Her conventional painting became the source of financial income. But her 'life's work' remained a quite separate practice.

Hilma af Klint belonged to a group called "The Five", a circle of women who shared her belief in the importance of trying to make contact with what she called the "High Masters"—often by way of séances.

Her paintings were abstract and geometric. These paintings were not appreciated by her audience. She therefore packed away approx.1200 paintings which she hid away to be opened 20 years after her death.

In her will, Hilma af Klint left all her abstract paintings to her nephew, Erik af Klint. When the boxes were opened at the end of the 1960s, very few persons had knowledge of what would be revealed.

Her art work has since been exhibited both in Europe and in the US.

How does a country’s reputation get made? Events that make front-page news play a big role, as do economic and environmental conditions and so much else. Consciously or unconsciously, people rely on these reputations when deciding where to set up a business, where to live and where to travel.

Houston Film Critics Society, HFCS, nominated the Swedish film Border (Swedish: Gräns) as one of five movies to the Best Foreign Language Film of 2018. Honorary Consul General Astrid Marklund attended the Houston Film Critics award show representing the Swedish film Border that was nominated.

The movie is about customs officer Tina who is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It’s almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can’t identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself.
