    Curatorial Intentions and Visitor Experience: Three case studies of publicly funded Konsthallar and how curatorial intentions affect the creation of social space2024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Publicly funded art institutions in Sweden are tasked with the mission of making contemporary art available and accessible to the citizens. This thesis investigates three cases of publicly funded art institutions in Sweden, namely Göteborgs Konsthall, Malmö Konsthall and Liljevalchs Konsthall. The study examines the exhibitions presented by the institutions during the fall of 2023 and how they are curated to be inclusive or exclusive towards visitor groups. By using a model of curatorial values in conjunction with a constructed model of the exhibition as social space, inspired by Henri Lefebvre’s concept “social space”, this research will reveal different strategies used by the institutions for mediating curatorial intentions through the exhibitions. 

     

    Empirically the thesis is based on observations of three exhibitions and their visitors and interviews with exhibition hosts. The material is used to examine how the institutions work towards different audiences and how curatorial decisions influence visitor behaviour within the selected institutions. 

     

    The results show that the three cases differ in curatorial decisions and values. Further, the social space model used indicates that institutions differ in how they award agency to visitors. The analysis shows that visitors, by acting in unpredictable ways, contribute to the social space of exhibitions in ways not intended by the curator.  

     

    In conclusion, this study shows that the mission of the municipality-driven art institution is multifaceted and holds challenges when attempting to engage a broad audience while displaying exhibitions of high artistic integrity. The curatorial choices reflect in the audience and these choices therefore determine who will partake in the exhibition. The curator therefore plays a crucial role in how the exhibitions work with inclusivity.

    Allusions and Reflections: Greek and Roman Mythology in Renaissance Europe2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In June 2012, scholars from a number of disciplines and countries gathered in Stockholm to discuss the representation of ancient mythology in Renaissance Europe. This symposium was an opportunity for the participants to cross disciplinary borders and to problematize a well-researched field. The aim was to move beyond a view of mythology as mere propaganda in order to promote an understanding of ancient tales and fables as contemporary means to explain and comprehend the Early Modern world.With the Renaissance, pagan religion ceased to pose a threat to Christianity and its mythologies found a way to coexist with Christian doctrine. Old Greek and Roman tales came to play a crucial role in Renaissance culture, partly because the ancient sources, both literary and artistic, many of them recently uncovered, provided rich material for the writers and artists of the period. Mythology provided a network of allusions and references for contemporary poetry and art, reinforcing the possibilities of allegorical interpretation. Furthermore, it offered moral guidance since deities could easily be materialized into personifications of vices and virtues. All artistic expressions, visual and textual, whether they belonged to a secular or a religious tradition, made use of mythology. This volume exemplifies how Renaissance writers’ and artists’ acquaintance with mythological accounts from Homer to Apuleius was of utmost importance for their creative work, as it was for their readers and those contemporary patrons of art who saw themselves as the living embodiment of some remote ancient deity. By posing new questions and suggesting alternative answers to old ones, the contributors to this volume provide a better and more detailed understanding of the struggles and strategies of recycling, recuperating and transforming ancient mythology during the Renaissance. All chapters here have a common focus on the re-configuration of classical myths in Early Modern Europe, in political, erotic and ceremonial contexts. By returning to the classical world of cosmic strife and harmony, of gods and metamorphoses, Renaissance poets and artists were able to express their aesthetic ideals, personal preoccupations and moral attitudes. Ancient mythology offered them a full set of useful metaphors, which could take on new meanings in a new cultural context.

    “Are We What We Eat?” Negotiating Identities Through Cuisine and Consumption: A Thing Theory Approach to Alison Wong’s As The Earth Turns Silver2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Culinary narratives are frequently employed to portray migrant identities and societies in Asian diaspora literature This thesis examines cuisine and consumption in Alison Wong’s As The Earth Turns Silver by highlighting the socio-political linkages between material culture and ethnic identity formation of Chinese migrants in New Zealand. Using Brown’s thing theory, food is reframed as site of meaningful discourse to interrogate the role of cuisine and consumption in mediating the migrant experience. It demonstrates the material and cultural importance of food in facilitating ethnic and political identification, transcultural exchange, and independence for frequently oppressed migrant individuals in diaspora literature.  Conversely, food functions as vectors of aggression in racialising the ethnic other by communicating artificial notions of morality, national identity, and purity to reinforce the hegemony. Additionally, culinary objects facilitate how characters articulate their dislocation and fragmentation as hybrid individuals. Finally, I undertake a craft analysis of Wong’s novel by drawing connections between Wong’s hybridity and her narrative design. I use thing theory to demonstrate how characters use culinary objects to negotiate hybridity while the application of transference technique reveals the way material objects are embedded with abstract emotions to communicate writer and character ethnic subjectivity. Findings from the critical analysis are applied to my short story collection Raw. Thing theory provides the theoretical framework for the practical application of transference in my creative thesis, demonstrating its efficacy in improving craft. The creative thesis demonstrates the applicability of theory in creative practice. Finally, it offers an analytical framework for contextualising food as a site of discourse for hybridized identity politics in diaspora literary criticism.

