Abstract [en]

The Stig Claesson Centre at Nytorget is an art museum, a foundation and a meeting place with focus on Stig Claesson’s life’s work and artistic achievements. The Stig Claesson Centre manages the public legacy of Stig Claesson at Nytorget, Södermalm. The Stig Claesson Centre offers a relevant and challenging experience to both Claesson enthusiasts, locals, tourists, architecture fans and other curious visitors. The site, adjacent to Nytorget, is a natural junction between the new, gentrified Södermalm and the old working-class Södermalm that Claesson represents. The building facing the entrance to the Stig Claesson Centre called Malongen is where Claesson had his studio and where he worked for the mostpart of his life.

Abstract [sv]

Stig Claessoncenter vid Nytorget är ett konstmuseum, en stiftelse och en mötesplats med fokus på Stig Claessons livsverk och konstnärliga landvinningar. Stig Claessoncenter eller Slashus, som jag också har valt att kalla det, hanterar det offentliga arvet från Stig Claesson vid Nytorget på Södermalm. Slashus erbjuder en relevant och utmanande upplevelse för både Claessonentusiaster, lokalbefolkning, turister, arkitekturintresserade och andra nyfikna besökare. Platsen, som gränsar till Nytorget, är en naturlig skärningspunkt mellan den nya gentrifierade Södermalm och den gamla arbetarklasssödermalm som Claesson representerar. Byggnaden som vetter mot ingången till Slashus kallas Malongen är där Claesson hade sin ateljé och där han arbetade stora delar av sitt liv.
