Conny’s Halal Smørrebrød

Welfare housing at a turning point.

The public housing projects in the danish suburbs were cornerstones of the famous welfare state. But since the 1970’ies, these concrete utopias have met more problems than any of their founders could have imagined. Today the areas are undergoing a dramatic demolition process with the aim of getting rid of ghetto problems in the country. Jakob Fälling set out to document the demolition and communicate the place from the inhabitants’ perspective. 

Conny Berling is a former sandwich maiden. She has lived in one of these housing projects since 1973. (… and ”smørrebrød” is a traditional danish sandwich dish).
