During this autumn Lviv has had visits from Scandinavia. Here are only some examples.

In October The Swedish Trade Council, and the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine organized The Swedish Business Days. The purpose was to promote cooperation between Swedish and Ukrainian companies.

Also in October The Swedish Embassy also organized, in cooperation with Tekinska Museet in Stockholm, the exhibition “Kreativa Kvinnor” (“Creative Women”). During the opening the Swedish inventor Åsa Lövberg presented her invention, Guldkannan.

On December 2 The Norwegian Embassy arranged a conference at Ivan Franko National University about the Norwegian author Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. The day finished with a fantastic concert composed by the Norwegian composer Ole Bull at Lviv Philharmonic Orchestra.

Yesterday students that study Swedish at Ivan Frank National University in Lviv arranged Lucia. Below you can see a video with the evidence on their wonderful performance!


Lviv story continues

Before I moved to Lviv I didnt know that one of my big role models in writing, Sholem Aleichem, did live in Lviv for a couple of years. But he was, as I, a restless soul and moved around a lot so to cross his tracks is not very surprising. However, I did know that Ludwik Fleck did work and live in Lviv before and during World War II. I hope to able to write about his Lvivian legacy during this winter. Below you can see a photo of the Jewish Hospital, were he worked.

Autumn turns to Winter, and has been very silent for several months. To compensate this I will during the next coming days published some of my photo sessions from this autumn. I hope to be able to be some more active during winter and spring.


viewpoint-east now located in Lviv

Category: by sophie engström, ukraine is now located to Lviv in Ukraine. I will stay here for at least one year, hopefully much longer. Since it is my first visit to Lviv it will perhaps take some time to find topics on essays, articles etc. But after been able tracking those down, will of course be more active. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.


Essays, photos, ideas, topics, writers NEEDED!

So, is slowly returning form its summer coma. One of the main reasons why there has been such low activity is that will change location to Lviv in Ukraine during this autumn. A matter a fact from late September.

But to help to be keep going as strong as it was this spring, I would like to encourage you to write, find writers, come with topic ideas, contribute with photo/art slideshows, etc etc! really need this help, in getting stronger and improved. You can write in English, Swedish, Russian or Ukrainian.

I myself is working on a new topic that is focusing on the question how socialism will be able to reinforce and think new after many years of being trapped in a neo-liberal paradigm. Is it possible to believe Olivier Besancenot when he says that we can find a new way of revolution, reinvented, far from the “bloody caricatures” we had earlier in history? How does people in countries like Ukraine, Poland, Russia perceive this?

Do you have any ideas to add to mine or any other serious ideas? Fell welcome to contact me!
