About

Kåre Holgerson works as an artist and educator and has since completing his art training in the early part of the 1980´s been based in the Kalmar region. He has been the driving force behind the work to establish Kulturmagasinet in Bergkvara as a vital node on the regional art scene. In his own artistic practice he has mainly been working with printmaking, performances and installations that in a number of ways have formed a unified body of work over a long period of time. Works with titles such as Vid gräns (At border) or Exil (Exile) has been transformed and been given new meanings in varying contexts.
