Ambassador visited the Brigadier Museum in Karlstad

Ambassador Jiří Šitler visited the Brigade Museum in Karlstad on February 20, 2020 where a variation of the Pink Tank of Czech artist David Černý is exhibited, after a successful presentation in Örebro and Stockholm.

The infantry fighting vehicle, which was used to create the work of D. Černý, was made in Czechoslovakia, it served in rapid deployment units of the German Democratic Republic and after refurbishment in the 2nd Infantry Brigade of the Swedish Army near Karlstad. On this occasion, the Ambassador met with Museum Director Jennie Jarnryd, Museum Board Chairman Björn Tomtlund, Karlstad Culture Councilor Johanna Larsson and Mats Ahrén from the Culture Department, President of SAAB Bofors Test Center Stefan Krol (now owner of the infantry fighting vehicle), Tomas Werngren (CEO) and with Göran Tivenius from Kommuninvest (sponsor of the work). The original plan was that the infantry fighting vehicle will be exhibited in the museum by the spring of this year, but the museum and the city of Karlstad are interested in keeping the Pink Tank as a part of the permanent exhibition.
