Early industrialisation
The story of the Dead Falls is more than a story about a disaster. The Dead Falls represents the meting of humans and nature in the 1700’s, a time of optimism about industrial development. It was the time when Scandinavia first believed in and declared man’s ability to tame nature with new technologies and science to maximise prosperity and progress. The Dead Falls is unique in its depiction of Sweden at that time with the heralding of the major breakthrough of industrialism. Döda Fallet teaches us not only about the ideology of that era, but also serves as a reminder about the consequences of industrialisation today.