    Circoanalysis: Circus, Therapy and Psychoanalysis2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an object/artefact of circus and a subject/process that makes it. This research considers the subject of the circus-making in order to bring it to the foreground of future discussions about pedagogy, practice and production.  If the shift from Traditional to New Circus brought with it changes in education – the incorporation of theatre and dance – then the emerging Contemporary Circus may need a more refined set of tools to facilitate its creative growth. This thesis sets out how psychoanalytic theories can be adapted and its key practices adopted to bring about this shift from New to Contemporary Circus in pedagogic practice.

                                 The practice tends to the subject that is traditionally mute in the face of the demands of circus, to which it complies becoming an object with minimal agency. Psychoanalytic praxis is adapted to give the subject a voice in order to develop a methodology specific to circus; circoanalysis. Following Freud it starts with the analogy of the circus act and the dream, the proposition that both are productions of the unconscious and contain hidden meanings and desires disguised by the formal content. It continues with the analogy of the symptom, which must be repeated for the partial and ambiguous satisfaction of unconscious desire and is at the threshold of the somatic and the psychic. Winnicott's theory of play is utilised to examine how artists explore and work through certain aspects of anxiety provoking psychic content in their work. Anxiety, in its Lacanian formulation, present in both circus and the consulting room, provides the key to understanding the importance of the Other in the act. Circus, like psychoanalysis, needs its other to recount its story to. Over one hundred research participants, students and professionals, engaged in the practices of questionnaires, focus groups, consultations, interviews and extended periods of circotherapy.

                                 The thesis describes the development of a technique of talking through the manifest, formal content of the circus act in order to get to the unconscious desires that create it. The act is then seen as a symbolic compromise formation enveloping a kernel of real jouissance. In a series of case studies hysteria, obsessive neurosis, masochism, paranoid fantasy and melancholia are seen both as a series of subject positions with regard to circus and its spectator and as ways of managing an excessive enjoyment. Circus is put into a new context as a healing practice for its practitioners, whether in the form of repetition compulsion that turns bad objects into good ones or as a homeopathic self-immunisation against pain, anxiety and the relation to the Other. It casts new light on the problematic the circus has with the theatrical performance tropes of character and narrative which emerge as disavowals of this latent content and relation to the Other and suggests that a move forward, beyond this Other of the circus, implies a certain form of mourning.

    Hybridity, Fluidity and Ingmar Bergman's Alternative Moral Picture: The ideological value of Fanny and Alexander (1983)2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bergman has claimed that he does not have any ideological intention behind his films. He has also been generally criticized for his bourgeois outlook and lack of ideology. Among the vast amount of Bergman studies as well, the ideological aspect of Bergman’s films has been an under-researched area. This thesis will focus on the five-hour television version of Fanny and Alexander (Ingmar Bergman, 1983) and investigate the interrelationship between the formal features of narrative, character, music and their ideological functions, utilizing ideological and formalist approaches. The premise of this study is: films are cultural products that implicitly or explicitly carry ideological messages. Bergman’s films are no exception. Through the blend of contradictory elements in narrative and the representation of fluid subjectivity, Bergman’s cinematic vision provides an “alternative moral picture”, an expression coined by Hector Rodriguez, and functions as ideology critique. This thesis intends to shed more light on the ideological value embedded in Bergman’s films in general, and Fanny and Alexander in particular, and contribute to a comprehensive field of Bergman research.

    Inter esse: Det skapande subjektet, Norén och Reality2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the centre of this dissertation is the artistic formation and, as an extension, the scientific formation. The purpose of the work is to reflect on the way from ambition to creation, to capture what about this process is unique. I have chosen two objects for my research. First, the Swedish playwright Lars Norén's (1944-) direction of a new work for the theatre, his own play Kyla (Chill). Second, Swedish Television (SVT) as they produce their largest-ever stake in the field of entertainment, the Reality-TV series Riket (The Kingdom).

