On June 17, the Embassy of Sweden will host a virtual artist talk with Swedish photographer Helene Schmitz about her exhibition “Dreamland,” currently on display in House of Sweden. The conversation will focus on Schmitz’s artistic practice and how art can shape and influence society. “Dreamland” is a photographic account of the extraction and depletion of natural resources, and consists of two photography series that examine human-induced changes in bedrock and forest in Sweden. Throughout the month of June, images from “Dreamland” are also projected on the glass facades of House of Sweden as part of the Focus on the Story International Photo Festival.
