Julia K Lindstedt - artist who likes second hand shopping, open air parties and to watch the stars from the observatory in Slottsskogen city park. This is Julia's Gothenburg.

A city of creative chaos

There’s no better way to experience Gothenburg than by bike! Every day I take the bicycle to my studio at Kulturföreningen Taket, close to Järntorget, which houses artists, designers, photographers and actors.

I spend most of my time painting, drawing and working on different projects with my fellow artists. We arrange exhibitions for young, new artist under the name Galleri DIY and we also have a pop-up second hand event called 2ND HVN. The interest for second hand and reuse is getting bigger and bigger in Gothenburg and by combining it with art and DJ:s we hope to get even more people to realise that sustainability doesn’t have to be boring.

Julia's favourite spots

When I’m not busy with my art or other projects I like to walk around the city looking for walls and corners where artists have left their marks. I also like to go second hand shopping in shops like Emmaus, Kommersen, Iris and Pop Boutique.

People long to experience new things and to express themselves through art, music and clothing

Gothenburg is a vibrant city where people long to experience new things and to express themselves through art, music and clothing. Since it’s not the largest city in the world there’s a lot of people who, instead of just waiting for stuff to happen, do things themselves. In my video, which also features the artist Jyo Östlund and skatboarder Johanna Juzelius, you can see how I experience this creative chaos.

We asked a group of people, all active in different forms of culture, to show us their city. They came back with totally different stories.
