Abstract [en]

Culture is a sector that in last years have become more apparent in urban development strategies. A cultural driven growth strategy was visible in the northern Swedish city of Umeå, when hosting the European Capital of Culture in 2014. The choice of Umeå as the Swedish ECoC was heavily dependent on its focus on Sami culture. Single events within the yearlong program where mostly to be found within the city of Umeå. While Sami culture and other regional cultural expressions were part of representations of northern spaces transcending beyond the place space of urban Umeå. This spatial duality reflected in the Umeå2014 program is partly reproduced in the general promotion endeavors' of Umeå. The city is branded as a young, open, growing city and as a part of a larger regional setting containing natural and regional resources, including Sami culture. The chapter is based on literature review, thematic analysis of websites for Umeå2014, documents from Umeå municipality, and on author's direct observation. Analysis of the spatial dimensions expressed through single events included in the program year in Umeå2014 reveals mixed spatial references, with a particular focus on northern spaces.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the article is to present and discuss functions of public monuments in relation to different dimensions of geographical space. The authors discuss public spaces, monuments, public art, based on a mixed-method approach and an analysis of scientific literature as the main research method. The theoretical discussion is supplemented with the results of Internet searches and an analysis of media supplements, and specific examples are given, including some from Poland. An additional method was autoethnography, which involved an analysis of cultural phenomena based on the authors' experience. The analysis revealed that monuments were part of public art and thus enriched public spaces in cities. They fulfilled different important functions: artistic, symbolic, commemorative, political, social, religious, marketing, and mixed. Additionally, the monuments reflected the contemporary transformation of ideas and social orders and therefore also reflected contemporary urban debates. They were products of social relations, powers, ideas, identities, and the collective memory reflected in the urban spatial structure of cities. The authors conclude that the examples presented in the demonstrate that monuments perform various functions in urban public spaces. From a spatial perspective, the role of monuments depends on their different impacts on people's perceptions and interpretations of space.
