Picture: Pattern ”The whole world in one bag”
The flight from war and insecurity often begins with one single bag. What parts of a whole life can be packed and what has to be left behind? Many people have come to Sweden with just one bag.
At Livstycket in Tensta some of these new Swedes have recounted their story about their flight by drawing their one and only bag during the winter of 2006/2007. The drawings became a fabric design and it was exhibited at Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm during the spring of 2007. Memories of packing for the last time are inextricably linked to the first memories of Sweden. Leaving and arriving with only one bag, in a design from Livstycket.

The Swedish Institute at Athens and Aegeus-Society for Aegean Prehistory are very pleased to announce the Aegean lectures for spring 2016.
Welcome to the Spring 2016 series of Athens Greek Religion Seminars.
This programme investigates whether we can identify continuity of cult between different periods of Greek antiquity. What did Herakles have in common with St Michael, if anything? Why were certain ancient temples transformed into churches while others were destroyed? In certain places we seem to be able to identify long-term use for religious purposes, but does this mean continuous ritual activity or should we assume intermittent breaks with subsequent revivals of religious use?
