Bagarmossen’s former subway station is to date the first and only to have been closed down and taken out of service. Where it once was situated at surface-level there now are residential buildings.
The old station opened in 1958 and was the terminus for the green line no. 17 until 1994 when the subway was extended to Skarpnäck to the south. To accommodate the underground extension, the old Bagarmossen station had to be taken out of use, and a new one was built underground. And with the new station came new beautiful art; Gert Marcus screen painted glass-plates adorning the walls.
"The art doesn’t represent anything particularly", says art guide Marie Andersson. "But it is typical of Marcus’s oeuvre to work with color denominations in almost seamless transitions".
