A talk on forward/visionary and backward/reactionary movements in Malmö. In the essay From Pilgrim to Tourist – or a Short History of Identity Zygmunt Bauman compares the pilgrim’s search for inner peace and enlightenment with the modern subject’s belief in a shapable future. Bauman’s thinking, together with reflections on the film Båten (The Boat) from 1962 by Jan Troell, that will be screened during the evening, are points of reference in a talk about Malmö, nostalgia, borders, picture windows and walking across bridges.

The talk will be held in Swedish.
