Kiruna Forever

"How do you move a city?" Kiruna Forever, an exhibition physically located at The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design (ArkDes) and virtually available to viewers worldwide, explores this question. Kiruna is a city in Sweden undergoing "one of the biggest urban transformation projects in modern history ... [as it] is being relocated by three kilometres due to the expansion of the mine around which Kiruna was built." Many of its residents, especially the Indigenous residents, must relocate, and historic landmarks are being destroyed or moved. Led by curator Carlos Minguez Carrasco, Kiruna Forever investigates these major changes and their impacts. Viewers will see work from architects, urban planners, and artists, learn more about the history of Kiruna and its residents, and be challenged to think about limits on natural resources and the loss of residents' identity. The video also features other guests, and readers should note that some guests converse in Swedish. The full list of presenter, architect, and artist credits is available below the video. Scrolling to the bottom of the page, readers will find additional multimedia resources from ArtDes (in a mixture of English and Swedish).
