Short description

This project studies the citizens' perceptions of the first Swedish queer monument, created by the artist Conny Carlsson Lundgrens, that was installed in Gothenburg in 2023 and its connection to the broader European context. In order to do so, qualitative social research (interviews, observations and visual material collection) are being conducted in 20 European cities where the memorial are located.
