Noah's Ark

The placement of Evert Lindfors (1927–2016) Noah's Ark , a sculpture group in terracotta 2010, in a defense from the time around the Second World War is an innovative combination that contributes to the development of making art available and to the development of the World Heritage City. The biblical and existential meanings of the artwork are linked here to military history. An interesting thematic and contextual combination that provides space for different interpretations of the work. At the same time, the artwork has become public and can be seen at no cost to a wide audience.

CHRIS CAIN

The American blues guitarist and singer Chris Cain is on a Nordic tour and visits Victoria backed by Gothenburg's prides Mr Bo and his Voodooers.

Rumiko Otsuka "Death and life of Mr. O"

Japan is a country with great extremes where strong cultural traditions are mixed with Western influences. In this cross between modern and traditional, we find the Japanese businessman. They are called "salaryman", these costumed office workers who year in and year out spend long hours at the company in front of family and private life. Crowded in thousands along the streets of Tokyo, sleeping on commuter trains, working in a booth in the office in the skyscraper, stuck in a web of strict social rules and customs with a strong connection to Japanese history, religion and philosophy.
