2 twenties – an introduction

Welcome to viewing!

With a hundred years of perspective, we can look back at the 1920s; the "new age" after the First World War and a worldwide pandemic (the Spanish flu). This time was in many ways the beginning of modern society which shaped, and continues to influence, our time. Societies change, values ​​are nuanced and new ideas are born, which also has consequences for individuals. The 1920s was a time of great upheaval, liberation and faith in the future, but also a hardening zeitgeist. The 2020s also means major changes and challenges, to some extent reminiscent of the 1920s - but there are also major differences. Values ​​and attitudes do not arise in a vacuum, but are influenced by the political, economic, social and cultural conditions and ideas of previous time periods.

Join museum educator Mattias Nordahn Larsson on an introduction to the exhibition 2 twenties which connects the 1920s to our own contemporary times with various challenges and issues.
