Sex and Sweden

With the rise of second-wave feminism, new ideas about women’s sexuality started to challenge the more male-centric notion of “the Swedish Sin”. How does visual artists in Sweden exploring sex and sexuality in their work approach this heritage? And what are the positives and negatives of working in such an environment?

Sex and Sweden is a panel discussion hosted by the Members club Alma with Baron and Baroness Magazines, inviting a range of panel guests who, one way or another, have explored sex and Sweden through the visual arts, including artists Arvida Byström and Anastasios Logothetis flm maker Ninja Thyberg and Matthew Holroyd founder of Baron and Baroness Magazines.

Joe Macleod on Ends

As consumers and providers we overlook the importance of healthy, coherent endings. There was once a rich culture of reflection and responsibility, but over recent centuries this has been lost. Producing a mixture of long term societal oversight, and short term denial. 

Now, in a world awash with start-ups and new tech, I want to tell you why its critical we start considering endings. 

Joe Macleod, author of the Ends, shares with us a history of our changing relationship with endings. He makes a compelling case that demonstrates how, over centuries, our changing relationship with death, spread of the Protestant religion, and a tethering of our identities to our consumption has distanced our relationship with endings.
