Ingmar Bergman and the welfare state
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Two discourses have more than others dominated foreign apprehension of Sweden in the post-war period: the development of the Swedish model welfare state and the films of Ingmar Bergman. This research project is aimed at studying how these two discourses relate to each other, as expressed by the films of Bergman themselves, the huge corpus of scholarship surrounding them, and the reception, domestic as well as foreign. In the films of Bergman, as I regard them, the philosophical foundations of modern Swedish society is radically challenged.
