Emanuel Almborg is a Swedish artist, currently living and working in Stockholm, Sweden.
Whilst at Gasworks Stockholm-based artist Emanuel Almborg will research the Summerhill school in Suffolk, now nearly a century old, which operates on a principle of direct democracy. The artist will trace how the school has been represented and visualised during its history, investigating previous attempts to both glorify and discredit it.