    Concerning the creative process, I partly focus on beginning and end, and partly on the transformation from chaos to order. In this way I am able to focus on the way something unexpected occurs. The question of what constitutes creativity is often raised, but I set out to frame it in my own way: not only with the help of two processes, but also within myself. What is the difference between being a subject, doing something oneself, and observing? In this work I assume both positions. I am a registering and documenting researcher as well as a filmmaker.

    The work is structured by a principle of three: a documentation of the creative processes, a documentary film on Norén, Kall (Norén's drama), and a dissertation which unites everything into a synthesis.

    First, my work acts as a purveyor of insights into and understanding of two major and very different creative processes. Second, it is about two extremely established contemporary phenomena: Norén and the SVT together constitute somewhat of a counterpoint, which make it possible to compare a creative process within the art of theatre to one within TV/entertainment. Third, my work creates a field of tension between the creative process and the analysis via my own production: Norén's drama is both a tool of interpretation in the study of Norén and an intensifying of the overall research result. Fourth, my dissertation aims to bring together aspects, categories and literature in a new way.

    ABSTRACT: Uppsatsen undersöker historiemåleriet som genre med målningen Valdemar Atterdag brandskattar Visby 27 juli 1361 som huvudobjekt. Min metod är ett utforskande om bakgrunden och kontexten kring målningens motiv. En bildanalys av verket görs, genom teorier om visuell retorik, och tankar om nationell identitet, där även motivets anakronismer ifrågasätts. Mottagandet och receptionen av verket år 1882 ställs sedan mot hur verket används idag, dels inom begreppet ”historiskt korrekt”, samt med fokus på pedagogiskt undervisningsmateriel.

    Rembrandt Research Project: En granskning av dess metoder och resultat2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen tittar närmare på metoderna som Rembrandt Research Project har använt för attribuering av verk i Rembrandts stil. Rembrandt Research Project initierades med avsikten att undersöka alla existerande verk i Rembrandts stil och med hjälp av en rationell dokumenterande metod göra en äkthetsbedömning på de verken. Metoden som har använts i början av projektet är konnässörskap och är det som är anledningen till att projektet fick kritik eftersom att många verk avskrevs och sedan tillskrevs Rembrandt flera gånger. Forskare är fortfarande inte överens om hur många verk Rembrandt har målat och det finns forskning som pågår. Efter missnöje och kritik har projektets metoder blivit mer omfattande och tekniska analyser har tillämpats vilket ledde till en mer accepterad forskningsmetod med resultat som var lättare att acceptera. Uppsatsens syfte är att  titta närmare på vad för metod som har använts och hur och vad detta har fått för påverkan på projektet.

    Förändrat museibegrepp?: Om konstmuseers arbete med samlingar på internet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här uppsatsen är syftet att undersöka huruvida museers aktivitet och exponerande av konst på hemsidor haft någon effekt på det traditionella museibegreppet. Frågeställningarna är: Hur presenteras konsten/samlingarna på hemsidorna?, Vilka interaktiva verktyg finns att tillgå?, Hur relateras konst till annan konst på hemsidorna? och Hur står museernas arbete med exponeringen av samlingarna på internet i relation till det traditionella museibegreppet? Frågeställningarna besvaras genom en kartläggning av sex olika museers hemsidor och en komparation av dessa och det traditionella museibegreppet. Det teoretiska förhållningssättet är att medium kan klassificeras som antingen hypermediala eller immediala, dessa begrepp är tagna från Jay David Bolter och Richard Grusins teorier kring remediering.

     

    Undersökningen delas upp utifrån frågeställningarna. De viktigaste resultaten av undersökningen är att besökaren får mycket mer kontroll på hemsidorna än på det fysiska museet. Man kan också se att museernas identitet försvagas på internet, som följd av att hemsidorna är för lika varandra.

     

    Sökord: Museum, internet, hemsidor, Bolter, Grusin, hypermedial, immedial, remediering.

    Bebådelsebilder: Om bildbruk under medeltiden2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the Annunciation motif and the use of images in a medieval socio-cultural context. There are almost 400 medieval images of the Annunciation from the period 1150–1550 in Sweden today. It is found in murals, baptismal fonts, paintings, wooden sculpture, stone reliefs, liturgical vessels, textile works and altarpieces. The aim of the thesis is to present this rich and varied material, and also to relate the images to the milieus where they were used and viewed as objects of cult, and to elucidate the historical situation in which they were used for communicative purposes.  It is argued that an “image-culture” perspective and a long-term investigation can reveal other aspects than a specific study, and that it is fruitful to equally emphasize the rhetoric of the image, the beholders part and the historical context. Hence the picture analysis is based on semiotics and rhetoric analysis of pictures and reception theory. With this point of departure the thesis addresses iconographic problems and shows that text as a source and explanation of historical image can be insufficient.

