Since 1990 Peter Johansson has been working thematically on his own childhood and experience in Dalarna (Dalecarlia). This county is situated at the ”heart” of Sweden and has ever since the end of the 19th century acted as a romantic national metaphor for Swedish identity. This metaphor has also been heavily exploited by the tourist industry and still is.
Peter Johansson´s work is made with humour, folklorist materials as well as up to date technical presentations, all made with the purpose to bring the church and the Kingdom of Sweden down, shut up and counteract racist acts and aggressions. Although, not always with success!
