The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning

The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning

by Margareta Magnusson

CD-Audio Publication Date: 19/10/2017

Doestadning, or the art of death cleaning, is a Swedish phenomenon by which the elderly and their families set their affairs in order. Whether it's sorting the family heirlooms from the junk, downsizing to a smaller place, or setting up a system to help you stop misplacing your keys, death cleaning gives us the chance to make the later years of our lives as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Margareta Magnusson says she is 'somewhere between 80 and 100 years old'.

She was born in Gothenburg, Sweden, on New Year's Eve, and graduated from Beckman's College of Design in Stockholm. After working as a fashion and advertisement designer, she embarked on a career as a painter.

Her first solo exhibition was held in Gothenburg in 1979. Later, she exhibited in Stockolm, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and widely around Sweden.

She has moved house 17 times within Sweden and abroad, which is why she says, 'I should know what I am talking about when it comes to deciding what to keep and what to throw away'.
