A Good Home for Everyone

With Anna Riwkin and Björn Langhammer in the shadow of the welfare state
Stockholm 17 October 2015 – 24 January 2016 

Good Home for Everyone is a photography-based exhibition about the Swedish majority society’s attitude to the Roma. The exhibition particularly focuses on the historic turning point when the Roma people won the right to speak for themselves in society, thus securing their civil rights. Two photographers captured this transformation: Anna Riwkin in the mid-1950s, and Björn Langhammer a decade later. The pictorial archives they left behind form the core of this exhibition.
