The risk for alienation – the struggle against segregation
The problem of housing segregation has been discussed in the Stockholm City Council since the 1970s. Those who can “escape the boredom and isolation of the new concrete suburbs,” is what one politician wrote in 1973. What happened with the debate on segregation, and what actions were taken in the last decades of the 20th century?
This autumn, Stadsarkivet (Stockholm City Archives) and Stadsmuseet (The Stockholm City Museum) will be presenting a number of exciting lectures, events and guided tours in collaboration with ArkDes and in connection with the exhibition Flying Panels – How Concrete Panels Changed the World (18 October 2019 – 1 March 2020).
