Tensta Konsthall has over the years raised some attention not only through its exhibitions but also due to its dramatic leadership changes. I am invited by the art centre to arrange an activity on Wednesday, November the 19th. I decided to focus fully on the newly appointed head, William Easton. The intro to Beverly Hills Cop is an environment description of 1980s L.A. My intro depicts the current environment surrounding the art centre. Staff and visitors are all extras on the set. Instead of Eddie Murphy, William Easton appears on screen right at the moment when the film moves on and the plot unfolds. The 2,30 minute long film becomes a time document of where Tensta Konsthall is at, in fall of 2008. A leadership change involves other changes and the art centre is in apparent transformation. The expectations are widespread as the boss is cooking up plans. The Heat Is On.
