Joanna Lombard - Ljusbacken
Publisher Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing
Much about Ljusbacken is the stuff of legends. Some of them tell that the hill in southern Hälsingland, where the large white building is perched, used to be an execution site and the location of a speakeasy and a brothel. Later it became a retirement home, until Stockholm hippies in the early 1970 s acquired the property and a plot of land around it. The commune came to crystallise the hippie and prog movements, along with their at times extreme blends of political militancy and lifestyle experiments. Ljusbacken is artist Joanna Lombard’s journey of facing the memories and extracted stories that were generated during her childhood in the commune.
