Everyday, we calendar our minutes in absurdum, yet we feel constantly behind schedule.
Everyday, we process a massive overload of information, yet we never feel updated enough.
Everyday, we connect to the whole world and beyond, yet what we most desire is to be fully right here, right now.
Everyday, we are reminded that this constant rush is not what we dream of, that something needs to change.

Founded by artists in 1998, Signal is a center for contemporary art in Malmö, Sweden. Early on it organically formed into a group of artists and curators led by a desire to explore the meaning of collaboration and curation, to support artists, to propose new modes of production, to stimulate the ongoing public discourse around art.

Signal is today the sum of the people that have been involved: Christian Andersson, Maria Bustnes, Alexander Gutke, Sara Jordenö, Magnus Thierfelder, Evalena Tholin, Elena Tzotzi, Johan Svensson, Emma Reichert, Karlotta Blöndal, Luca Frei, Runo Lagomarsino, Johan Tirén, Carl Lindh, Fredrik Strid, Joel Odebrant, Matthew Rana.

Our mode is slow and rugged, infused with humour. Our vision is to push ideas forward in dialogue with tenderness and sensitivity. Our home is our space, with one foot firmly rooted in Malmö and the other outside, maintaining a physical presence that is welcoming and intimate.

Stepping into our third decade, we haven’t cracked the time riddle, yet this is what we will be working on this spring and continue to develop: a tempo and rhythm that allows for a deeper search, determined to walk with time on our side and to cultivate the pleasure of staying with the now in all the aspects of artistic process.

Thank you for staying in tune with us!
