Shootings in Copenhagen (Strzały w Kopenhadze/Skotten i Köpenhamn: ett reportage om Lars Vilks, extremism och yttrandefrihetens gränser)
Niklas Orrenius

translated from the Swedish by Katarzyna Tubylewicz

published by Wydawnictwo Poznańskie

The limits of art and free speech?
Is the Swiss graphic designer Lars Vilks – with his provocative caricatures of the prophet Mahomet as dog – a new Scandinavian “enemy of the people?” Is he a true artist or an impostor looking for cheap effect? One thing is certain – he is a magnet attracting extremists: the Islamist terrorist want his head, Swiss and Danish racists hold him as their hero. Niklas Orrenius follows Vilks who – after an attempt at his life in Copenhagen – lives in a “borrowed time”, under the non-stop protection of the Swedish police. The reportage combines lively narration with a nuanced reflection about the ambivalent limits of free speech and art.
