated the art activities at Wanås in 1987 and served as director until 2010. Since 2011, the foundation has been led by Co-Directors Elisabeth Millqvist and Mattias Givell. The organization is financed through its own revenue and receives federal, regional, and municipal support, as well as support from private foundations and sponsors. Wanås Konst is a member of the European Land+Art Network (ELAN).

Wanås is a place in the world where art, nature, and history meet. It consists of a sculpture park and an art gallery as well as a medieval castle and an organic farm. The spring of 2017 sees the opening of Wanås Restaurant Hotel. Wanås lies in Östra Göinge municipality in Skåne, 1.5 hours from Malmö/Copenhagen. Wanås is a Long Run Destination—an international leader within sustainable tourism.
