LUMEN

Culture from the Spanish speaking world in Sweden

 

Quinqué also hopes to build bridges between Spanish-speaking countries and Sweden. We believe that culture is the answer to many of the problems that affect our present society. With Lumen we intend to create an intercultural and intergenerational dialogue between artists, the public, different countries and cultures. In this section you will find interviews, reviews, and news related to the culture of the Spanish-speaking countries and their reception in the Scandinavian country.

A quinqué /kiŋ-ké/ is a type of oil lamp. The light of a quinqué gives warmth to those who stand close to it. (Fun fact: one of the first street lights in Stockholm was, in fact, a quinqué).
