Globögat was born as brother to Globteatern. While Globteatern's actors absorbed world experience in their bodies and soul, Globögat collected associated images, pictures and sounds on photographic film, sound tape, video tape and recently using digital means.
Globögat followed the main travels of Globteatern, as well as making its own travels; to Ghana where a photo series was made on a small Ghanean girl and to India where rural family life was documented. Both on assignment of the SIDA, the Swedish International Development Authority. Globögat also made a film in Colombia, assigned by the Dutch Directorate General for International Cooperation.
Globögat has build up impressive sound, picture and film archives over its 25 years of existence - available for making slide-sound shows, illustrations for articles and short documentaries.
