The work explores the relationship between Persbo Studio and its history as an active Missionary Church, articulating the difficult and multi-faceted relationship between the congregations in Sweden who funded the missionaries’ activities overseas, and the people living within the missionary fields. A reverb from a meeting between a missionary and local men today resound within the linden tree arbor at Persbo Studio, and remind us of how individuals living far from Persbo were affected by the activities that once took place there.
