Fotografiska For Life/Civilian Act

A roof over your head – the face of the housing crisis

19 June — 16 September, 2018

In a modern society, you'd be forgiven for thinking that a roof over your head is a human right, but in fact this isn't always the case in Sweden today.


On behalf of Fotografiska, journalistic production company Civilian Act has produced the Fotografiska For Life exhibition A roof over your head – the face of the housing crisis. We get to meet people affected by this harmful development and to witness the negative repercussions for both individuals and the whole of society. The exhibition will be displayed on Fotografiska's façade, as well as in the ruins of Saint Catherine's church on the island of Gotland during Almedalen Week, a major annual political event in Sweden.

"The eldest son, who is seven years old, told me that it's hard to concentrate when doing his homework as there are so many people at home. The entire family are forced to eat dinner with their plates on their laps as they have no kitchen table." – photographer Stefan Bladh, one of the founders of Civilian Act.
