Unknown makes unloved, an interesting proverb isn’t it? Just by definition one can associate unknown with unfamiliarity, something that is yet to be revealed, or maybe something we share a complex dialect with. Through my limited experience, I have also felt how we often don’t fear the unknown, but rather what we project onto the unknown. Being Indian, my “limited experience” obviously would like to peel one such complexity that is part of the Indian fabric, but that over time has mutated into different roles and identities within the society.
At the heart of a city called Kiruna stands an ordinary red brick building, the function of which is conveyed in red capital letters above it's main entrance; Folkets Hus, Swedish for 'community house'. As such, the building houses a variety of public functions; café, cinema, theatre, tourist information centre, souvenir shop, micro-museum. It's a place where the residents of Kiruna can gather, and where visiting tourists can use the bathroom.
