The job is a unique position where Cecilia’s work will promote increased freedom over wage labour for the Swedish general population.

Her contradictory and ambivalent employment is at the same time a performative artwork and a paid position. Cecilia will both be part of and form the artwork together with Frihetsförmedlingen in a lot of activities directed towards both the general public and different institutions.

Frihetsförmedlingen’s Election Tour 2018

The 2018 super-election year is characterized by important parliamentary elections in September, but we seldom reflect on all the other choices we constantly make.

Many of these everyday life choices we make without thinking, despite their sometimes devastating consequences. And we almost never discuss all the big choices we urgently need to make at the community level – and not talking about this is also a choice.

From July 29 to August 5, the Swedish Public Freedom Service will go on an election tour of our own, to reach and meet vacationing people in Southern Sweden. – What do you choose to do when you don’t have to work, and why?

Follow our journey to keep track of where to meet us and take the opportunity to discuss the really important choices this super-election summer 2018! Look out for us in holiday spots like Ullared and Öland.
