Opening speech by President of Ladonia
HELSINGBORG, Sweden — When the large exhibition from the collections in Helsingborg opened on the 24th of September at Dunkers Kulturhus, the president of Ladonia was invited as speaker. As the president has difficulties to move the Minister of Art & Jump Fredrik Axwik was assisting him. At the end of the speech, the president announced a donation from Ladonia to Dunkers Kulturhus, a drawing by Rosalba Carriera. Only very few drawings are known by this famous artist (1675-1757)
The Nation of Ladonia was proclaimed on 2 June, 1996, on the site where Nimis and Arx are standing, as a consequence of the blatant inability of Swedish authorities to implement their decisions and their lack of control over their territory. Since Ladonia is constantly manifesting its existence and getting broad publicity, it has grown increasingly real to many people.
