Contemporary Sami Art and Design

Jan-Erik Lundström
Julie Cirelli & Esther Whang (Eds.)
From the Sami Centre for Contemporary Art comes this sumptuously illustrated first-ever survey of contemporary artists and designers from the region of Sápmi, an area spanning northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and northwestern Russia. Traditionally known as Laplanders, the Sami are an indigenous Finno-Ugric people and the only indigenous people of Scandinavia recognized and protected under the international conventions of indigenous peoples—and hence the northernmost indigenous people of Europe. Sami traditions, both historically and today, are inspirational sources for these contemporary artists and designers. This book, curated by the Center’s director, Jan-Erik Lundström, presents hundreds of works produced by more than 40 leading artists, both established and emerging in more than 250 images. This is a superb reference book for anyone with an interest in art by indigenous peoples along with expressions of contemporary art and design from this fascinating region.

Kommentar fra styret:
Flere av SDS medlemmer er også med i denne boken som ble utgitt i begynnelsen av februar. BONO og BUS har vært involvert i saken da forlaget ikke har betalt kunstnere for sine bidrag. Flere av kunstnerne som opprinnelig var med er ikke med fordi de ikke kunne godta vilkårene forlaget kom med. Vi oppforder alle våre medlemmer til å melde seg inn i BONO
