Thoughts and comments

"Jan Dahlqvist is one of the nordic masters of incorrectness. For him the margin is the center and "Proud People" sketches out a communal portrait of the subversion of power by people who, like the greatest masters of jiujitsu, make their vulnerability their greatest strength. In this world, power becomes a carnival, a parody -not an organ of oppression but of love. Could there be a more radical politics than this?"

David Elliott, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (formerly president at Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and at Louisiana Art Museum in Copenhagen)

 

"Proud People is a fascinating and unique documentary. In a classical way Jan Dahlqvist has portrayed a group of people, all different but alike in one aspect: They are proud of who they are. "Proud People", full of warmth, respect and curiosity, allows people to show sides of themselves you seldom get to see in Sweden."

Walter Hirsch, photographer
