Ropa was a non-profit artist-run project space for contemporary art, located at Telefonplan in Stockholm. Ropa created a new venue for contemporary art with a explicit feminist profile. One aim was to highlight important issues related to structural redistribution of space, money and time in the art field.
”In a society where art space is strained and at times perhaps too market oriented Ropa only feauture events without utility or commercial requirements, by promoting people in art that might otherwise be marginalized.”
Ropa was run by artists Mikaela Krestesen, Daniela Auerbach and Lovisa Henoch between 2008-2012.