    The study shows that the figures’ gestures and body language, their contenace, is crucial for our understanding, and remains the most important mark of identification. The motif can be identified even with an angel without wings. The meaning of this universal picture could then be enlarged with specific attributes and symbols with a purpose to emphasize specific ideas. In context this elucidates bishopric, monastic as well as worldly use of imagery. The image context includes motifs from classical antiquity, references to the pious Christian worshiper, as well as symbolic staging of the Gospels and Christian faith. More expected is the biblical history. The motif can also be displayed alone, and thus it can be regarded as a sign. An important outcome is that the Annunciation not is used in legendary suites or in narratives of the Virgin Mary. Hence, the relationship between image and text is not uncomplicated. The thesis shows that people in the Middle Ages were fully aware of the use of pictures and skilfully used the rhetoric of the image.

    Abstract [en]

    Within a hundred years The Bjälbo- or the Folkungar-palace in Vadstena by the Lake Vättern, was built (c. 1250) and transformed from king Valdemars royal palace to the nuns´s convent in the Birgittine monastery (1360s). This paper deals with an era in Swedish history when a powerful nobility wanted to establish a courtly culture and connected to a broader European context in politics as well as in religious life. Birgitta Birgersdotter (1303–1373) was a part of, and a strong force in, this milieu. New attitudes towards smile and laughter ought to be an important factor in such a transformation. Sweden was peripheral  in relation to central cultural areas, but the ambitions to establish the aristocracy after a german/french model was taken very seriously in  13th century Sweden. This is also true for architecture and sculpture. The grand cathedrals of France, Germany and England were models and “the gothic smile” was an ideal outside the courts. By stressing the importance public spaces the paper shows how a visual culture, profane and religious, could be adopted in remote areas. The meeting with medieval faces is a challence not only for us contemporary wievers, but was also during the middle ages.

    Disorientating Love: Queer Time and Space in Contemporary Artistic Practices2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to examine key elements of disorientation and queer temporality which will provide tools to understand queerness of selected contemporary artistic practices. It is concerned with the following questions: What constitutes the queerness of an artistic practice? How do contemporary queer artistic practices foreground the perspectives of queerness in their forms? What kind of disruptions they are causing in the conventional setting of artistic displays from a curatorial standpoint? Disorientations and queer temporalities, as queering the artwork, mean challenging dominant ideologies of the art object by repositioning them particularly in respect of heteronormative structures of time and space. For such an examination, Andrew Haigh’s film Weekend, GaniMeth’s writings, and Sharon Hayes’ Everything Else Has Failed! Don’t You Think It’s Time For Love? are read along with Sara Ahmed’s concept of disorientation and Jack Halberstam’s queer temporality. In doing so, the study explores the potential of artistic practices that allows to experience contemporary queerness. The method is to find queer deviations from existing structures by using the aforementioned concepts for the examination of the artworks, and in turn, explaining how the artistic practices broaden the same concepts by presenting affective experiences. By applying specific concepts from contemporary queer theory to analysis of the artistic practices, a more nuanced understanding of contemporary queerness is being discussed.

    Tanke och tolkning: En komparativ studie av gestaltningsprocessens inverkan på två pianisters interpretation.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats är en komparativ studie av två pianister med olika kulturell bakgrund, Hans Pålsson och Valentina Lisitsa. Utgångspunkt för arbetet är en undran över varför klassiska pianister tenderar att i viss mån gestalta ett stycke olika trots framförande av samma noterade stycke. Frågeställningarna lyder:

    • Hur skiljer sig gestaltningsprocessen åt mellan pianisterna?
    • Hur skiljer sig tolkningar av två specifika verk åt mellan pianisterna?
    • Går det att koppla avvikande skillnader i tolkningarna till gestaltnings­processen för att besvara varför pianisterna i vissa avseenden spelar olika?

