KINFOLK # 49
In Issue Forty-Nine, we set out to explore Scandinavia—but not as an exoticized lifestyle paragon. Instead, we feature a cast of cultural leaders who draw their creative strength from the darker side of the region. We meet pop sensation Tove Lo, who writes searingly honest songs about life’s ugly truths. We speak with famed Swedish painter Karin Mamma Andersson about why she’s drawn to darkness in art. And we catch provocative filmmaker Ruben O¨stlund (Triangle of Sadness) after he’s presided over the jury at the Cannes Film Festival.
