CANCELLED: Nobel Week Light: Bertil Ohlin Between the Lines

Given the situation with the ongoing covid-19 pandemic we have decided to cancel the lecture and the mingle. We are sorry for this. This year the Stockholm School of Economics will be lit up as part of the Nobel Week Light. The light installation Between the lines is created by Fanny Englund and Bruna Porsia from The Light Bureau as an hommage to Bertil Ohlin, SSE professor and one of the Nobel laureates in 1977. Welcome to a lecture about Bertil Ohlin and a drink celebrating the light art work on December 9.

Between the lines by Fanny Englund and Bruna Porsia - a part of the Nobel Light Week 2021.

CANCELLED. Welcome to a 30 min lecture about Bertil Ohlin with Mats Lundahl, professor emeritus at SSE, December 9, 17.30 in room Torsten at Sveavägen 65. Fanny Englund and Bruna Porsia from the Light Bureau, the creators of the light art work Between the lines will also giva a short presentation. 

After the lecture a mingle in the Heckscher-Ohlin room at SSE will follow, where the SSE president Lars Strannegård will give a toast for science, light and art. 

Bertil Ohlin was professor at SSE from 1930 to 1965, and he was awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel in 1977. He was also the leader of the Swedish liberal party (Folkpartiet) between 1944 and 1967, and served as Minister of Trade in the Swedish government of national unity between 1944 and 1945. His name lives on in one of the standard models of international free trade; the Heckscher-Ohlin theorem - a theorem that is the inspiration for Jens Fänge´s artwork The Clout in the Heckscher-Ohlin room at SSE.

The light festival Nobel Week Lights takes place in Stockholm between December 4 and December 12 2021 with installations that are inspired by Nobel Prize-winning initiatives and individuals. This year's artists and lighting designers have explored some of the science's greatest discoveries, and with the help of unique ideas and technical skill, works have been created that inspire, attract reflection and provide new perspectives on the city and the urban environment. Fun fact: In 2014, Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their invention of blue LED light!
