HÄPNA! - Great Leaps, Tranströmmer Gallery, Kunming, China, 2009
ink drawings and one collected magazine from each year 1954 - 1966

Sweden was never the center for production of science fiction.  But between 1954 and 1966 the sci-fi magazine HÄPNA! was published in Jönköping, Sweden.  In the history books of Sweden these years are called “de svenska rekordåren” (the Swedish record years). In Chinese history the years between 1957 and 1960 are called "the Great Leap Forward". This was a project to develop the economy from an agrarian society to a modernized industry.
