“A Train to Spain” is an international, traveling cross-media project dedicated to the memories of the Scandinavian volunteers who went to Spain eighty years ago, during the Civil War of 1936-1939. They risked their lives to fight fascism, and many of them never came back.
Starting in August 2016 untill the end of the year 2019 , our team will travel through Europe, from Finland to Spain, organising various screenings, meetings, seminars and pop-up exhibitions on the road. We hope to create discussion not only about the fates of the bygone volunteers, but also about the current state of our continent where the fascism is again raising in many new forms.
The highlights of 2016 events were :
-the exhibition in Stockholm´s Tegen2-gallery in August/ September , www.tegen2.se
-the screening of the films in Copenhagen in YNKB in September , www.ynkb.de
