Transnationell kultur i marginalen: ett vitalt fenomen i motvind: Rapport från ett kartläggningsprojekt
2010 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
The aim of the research project, resulting in the report “Transnationell kultur i marginalen” (Transnational Culture in the Margins), written by PhD Yael Feiler for The Multicultural Centre, with support from the Swedish Arts Council,
was, to trace, to map, to contextualize and illuminate transnational cultural expressions and arrangements in contemporary Sweden, and to identify the obstacles and difficulties which obstruct those activities from being recognized and included in the cultural establishment.
The method used was series of in-depth interviews with a large number of active practitioners working in different artistic genres in the outskirts of the Swedish cities Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg, as well as with politicians in charge of cultural issues.
The results of the inquiry indicate that:
- Transnational Culture in Sweden is a widespread and extensive phenomenon.
- Housing segregation on one hand, and ”compulsory integration” on the other, are, together with the dismantling of the welfare state, identified as central obstacles which obstruct those activities from being included in the cultural establishment.
- A continuous follow-up of transnational cultural expressions and activities is required if those should be included within a common cultural sphere.
