Photo exhibition, Icons – an exhibition about being allowed to exist

Location: Östersund city
Category: Exhibits

The photo exhibition "Ikoner - an exhibition about to exist" presents portraits of famous icons and archetypes where the 21 models from all over Sweden have several things in common; dreams, emotions and Down syndrome. The exhibition asks questions about how we create a more open and tolerant society and how we can elevate a marginalized group. Location: Mårtens Torg.

The exhibition is the fruit of a collaboration between Fotografiska and Glada Hudik theater's Pär Johansson, photographer Emma Svensson and costume designers Linda Sandberg and Helena Andersson. The exhibition has previously been shown in Berlin and Stockholm, in Uppsala and at the Almedal Week.

The exhibition in Östersund is a collaboration between Glada Hudikteatern and Destination Östersund and is financed by Länsförsäkringar, DIÖS, Rut Odén real estate and Destination Östersund.

Facts about the Glada Hudik theater:
The Glada Hudik theater is an activity within the Hudiksvall municipality's Culture & Leisure Management which consists of a theater group with developmentally disabled and normally disabled actors. The goal of the business is for everyone to be able to do what they are good at and to create a developing and meaningful business for people with intellectual disabilities. The theater enables meetings that would not have happened in normal circumstances, which means that fears and prejudices turn into understanding and friendship.
