Exhibition on Bus Drivers


Yesterday a photo exhibition ”Bus from Bagdad” opened at Kongens Nytorv, just between the Metro and Strøget – probably the best spot in Copenhagen, where more than 10.000 people walk by every day.

Inside a bus the mayor of integration in Copenhagen, Anna Mee Allerslev, gave a great speech on the relationship between meaningful work and successful integration.

The exhibition is part of the Stagis project Bus Driver with Character. The photographer, Henrik Saxgren, is giving voices to 30 bus drivers with foreign background, telling their stories and thereby pulling them out of anonymity. The exhibition will be on the road the next five months and can be seen in several major cities in Zealand. See the tour plan and read more about the background of the exhibition here.
