About mdgh

mdgh is an interdisciplinary side-project, based in Stockholm Sweden, formed in 2015, with members working in the fields of art, design, architecture, and aesthetics.

The body of work of mdgh is a collaborative process exploring civil rights in relation to ownership in the built environment, with an ambition to visualize and distribute information to promote consciousness and action.

The acronym mdgh stands for Mot Den Globala Hemlösheten (Against the Global Homelessness), a fictive association originally started in order to investigate responses from shopping mall owners on demonstration rights.
