A good home for everyone is a photography-based exhibition about the Swedish majority society’s attitude to the Roma. The core of the exhibition consists of the photographic archives of Anna Riwkin and Björn Langhammer left to Moderna Museet and the National Library of Sweden respectively. Riwkin portrayed Swedish Roma with her camera in 1954-55, and Langhammer’s photos of Roma life were taken a decade later.
