For the final weekend of Olafur Eliasson’s solo exhibition Verklighetsmaskiner / Reality machines, Moderna Museet and Stockholm School of Economics had invited the artist along with Lin Lerpold, Acting Professor on the Mistra Chair of Sustainable Markets at the Stockholm School of Economics, to share their thoughts on how to generate the change needed for constructing environmentally, socially and economically sustainable societies. After the two presentations there was a concluding discussion moderated by Isak Nilson, Director of SSE Art Initiative.
