ARTIST TALK - Carina Bergfeldt, Where The Children Sleep
May 23 at House of Sweden
The photo exhibition Where the Children Sleep, now on display in House of Sweden, is an enigmatic and yet vivid reflection of the experiences of young humans in an inhumane world. Today over 65 million people are fleeing from conflicts in their home countries.
Join us for a conversation with Carina Bergfeldt – a well-known award winning Swedish journalist, who has been traveling together with photographer Magnus Wennman and talked with the kids fleeing from wars and searching for peace and safety.
Carina Bergfeldt has provided the original text for the photo exhibition Where the Children Sleep and has won awards for her journalism, for her story telling and her writing style as she captured the agony of oppressed and injured refugees and other targeted groups.
Currently she is the Washington based U.S. Correspondent for Swedish Television, before her position here she has spent ten years covering conflicts and other important stories from all around the world for Sweden’s largest daily newspaper, Aftonbladet.
Come and listen as Carina talks about her journey that started in a refugee camp on the Syrian border and ended two years later in Toronto, Canada, via refugee children in the Mediterranean Sea and child brides in Lebanon.
The event will end with a Q&A session, where you have the chance to ask your questions following her presentation.
Doors open at 6:30 pm, event starts at 7:00 pm.
We will invite you to a Swedish Fika (coffee and sandwich) upon arrival.
