Award Lecture at Kulturhuset

“You need the gaze of other people, such as Bergman, to learn how to look and how to shape your own conclusions. That is what art does; it teaches you how to form an image of the world and the position that you should occupy in that world in order to mean something to others.”
Guus Kuijer
