  3. 3. The black veil The reality of Rosengård is deeply connected to the movement of people from all parts of the world. While in the macro scale there seems to be a lot of movement associated with Rosengård, it is at the same time a place of stagnation, where intracity (urban) movement seems to be absent, disconnected from Malmö by a phenomenon analogous to what astronauts call the “black veil”: an instance when communication between 2 points is impossible, rendering the reality of “the other side” a complete mystery. The city of Malmö exists in brotherly proximity to Copenhagen, and the two places are connected by rail and road. This transit artery touches Rosengård’s western edge, but these lines of flight do exactly that: flee. Additionally, Inre Ringvägen, one of Malmö’s major highways connecting the city with Stockholm in the north bounds Rosengård to the East, and both roads define the existence of this community found in between in everything, yet invisible to the outside. Some arrive by air, others by land................................................ Where are they?_
