About the exhibition Spatialities of Uppsala’s upper secondary schools
The network Studies on Education, Migration and Segregation (EMS) aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines to theoretically and methodologically deepen and develop new approaches to our joint research interests. A theme within the network is about exploring, via fiction and photography, the possibility of finding new angles to the complex reality we study. As part of this work, a collaboration with the photographer Finn Calander (https://www.sawantphotography.com/) was initiated in the spring of 2022 to explore the meeting between science and photography. The collaboration culminated in the exhibition, Spatialities of Uppsala’s upper secondary schools, which portrays Uppsala's upper secondary schools, their architecture and adjacent environments together with students in different contexts. The photographs of the physical environment and students combined with public statistics and sociological analyses, create a picture of different spaces with three dimensions – one physical, one social, and one cultural.
