Bänken #7

Bänken (the Bench) is a poster magazine that believes all people have a story to tell.


A reporter and a photographer sit down on a bench with a mission to make an article about the first person that takes a seat next to them. One page tells the story of the central character. On the other page, artists and writers get to make their free interpretations of said person’s life.

The seventh issue of Bänken features Mildred, 76. Off a bench in Hässelby gård she tells about how her husband suddenly died and about refusing to sit along the dance floor “like a cow”, waiting to be chosen.
