51% Swedish Exhibit Now Open

51% Swedish open at Dassel History CenterĀ 

The exhibit 51% Swedish, an artistic document about the need for adaption and longing for roots, is open at the Dassel History Center and Ergot Museum.

In 2014, two comic artists, Karolina Bang and Karin Casimir from Malmo, Sweden, traveled around the mid-west to research the Swedish American culture. The artists visited in the Dassel area and at the Dassel History Center during that time. The information from their research resulted in an exhibition with a combination of comics, photos, illustrations, sound and more.

It has been exhibited in different places in Sweden during the last years. The exhibit is at the Dassel History Center through Jan. 13.

51% Swedish will also be exhibited at the Swedish American Museum in Chicago the 4th-10th of December.