    Metoden för att utforska detta möjliggörs först genom en redogörelse av pianisternas gestaltningsprocess där källmaterialet är intervjuer, tv-program och skriftlig dokumentation i form av böcker och artiklar. Därefter en komparativ analys av audiovisuella inspelningar i form av youtube-klipp och tv-program av pianisternas interpretationer av samma verk. De valda verken är två kompositioner av Rachmaninov, preludium i G-Dur op. 32:5 och preludium i g-moll op. 23:5. Resultatet av jämförelsen relateras till pianisternas tankar för att ge generella fingervisningar om vad de personligen uttrycker i vardera tolkning. Uppsatsens resultat är ett argument för att både övergripande och konkreta skillnader i tolkningarna går att koppla till pianisternas gestaltningsprocess och musikåskådning. Slutsatsen är att pianisterna i olika grad är aktivt medskapande till det musikaliska uttrycket i respektive framförande.

    Att konsumera ett förgångt mode: En studie av sex mäns konsumtion av vintagekläder2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen var att genom kvalitativa intervjuer analysera varför män konsumerar vintage i Stockholm i dag? De intervjuade var sex män som var konsumenter till två vintagebutiker i Stockholm, vilka erbjöd herrvintagekläder. Även ägarna till butikerna intervjuades. Vilka är det som handlar och varför väljer de vintage framför annan modekonsumtion? Frågeställningarna har varit; Vad vill ägarna bidra med till marknaden genom sin affärside och hur lyder resonemanget bakom deras koncept? Vad fyller vintage för funktion i modeutbudet för män? Vilka är de manliga bärarna av vintage och vad har de för relation till vintagekläder? Att handla vintagekläder har blivit ett sätt att konsumera mode där vintagekläder innehar andra värden än nyproducerat. Det är ett alternativ till det övriga utbudet för män som enligt respondenterna beskrivits som smalt. Den miljömässiga aspekten var inte en konsumtionsorsak, men en medföljande positiv bieffekt. Den största konsumtionsorsaken var att man kan hitta unika kläder samtidigt som det fanns en tilltro till kvaliteten i äldre kläder. Det var ett mer individuellt uttryck som eftersöktes genom konsumtionen. Vintagekläder särskiljde sig gentemot annan modekonsumtion för männen.

    ABSTRACT:

    Denna uppsats handlar om skolans samlingsrum under olika tider inom Sveriges skolarkitektur. Syftet är att undersöka hur funktion uttrycks i rummen samt hur funktionella aspekter i arkitekturen överlag kan hjälpa till att belysa samhällets syn på skolan. Dessutom diskuteras aulans försvinnande ur skolarkitekturen. Inge Mette Kirkebys avhandling Skolen finner sted och teorin kring de olika rummen utgör grunden för hur man har hittat rummens olika funktioner. 

    Man kan med utgångspunkt i texter om skolarkitektur, skolväsendet och pedagogik urskilja skillnader mellan de undersökta tiderna (1930-tal, 1950-tal, 1970-tal). Aulan under 1930-talet är stramare i sina funktionella möjligheter samtidigt som den kommer från en tid utan utpräglad pedagogik och som på många sätt bygger på tradition. Detsamma kan delvis sägas som skolan under 1950-talet, om än den mer sociala ljushallen är ett helt annat sorts rum som erbjuder fler bruksmöjligheter. Dessa skiljer sig stort i vilka sorts rum det är. 1970-talet är på många sätt tiden där samlingssalen tycks försvinna, trots det kan man urskilja spår från aulan och ljushallen i andra rum. Representanten är gymnastiksalen och dess samlande funktionalitet är inte olik aulans men fylls ut med att den egentligen är till för något annat.

    Överlag kan man se hur synen på barnet och skolan förändras under 1900-talet och hur det med avstamp i Kirkebys begrepp kan avspeglas i arkitekturen på olika sätt. Både i hur samlingssalen är utformad och i vilka sorts klassrum och lokaler som finns.

    Nyckelord: Skolor, arkitektur, Inge Mette Kirkeby, samlingssalar, funktion, aula.

    Nyttan av en halv kalebass: Berättelser om föremål från Afrika2012Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Föremål är trovärdiga. De har använts. Ibland är de slitna, lagade, nedsmutsade. De erbjuder en dörr in mot vardagen. Kanske kan föremål berätta något som inte får plats i vare sig nyhetstexter eller reseskildringar?

    I "Nyttan av en halv kalebass" finns gott om etnografiska detaljer, och också porträtt av föremålens tidigare ägare. Etiska dilemman i samband med förvärven diskuteras.

