Ulf Svane · The Local Business – Photos from Wong’s Takeaway to RC Dry Cleaners

At the Museum of Copenhagen’s upcoming photo exhibition, you will get close to a number of today’s “corner shops”  and service providers in Copenhagen, from “Persiennevaskeriet”  Vanløse to “Wongs Grill”  in Hvidovre. Some about to close down, while others are flourishing, innovating and finding new ways to future-proof their business. For some, the store is busy, for others, time has stopped. 

The photo exhibition shows a snapshot of 2022, where photographer Ulf Svane and historian Mathias Kobberrød Rasmussen have visited a selection of small businesses and sought to document the history behind the windows. Together with Ulf and Mathias, the Museum of Copenhagen has selected 20 places that together tell about the changes a city undergoes when technology, shopping habits, demographics and politics affect urban development. Since 2022, some of the sites have closed, while others have been converted to new businesses – but the majority are still there. But what will it take for there to be small shops and room for diversity in the Copenhagen of the future?
