The project The Economy of Survival consists of three separate site-specific art projects which takes as their point of departure the industrially imploded cities of Chernobyl (Ukraine) and Detroit (USA), and the consequences related to the industrial expansion in Kiruna (Sweden), inhabited by the Sami people, the indigenous people of the Northern Hemisphere. Through artistic practice, the aim of this research project has been to examine contemporary modes of adaptation and survival practices in places that undergo deep processes of change.
