Art And Artifacts 

Anna Larsson

Gunilla Bergström at the Nordic Watercolour Museum

The Nordic Watercolour Museum (Nordiska Akvarellmuséet) opened in 2000 and is located on the island of Tjörn north of Gothenburg. A modern rectangular box painted in a traditional red color and set along the water, the museum is filled with light. Its main objectives are the study of contemporary watercolor art and how watercolor has been used over time; traditionally, as a means of expression, and as a concept.

There are exhibits both featuring art from the collection and showcasing the work of an artist or theme. The spring exhibition features the art of Gunilla Bergström in an exhibit titled “I’ll Darn Well Draw the Soul!” Gunilla Bergström is the creator of children’s book character Alfons Åberg (Alfie Atkins) first published in 1972. Her illustrations are done in a collage technique combined with drawing and her picture books often have a philosophical dimension to them, not shying away from topics such as divorce or disability. On display February 11 – April 15.

Riding the Waves of Culture

Dr Fons Trompenaars is co-founder of the consultancy firm Trompenaars HampdenTurner, and is the author of the book Riding the Waves of Culture. This book, now in its third edition, has sold over 120,000 copies and has been translated into 16 languages. Two central themes in the book are the definitions of cultural norms and values, and how they translate into seven cultural dimensions (please see the companion article on page 12 – 13). Swedish Press spoke to Dr Trompenaars and his Australian business partner Sean Williams, co-founder and Commercial Director of Mundus International. Sean is currently living in Sweden and advises foreign diplomats and business executives on how to interpret Swedish culture, traditions and institutions.
