Botkyrka konsthall is constantly advancing the work connected to 1% commissions and public artworks, working with artists within the programme of Residence Botkyrka, connecting it to research as well as grassroots initiatives.
Some of the artworks that are located within schools or elderly homes, may be difficult to access by everyone. The map is continuously being updated.
The One Percent Rule is financing a large part of the public art in the municipality. The recommendation is that 1% of the total building cost in connection with new and redevelopments, are allocated to public art commissions. Botkyrka municipality has applied the One Percent Rule since the seventies.
In recent years, a boom of constructions and redevelopments has resulted in an impressive collection of public artworks throughout Botkyrka. Today, the rule also include the renewal of public streets and parks, as opposed to only buildings.
