Bodenskolan (The Boden School) is the name of the group of 14 artists in Boden, who in the 50s and 60s arranged courses, painting trips and exhibitions together; learned from and inspired each other.

A number of these artists became well established and eventually could live on their artistry, while others had a civilian working life and devoted their spare time to their art. But together they all are an important part of Norrbotten’s art history and they – by striving and struggling in a culture climate more barren – helped to form the basis of today’s art life in Norrbotten.

During the summer of 2018 we exhibit the Boden School from a new perspective.