    Drama into the curriculum: Sisyphus’ work2015In: NJ (Drama Australia journal), ISSN 1445-2294, Vol. 39, no 1, p. 3-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The conditions for drama in compulsory education vary from country to country. The situation in Queensland, Australia, is interesting as Drama was introduced as an arts subject in the compulsory school curriculum (P-10) in 2002. This paper uses a case study approach, to describe and analyses the context and conditions for this specific curriculum development project. Findings suggest that curriculum development is unlikely to be a predictable and linear process, and to some extent, curriculum documents are reflecting changes that have already occurred. The author proposes a list of considerations which may be of benefit to drama educators in a range of curriculum contexts.

    Emotions - Aesthetics - Education: Dilemmas related to students' commitment in Education for Sustainable Development2012In: Journal of Artistic and Creative Education, ISSN 1832-0465, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 32-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emotions are seen as a driving force in students’ learning, but students’ involvement can also be problematic from a teaching perspective if the subject matter is upsetting in a negative way. When aesthetics are part of the teaching, it is more likely that emotional aspects are taken into account. Here, the emotional dimension of teaching will be addressed in connection with Education of Sustainable Development and Drama in Education. Three examples – a wholeclass teaching event, an individual student’s learning process and an example of process drama – are presented in order to discuss how different instructional designs affects the teacher’s possibilities to address students’ emotions. A conclusion is that emotionally loaded subjects require an elaborated teaching strategy in order to develop deeper knowledge. When the teaching includes an aesthetic approach, like educational drama, emotions are not seen as a problem but as an integrated part of the whole.

    Evaluation of Theatre for Social Change: What counts and what is being counted?2013In: Applied Theatre Research, ISSN 2049-3010, E-ISSN 2049-3029, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 91-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Is it possible to evaluate drama and Theatre for Social Change in a way that contributes to the body of knowledge and is meaningful for those involved? Applied theatre is often claimed to have a huge potential, and projects are described as having a strong impact. Requested by external funders, evaluation reports are produced around the world. Here, three projcts – from Palestine, Serbia and Sweden/European Union – are described. The cases are used to discuss how to evaluate Theatre for Social Chang in a fruitful way: What is the result of the evaluations? What kinds of conclusions are drawn? How credible, useful or generative are these evaluations? Special attention is given to the evaluators’ role. If the evaluators express their personal and professional preferences, the outcome may be a more credible evaluation –‘objectivity’ through declared values. Still, dilemmas related to different interests and tie perspectives remain to be solved.

    LIGHT MY FIRE – MAKING SENSE: On materiality, meaning, light and development of curatorial method2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Based on post humanistic theory this thesis brings forward issues relating to light as aparameter being materially meaningful and lights possible impact on the art experience. Through a brief investigation of the topics art experience, human contribution to the artexperience, spatial context – light as parameter, the light as such is put in relation to theActor Network Theory and advocated as an important non-human actor in the network of which an experience takes place. Three reviews of James Turrell’s exhibition The LightInside, in Ytterjärna outside Stockholm 2011 are analyzed to look for corresponding orcontradictive points relating to the facilitation of the art experience, materiality of light andimpact of a sensory experience. Together this opens up for new ways of reading light as a helpful tool for curators to use when facilitating the art experience.

    The Caring Curator: Exploring Conditions for Care in Curatorial Practices2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of care has recently gained significant attention in cultural institutions and among artists. This trend was particularly evident in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement, which contributed to increased public programming focused on caring practices and the concept of care. One notable example is documenta fifteen, organized by ruangrupa, which used "lumbung" (a method of collectivity and sharing) as its core working method for both funding distribution and organization. Previous research has shown how the role of the curator has changed from one who takes care of artworks to one that is dependent on “social infrastructures and personal charm.” This study identifies problems and structures that hinder care practices among curators through interviews and an auto-ethnographic approach.

    Naturfilm2021Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Naturfilm består av tre kortare bildessäer som reflekterar över relationen mellan människa och natur i klassisk svensk naturdokumentärfilm. I arbetet belyses också hur distinktionen mellan natur och kultur förhandlas inom moderniteten. Essäerna omfattar reflektioner över landskapet, naturen som resurs, art- och genusrelationer, ursprungskulturer och mediets materialitet. I bildessäerna kombineras tecknade bilder med en berättarröst; teckningar av frysta filmbilder från dokumentärfilmer visas parallellt med berättarröstens fragmentariska reflektioner över bilden som representation och materiell inskription. Essäerna är mediala transformationer av svenska dokumentärfilmer från den klassiska erans höjdpunkt, mellan sent 1930-tal och det tidigt 1950-tal. Denna period sammanfaller med ’den stora accelerationen’, då exploateringen av naturens resurser ökar explosionsartat samtidigt som avståndet mellan människa och natur ökar.
