Sammanfattning

This essay examines how the image of Sweden was visualized in Swedish visual culture from 1945 and onwards, in relation to the experience of World War II. It looks on a broad range of visual expressions, ranging from movies to picture magazines, school books, stamps, postcards, coins and medallions, etc. The essay argues that Sweden's national self-image was carefully constructed through visual culture in order to confirm the notions of Swedish neutrality, humanitarianism, and moral superiority.
