Aktivering Samtal!
Mats Eriksson Dunér

At the end of the 1960’s the artist group Aktion Samtal started to arrange urban political actions through childrens perspectives. The revolution must spring from the sand box according to a Danish social model. The group decided to go out and intervene on schoolyards and set up theater shows for children. In the film, three women that were part of the group look back on the movement, on its achievements and purpose to strengthen children’s creative expression and cooperation and by doing so creating ground for the next generation’s managing of our society.

Born in 1967 in Malmö, Sweden. Lives and works in Stockholm.

Mats Eriksson Dunér is an artist and researcher with a Fil Lic from Malmö Art Academy/Lund University in 2015. His work has moved from photographic surveys to cinematic practice and installation-based work.

From the ideas of activity centers in the sixties, the group Action Conversation (about civic dialogues) and to the alternative Trailer park “The Office” in contemporary Sweden. In his investigation, he is also interested in the told experiences, and the relationship between the collective and the private. Eriksson Dunér received his master’s degree at Malmö Art Academy in 1998, with an additional year at the Glasgow School of Art.
