To learn more about “Nationell Psykos” students left school

IMG_5076Students in Social Science 1 visited the Mångkulturellt Centrum (MKC) in Fittja, Sweden to mångkultbroaden their understanding of national identity.

As a module in their course, students have been studying:

Group’s and individual’s identity, relationships and social living conditions on the basis that people are grouped based on categories that create both community and alienation.IMG_5073

To explore and better understand this important discussion, students visited the “National Psychosis” exhibition at MKC.  During this visit, students went on a tour of the exhibition, asked questions and explored on their own.

The exhibition is about Sweden’s different realities and the identity crisis in our country.

The exhibition addresses questions about: identity, democracy and every citizen’s role in the society. National Psychosis is made up of concrete facts, raises the different images of Sweden, our common cultural heritage and, even, the question:  What does a Swede look like?

Sometimes you have to leave the classroom to learn and understand more . . .
