About the speaker
Tommy Olsson (b. 1963) is a Swedish/Norwegian visual artist and writer. Since 2014 he has been a regular art critic for Klassekampen. With his deeply self-exposing and transgressive texts, he contributed greatly to redefining art criticism in Norway in the 2000s. Many of his texts have been published in Billedkunst, Morgenbladet and on kunstkritikk.no.
