Swedish titel: RYSSEN KOMMER!

Right up to 1997, foreigners were not allowed to visit Boden. Today, Boden is going in for tourism and the two tourist groups growing the most come from Norway and Russia. In Boden there is also the Migration Board’s region office, where a large amount of asylum-seekers from trouble spots all over the world are received annually. In the exhibition, the artists articulate important questions, of vital importance for our region:
– Can art visualize problems and make it visible to us from where alienation and fear stem
– Have we been influenced of our history of a divided Europe?
– Will the north of Sweden once again become a military strategic area, should new conflicts arise?
– Can the contemporary art be an implement used to create peace, friendship and understanding?
