Global Success Stories from Sweden
Småländische Cultural Days at the Museum Europäischer Kulturen

31.07.2015 to 29.08.2015
Museum Europäischer Kulturen

What do Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of ABBA, the famous children’s book author Astrid Lindgren, and Ingvar Kamprad, founder of IKEA, have in common? They all come from Småland, a region in southern Sweden, rich in endless forests and lakes. Småland is known as the heart of the Swedish furniture industry and has given the world several renowned furniture designers, such as Bruno Mathsson. Equally renowned is the region’s glass industry, with production here dating back to the mid-18th century.

Now in its 12th year, the European Cultural Days festival is devoted this year to the historical province of Småland. Its cultural and natural aspects are presented in a small exhibition containing photographs by Christina Glanz. Accompanying the display is a series of lectures, multimedia presentations, readings, food tastings, and music events, all aimed at adding depth to the visual impressions the exhibition has to offer. There is also a range of activities on offer for children and families – unmissable for fans of Astrid Lindgren.

The Småländic Cultural Days are being held in association with the Swedish embassy in Berlin, partner museums in the cities of Växjö and Vimmerby, VisitSweden, eßkultur, and Jugend im Museum.
