«Pappa’n i de mange land – Daddy World Wide» – children and youth from all over the world share what they think a dad is and should be.
In the book «Pappa’n i de mange land – Daddy World Wide» The International Museum of Children’s Art researches what the term father entails, by asking children and youth what they associate with fatherhood, and what they think is important about being a dad. What is a dad like, and what does he do? What do they find important about being a dad? And which geographical differences and historical variations do we find when we investigate the term father as a concept?
The book contains both old and new material from the museum’s permanent collection, made by children and youth aged 3-18 years and from over 20 different countries. You will also find a a rich variety of essays and articles that shed light on fatherhood from different viewpoints, written by writer and publishing director Geir Gulliksen, literary scholar Hanne Kiil at The Norwegian Institute for Children’s Books, gender researcher and literary critic Jørgen Lorentzen, and lecturer and picture researcher Ulla Lind at Konstfack in Stockholm. The book also contains interviews with Danish children from Sejs school in Silkeborg and older image material from Saksala Art Radius and Villa Arttu Art Centre for Children and Young People in Finland and the Children Imagery Archives in Eskilstuna, Sweden.
