On 30 January, a new exhibition will open at the Junibacken, the cultural center for children in Djurgården. This time, children and adults are invited into the world of the detective Ture Sventon – and are encouraged to sneak, scratch, mask, spy, and of course eat cream buns just like Ture! The exhibition is a collaboration with the TV channel C More, which is behind the new TV series Ture Sventon and the Secret of the Bermuda Triangle with the actor Robert Gustafsson in the main role. The series is produced by Nordisk Film TV.
“Our new exhibition ‘Ture Sventon at Junibacken – an adventure for the whole family’ is an extension of the Ture Sventon experience, whether it was in a TV series or Åke Holmberg’s book. At Junibacken, from January 30, you’ll be able to step into Ture Sventon’s universe and spy, mask, clear, and train your memory. We’re convinced that both kids and grownups will recognize the environments we have created and that they’ll awake lots of detective desire! We’re so pleased that C More asked us to collaborate on this project,” says Sanna Pedersen, Head of Operations at Junibacken.
“Ture Sventon is a Swedish national icon, and at C More, we’re proud to have given new life to this story and bring a whole new generation of television viewers into Ture’s magical world. We’re used to gathering the whole family in front of the screen, but now that we, together with Junibacken, also gather families outside of the screen, it feels very exciting,” says Anna Chrona, Business Manager at C More.
The Ture Sventon exhibition is located in ‘The Salon,’ which is Junibacken’s newest part.
“The Salon is the result of the largest investment and expansion made by Junibacken to date. Since opening in December 2018, we’ve had three different exhibitions and one musical here. It’s so exciting to see the width and capacity that the room allows. Of course, it’s extra fun that external players have paid attention to this and understand what competence we have in the house, whether it’s to produce a musical or to curate and produce a special exhibition,” says Kajsa Medin Hansen, CEO at Junibacken.
Ture Sventon at Junibacken – an adventure for the whole family opens on January 30, 2020, and is temporarily visiting Junibacken’s Salon.
