Den Svenska Friheten

What is freedom for you? Is it independence, safety, civil courage, the family, or something completely different?

Karin Wegsjö and Janna Holmstedt (Nu-institutet) work with the art project “Den Svenska Friheten” (the Swedish Freedom), investigating the concept and reality of freedom in Swedish contemporary society.

During the summer of 2010, an exhibition at Mariannelund train station is part of the three year long project's beginning and investigation phase.
