Hallberg’s “European Trash”, a familiar Europe


During his visit to Rome, at the start of October, the Swedish writer Ulf Peter Hallberg has offered several doubts to those who are sure about the current perception of an European culture affected - according to the general feeling - by disillusion and disconnection to the European dream among artists and in the population.

During his visit to Rome, at the start of October, the Swedish writer Ulf Peter Hallberg has offered several doubts to those who are sure about the current perception of an European culture affected – according to the general feeling – by disillusion and disconnection to the European dream among artists and in the population.

 

Hallberg has proposed – both in his writing and in an interesting conversation that he had with the participants at a dinner at the residence of the Swedish Ambassador in Rome, Ruth Jacoby – a different image of Europe, filtered through his own experience, that of a member of a family passionate about European culture (interpreted in the broadest sense, from Baudelaire to Greta Garbo). Hallberg is a Swedish writer  that expresses  a  European perspective, he was born in Malmö (but he lives in Berlin since 1983) and he emerged as an author in theatre and cinema, with a narrative between fiction and essay.

That drawn by Hallberg in “Europeiskt Skräp” is a tribute to European culture, but that traces its roots in personal experience, because in the course of the narrative the writer has found in his childhood home objects, paintings, newspaper clippings: these things are not worth much money, but communicate love for freedom given by knowledge, an alternative to a world that values as fundamental principles money and appearance, then Hallberg started working about the memory of his father, just passed away.
