Extension of temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden due to COVID-19

Today the Government decided to extend the temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden until 15 June. The decision was taken following a recommendation of the European Commission. The aim of the entry ban is, as previously, to mitigate the effects of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and reduce the outbreak of COVID-19. Due to the coronavirus and the temporary entry ban to Sweden, the Swedish Migration Agency has decided that the majority of visa applications will be rejected. This applies if you wish to visit Sweden and are a citizen of a country outside the EU.

    Roy Andersson’s new oeuvre i a reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, its splendor and banality. Inconsequential moments take on the same significance as historical events: a couple floats over a war-torn Cologne; on the way to a birthday party, a father stops to tie his daughter’s shoelaces in the pouring rain; teenage girls dance outside a cafe; a defeated army marches to a prisoner of war camp.

    Jansson sits somewhere between Tom Waits and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, but alone on stage, with his guitars, amplifiers and drums. It’s pure nordic noir and it sounds earthy and that’s rather appropriate, since he’ll perform in Meinier/ Geneva after an aperitif of local produce.
