This essay examines how the image of Sweden was visualized in Swedish visual culture from 1945 and onwards, in relation to the experience of World War II. It looks on a broad range of visual expressions, ranging from movies to picture magazines, school books, stamps, postcards, coins and medallions, etc. The essay argues that Sweden's national self-image was carefully constructed through visual culture in order to confirm the notions of Swedish neutrality, humanitarianism, and moral superiority.
