Sofia Hultin

Sofia Hultin (b. 1982) is an artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. They graduated from Konstfack - University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 2012 and work with performance and video based on their interest in marginalized stories and queer history writing. During the last 3,5 years they have worked with the project I'm every lesbian - a city walk, told in a first person narrative, that based on interviews with lesbians living in a specific place, presents parts of that place's lesbian history. They have conducted the project in Tirana, Belgrade, Oslo and in several places around Sweden. During the fall and spring 2016-2017 Sofia is a grant holder at IASPIS in Stockholm. Their work has been shown at Tensta konsthall, Norrköpings Konstmuseum, Marabouparken konsthall, Munchmuseet, Malmö Konstmuseum, Göteborgs konstmuseum and Gävle Konstcentrum.
