CLIENT: HELSINGBORG MUNICIPALITY
PROJECT: PERMANENT EXHIBITION
LOCATION: HELSINGBORG, SWEDEN
Kvorning Design & Communication won the Swedish Dunkers Kulturhus’s local-history exhibition På Gränsen in international competition in 2011. På Gränsen is a permanent exhibition about what makes a person a person and Helsingborg Helsingborg, with lots of exciting local features, stories and events.
The person is central to the exhibition, and so too the border perspective – geographically, politically, morally, humanly. The exhibition encourages visitors to transcend borders, both externally and internally within themselves, and it attempts to explain what history really is – and who makes it.
Is it the visitor him/herself? Is it the exhibition venue? Or something entirely different? Dunkers Kulturhus houses more than 3,000 sq.m of exhibition space, opening some 10 new high-grade international exhibitions every year.
