    Omfamningar. Rummets och gränsens meningar: Om Louise Bourgeois' och Rachel Whitereads verk2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

      The aim of this dissertation is to create and convey an understanding of the significance of space and limits in the works of artists Louise Bourgeois and Rachel Whiteread. Focus is placed upon the physical and spiritual dimensions of their works of art. The primary material is made up by Louise Bourgeois’s and Rachel Whiteread’s sculptures, mainly six pieces: Louise Bourgeois’s Quarantania I (1949-1952), Fée Couturière (1963) and Cell VII (1998), Rachel Whiteread’s Untitled (1991), Untitled (Room) (1993) and Embankment (2005).

        Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris, in 1911 (she has lived in New York since 1938), and Rachel Whiteread was born in London, in 1963. They belong to different generations and cultures, but come together through the use of a relation which I have perceived as a main theme in the artistry of both women. A relation, the exploration of which begins in the title Embraces. The study rests on a bodily structure, in method as well as in disposition. I have met the sculptures in the present room, struck up a dialogue with them. The chapters Birth, Body and Space bring the works of Louise Bourgeois and Rachel Whiteread together with an expansive historical and aesthetical material, in order to widen and deepen the dialogue on the significance of limits and space.

    Fem ödekyrkor i Norrland: kyrklig förnyelse, kulturminnesvård och kyrkorestaureringar vid 1900-talets början1997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The new church of Ytterlännäs, a large Neo-Classical sermon church, was consecrated in 1854. The old, medieval church was far too small to house the growing number of visitors. It was therefore abandoned, but managed to be spared from demolition. A couple of decades into the twentieth century did the church once again become the object of the congregation's maintenance. It was restored and has been used for services since 1939.These abandoned churches are the subject of the present dissertation. The main aim of this thesis is answering such questions as: Why where the ancient churches abandoned? Why where they later restored and which individuals or groups advocated restoration? How where the projects realized? What guiding principles informed their work and how was the practical matter of restoration done? What values did the people involved see in the restored objects?The chapter Old and New Churches is a general introduction to the subject and certain aspects of the Neo-Classical churches are treated. The chapter entitled The Congregation and the Abandoned Churches deals with the situation from the perspective of the Swedish Lutheran Church, where the Young Church movement embraced a faith in the church as a force capable of cultural renewal, which resulted in a wider interest in preservation and restoration of the old churches. The chapter The Ideology of Restoration deals with how modern ideas about restoration were mediated from Europe to Sweden. Sigurd Curman presented the new antiquarian doctrine of restoration in two articles from 1905 and 1906. The chapter The Preservation of Cultural Monuments and the Abandoned Churches shows that the restorations was made possible by the fact that the responsible authorities possessed better tools for the successful completion of their task by this time.In the chapter Erik Salvén and the Abandoned Churches the man is introduced, that meant the most for the restoration of the churches which this thesis deals with. These are the subjects of the following five chapters: Trönö in Hälsingland, Alnö in Medelpad, Ragunda and Oviken in Jämtland and Ytterlännäs in Ångermanland. The results of this thesis are discussed and summarized in the last chapter, Interpreting the History of a Church.

    On gender and the ideology of the celebration of Christmas in Swedish art turn of the century 1900: Elsa Beskow, Carl Larsson and Jenny Nyström

    Contemporary art is not depicting the Christmas celebration in the same way as during the turn of the century 1900. In Sweden artists as Elsa Beskow, Carl Larsson and Jenny Nyström made illustrations of Christmas that also became part of the celebration itself, through then new media such as Christmas cards and illustrated magazines. It was a modern, urban, middle-class audience that consumed the images, but the motifs were looking back to a rural past. Christmas turned both patriarchal in connecting the family father with Christmas presents, foods and material richness. It also turned nationalistic when a Swedish version of the Santa Clause was invented from the traditional ”tomte” (gnome) who originally was guarding and working at the farms. Especially in the work of Nyström the images of Christmas celebrations was both connected to a presumed historical past as well as a modern future. References to pagan past, present Christianity and modern lifestyles collaborates in making a typically Swedish Christmas. Even more interesting, these century-old images are still part of Swedish Christmas celebrations. In a time when family constellations are changing and Sweden is turning more multicultural, we hold on to a traditional ideal of how to make a perfect family Christmas. There is a timeless quality in Christmas celebrations and a sense of a global community when we imagine that everybody else in the nation or globally are doing the exact same thing as we do right now. There are few things experienced more normal and working normative than families and home life.

