It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop in the Kulturhuset auditorium when Guus Kuijer held his award lecture yesterday. The audience was absolutely captivated by his words, which will be broadcast by Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company (Utbildningsradion) at Swedish Knowledge Channel on Monday 28th at 6:00 pm. The lecture was followed by a question and answer session with the audience.

“…there are different kinds of understanding. Understanding art is a very different thing from understanding that the earth is round. And besides: art is not always suitable for everyone.”

Behrang Miri, artistic director for children and young adults at Kulturhuset, welcomed the audience, and Kerstin Brunnberg, chairman of the Swedish Arts Council, introduced Kuijer.
