Come along for a visual flight of fancy through the Nordic countries as envisioned in travel posters. March 11 sees the opening of a playful design exhibition, charting the way the Nordic countries made a place for themselves on the European tourist map; with slow chugging along magnificent fjords, wholesome outdoor life in exotic mountain scenery, and night trains to the rip-roaring amusements of Copenhagen. The historical posters mirror the new phenomenon of the early 20th century – leisure time – and the dream of travelling.
The exhibition is a joint production by Come to Finland, Come to Sweden, and the Affischjägarna association.
The exhibition is open from March 11th to November 2nd 2022 at Nordiska museet.
