The year is 1897 and August Strindberg is in his room on Grönegatan 8 in Lund and writing the partially autobiographical novel “Inferno”. Just over a century later, Suscito maintains its offices in the building across the street and is creating the official website for the Year of Strindberg 2012.
August Strindberg is arguably one of Sweden’s greatest writers of all time. His classics “Red Room”, “Master Olof” and “Miss Julie” have contributed more to the Swedish language than most other works. His love of words and his knack for language have not been forgotten. This year marks the 100 years anniversary since Strindberg passed away. It is observed both nationally and internationally, and last but not least, on the internet.
Suscito was commissioned by the Arts Council to design and create the official website, www.strindberg2012.se. The website contains current events during the Year of Strindberg and provides an insight into Strindberg’s life and achievements. The website is available in seven different languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Spanish and Swedish.
When we created the website, the goal was to make a website that feels vibrant, alive and is filled with events. It is the hub for everything that occurs during the year; the calendar is a central part and contains a search function.
There is much to look forward to during the Year of Strindberg 2012. We are excited to be a part of the celebration.
