Sweden – the land of the tall blond beauties raised in a safe wealthy society with red houses white corners.A country, which often is seen as a role model for its equality and social work, is now showing new sides. It is a well-known fact that the suicidal rates in Sweden are unusually high, and that Sweden is one of the countries with the highest numbers of one-person households. These darker facets of the Swedish society have recently been put into the spotlight. A Pieceful Swedish Smörgåsbord is 11 artists giving their personal reflection and thoughts about our society and our view of what Sweden and Swedish woman are like today.
