Book release by cultural historian at ÅF Lighting

Dr Jan Garnert’s new book is out.

Cultural historian at ÅF Lighting, Dr. Jan Garnert, has just released his long-awaited book Ut ur mörkret*. Dr. Garnert is a historical anthropologist as well as Sweden’s leading expert on the cultural history of lighting.

Illustrated with photographs, drawings and artworks, the book portrays the massive impact of light and darkness historically and how it affects our quality of life and society at large.

Together with Ljuskultur we want to celebrate the occasion with a release party on 5 October. Dr Garnert will be participating in a meet-and-greet and a panel discussion and refreshments will be served. The publishing house, Historiska Media will be present and the book will be available for purchase at a special price during the event.
