At the Folk High School

Munka entre

A folk high school is a form of popular adult education, and originated with the social movements of 19th and 20th century Sweden. As part of the Munka Folk High School celebrating it’s 100 year jubilee in 2013, we’ve arranged a screening on the lawn in front of the school. The screening starts with a Slideshow of old glassplates depicting the school when it was newly built in 1913.

The artvideos in The Future program have all been produced by art students at Munka Folk High School during a workshop organised by the Sunshine Socialist Cinema during the spring of 2013. The students – Siri Berg, Hanna Carlsen, Björn Delgård, Karin Ellerstrand Bengtsson, Malin Ida Eriksson, Alexander Findeisen, Ryan Karlsson, Nina Myrendal, Thomas Olsson, Louise Petersson, My Sjöberg and Nils Östbrant – have worked at imagining and visualizing thoughts of the future and future ways of seeing.
