“For many years, I passed Slussen every day on my way to the studio,” says Anders Thessing. “It was a little secret place where people sat their imprint for many decades. Slussen had been in peace. Such environments are being built away today, everything is so renovated and fixed that it eventually becomes impersonal.”
