This is not a Departure Hall is this year’s degree show in photography from the Valand Academy.


This is not a Departure Hall

Students from BA3 and MA2 show their individual work on four floors in the unique environment that Röda Sten Konsthall constitutes.

The education, which is the only one in Sweden at university level, revolves around photography as technology, tradition and idea. In an investigative and critical spirit, photographic works are created that both question and connect with tradition as well as present new images and statements to relate to. The Valand Academy is a complete education environment, with doctoral candidates and artistic research, giving bachelor and master students the possibility to take part of postgraduate research and seminars.

This is not a Departure Hall consists of a visual part at Röda Sten Konsthall as well as in-depth text works on the website The students have also worked editorially with a catalogue that reflects their studies and degree theses.
