Public Luxury: Mustafa, the Diner and the City Council

Hot-dog stands and ice-cream stands are often the focus of intense public debate across Sweden. A few years ago in Umeå there was the “hot-dog war” when the local authority wanted to replace the city’s hot-dog stands with mobile wagons. In Stockholm in 2017, the authorities wanted to close two ice-cream stands in Kungsträdgården park, because they didn’t add any “aesthetic and functional values”. In both cities, campaigns and popular support have saved the stands.

This is a film about Mustafa Türkkan’s struggle to preserve his snack bar, Jojjes, in Oskarshamn in Småland, which the local authority wants to remove to create more parking spaces. Hot-dog stands and ice-cream stands are often the focus of intense public debate. Many towns in Sweden have had their hot-dog wars and ice-cream fights –often agonising battles fought on social media. Citizens have come together to support a small business person whose livelihood is about to be sacrificed by politicians who want to beautify the street space –but who don’t understand how important the snack bar is to the social life of the city.

Producer Karin Ekberg for ArkDes. (2018)
