In 1964, 150,000 people were on waiting in Stockholm, today it is 500 000. During the 1900s, several different medications tried to create good accommodation for everyone in Sweden. Some questions asked are: What did the politicians in 1931 when Sweden was Europe’s worst housing standards? How did the debate before – and what was the argument? Who decided then and who decides today?
– After this exhibition should feel that it is going to change, you can think again, it is possible to do things, says Dan Hallemar, project manager for the exhibition Bo.Nu. Then: Housing and answers for 99 years .
