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:
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.
