På tisdag den 21 april medverkar jag i ett panelsamtal på FormDesignCenter i Malmö utifrån Monika Goras och Gunilla Bandolins bok Vad kostar ett träd? Det är fri entré. Samtalet förs på engelska och boken finns även på engelska (How much for a tree?).
In the summer of 2012 a unique park – the grounds of Gottorp Manor on the outskirts of Malmö – was destroyed. Threatened on one side by the residential expansion of Bunkeflo, and by the development of the ring road on the other, the manor park was a victim of “progress”. One of the trees in the park was a rare giant copper beech that local children had climbed for generations. What did the people of Malmö lose when the park was destroyed? What does a tree cost? What is it Worth?
The FUSE ÖRESUND TALK How much for a tree? elaborates on the value of a tree, referring to economic calculations, urban planning procedures, and people’s memories, wishes, and value systems. It also refers to an exhibition of the same name, currently shown at Dunkers Kulturhus Helsingborg and at Kulturhuset Stockholm.
Tisdag 21 april kl 17–20. Välkomna!
