National museums and galleries emerged in the context of the consolidation of the nation-state in Europe from the 18th century onwards. At the beginning of the 21st century, the intellectual underpinnings of many of these institutions are being questioned, while at the same time, new forms of interaction with the publics are formed. The purpose is to develop a new role for national museums and libraries that allows them, in an innovative way, to adequately reflect past trends and processes that are not constrained by national borders, engage the interest of new social groups and audiences, while simultaneously acting as agents of social cohesion and stability in Europe.

Save the building!

County Archive Building (“Landsarkivet”) extension, 1971, by Bernt Nyberg: old building from 1904 by architect Carl Möller.

The archive building by Nyberg is part of a tradition of brick building that was developed and passed on by the internationally known Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz, creator of the churches in Björkhagen and Klippan. In Skåne (the southernmost part of Sweden) the heritage of Lewerentz has been taken over by Bernt Nyberg, Klas Anshelm and Bengt Edman.

A project, for transorming the archive into a students’ housing, is going to destroy its unbroken brick wall masonery.
