Just back from a workshop at the museum Kulturen in Lund. The theme was new takes on cultural heritage, memories and representation. Three different projects, all dealing with the ephemeral aspects of culture and environment, were presented.
Archaeologist Anders Högberg presented the problematic conctructions of memory connected to the demolished premises of two stigmatized Swedish industries (Lomma eternit and BT kemi). Helen Stalin Åkesson showed how she had been working with some thought provoking methods to unveil different sides of the urban, and some industrial sites. I made a short presentation of the project Förbisett (≈ Overlooked) run by me and Niklas Ingmarsson, together with photographer Martin Magntorn.
