Sixten Sanne, SWE, (*1987), is a contemporary artist, and artistic director, based in Gothenburg.
Currently working around the the role of art, and artistic methods, in urban development. Through examining what functions a public square needs, and can hold, in relation to the city and local property owners future vision of the area. 
As well as an intended governmental strategy in the changing of the immediate surrounding into a proclaimed "permissive oasis".

He is the managing and artistic director for '
Kiosken' an artist run Kiosk, platform, and public experiment, in a central industrial area of Gothenburg, and is the co-founder and caretaker for the rural residency Rävemåla Residency Programme

The work is often focused on the lack of the incidental sociality in the flow of the city, and what role chance has in the reoccurring mundanity of everyday life. The work intendeds to interrupt this flow, allowing for chance to play a role, and subvert the self-proclaimed capitalisation of public space.
Sixten aims to create a new relation between the spaces and the spectators. He wants the people to reimagine the these spaces, by inserting a tangible presence within the urban landscape.

The documentation of the work is usually what is left after a variety of time-based experiments. The work focuses on the initiative and the act - and in the end the interest lies with the information and documentation of the people passing - rather than the spaces reimagined.
