In 1931, at a time when architectural modernism, as project and utopia, was undergoing a decisive crisis internationally, six of the most important representatives of the modern movement in Sweden published the manifesto Acceptera. It marked the beginning of Swedish modernism's unique path. In this essay, Helena Mattsson and Sven-Olov Wallenstein present an analysis of this manifesto and its rhetorical strategies, the way in which it forges a new relation to the past, and attempts to produce the sense of a specific Swedish modernity.