    Materiality, rhetoric and emotion in the Pietà: the Virgin Mary in images of piety in 15th century Sweden2016In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 41, no 3, 271-288 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the representation of materiality on wall paintings, as depicted objects functioned as triggers of emotion to convey meaning in images. In medieval aesthetics images were made to engage all the senses in the spectator so as to create a truthful experience. The material perspective combines well with medieval rhetoric in understanding this process, particularly the concepts of ekphrasis, enargeia and ductus. By doing close readings of images, and identifying materials, figures, objects, gestures and so on, in the same manner as one can close read texts, narratives of the images can be discovered. It is also a reading that helps in identifying emotive expressions and rhetorical gestures that together with material aspects of images and texts also help in identifying gender-related contents. During the 15th century the Pietà (the mourning Virgin Mary holding her dead son) was introduced in Sweden. The image is key in understanding the Marian cult as it was established alongside the expanding devotion to the Virgin in the Nordic countries. By fusing the material aspect and rhetoric in a close reading of the motif that focuses on gender and emotion this study aims to find alternative paths in analysing medieval art.

    Pietà - Jungfru Marias sorg och Kristi död i svensk medeltid2013In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, no 2, 14-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Pietà was introduced in Swedish medieval art during the late fourteenth century and this article is focussing on its expressions of grief and death. The popularity of the Pietà can be explained by the historical context (the Black Death and the Hundred Years War), hard times that made death and despair extremely present, connected to sin, and a common experience for all no matter of social hierarchies. Virgin Mary is a vital part in the Pietà as she is both an intercessor for humans who wants forgiveness for their sins and the voice of her son’s message since he can speak no more. It is through her story, experience and grief that humans can both understand and find the merciful love Christ has promised after death that will guarantee eternal life in Heaven

    Rummet som konstverk: om konstnärsparet Charles Rennie Mackintosh och Margaret Macdonald2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present dissertation deals with the artistic collaboration of a married couple, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald. Living in Glasgow at the turn of the century, theeå, Swedeny concentrated their work on interior design. However, artistic collaboration has been neglected by traditional art history, with its concentration on individual creativity. For the couple in question, this has meant that the work they created together has been mainly attributed to Mackintosh, thereby relegating Mac­donald to the role of spouse and assistant, rather than co-creator. The present disser­tation presents a different picture of the couple's collaboration, challenging and revi­sing our cultural perceptions about the creative abilities of the respective sexes.

    A selection of interiors created by the Mackintoshes is studied in order to shed light on their collaborative efforts. The analyses embark from the perspectives of «masculine» and «feminine» in order to show how the Mackintoshes created artistic wholeness in their interiors, while at the same time opening up the spaces for a mixture of actors, i.e. making the rooms accessible to men and women alike through their designs. During this epoch, the concepts of «masculine» and «feminine» were employed as natural points of reference in an attempt to explain social and cultural phenomena scientifically. The Mackintoshes made use of the era's conventions when creating interiors in the accepted division of masculine (hallways, dining rooms, libraries) and feminine (bedrooms, salons) spaces. However, with time they began to combine these accepted gender forms in order to create something new and modern. Just as the Mackintoshes could create more powerful works of art by combining their respective artistic talents, their spaces could accrue greater significance through the combination of masculine and feminine principles.

    Resande i arkitektur: John Åkerlunds liv och verk2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis describes John Åkerlund (1884-1961) as a prominent architect among all those who were active in Sweden in the first half of the 20th century. The aim is to shed light on an extensive and partly unique professional achievement, somewhat overshadowed by those who have so far been paid more attention. The chief source has been the architect’s complete archive from the start of his office in 1909 to the time of John Åkerlund’s decease. The material was donated in 1997 to the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm. The questions mainly concern Åkerlund’s role among customers and colleagues, his sources of inspiration, and his style and position in the context of the Swedish history of architecture.

    The thesis is divided into three main sections. The first deals with Åkerlund’s life. Its point of departure is his studies of electrical engineering in his hometown Borås. Via a decisive period in Dalarna his transition to the architects’ profession is described, with trainee work with the architects Jacob Gate and Torben Grut. His broad activities as manager of his architect office and an official in the National Agency for Education are described,as well as his activities in the Society for the Care of Local Arts, Crafts and History’, in addition to which he also worked as a course director and writer.

    The second main section describes Åkerlund’s architectural production, which was widely spread as regards both contents and geography, to which the book’s title alludes. His work and projects are divided into categories in five chapters. They deal with schools with emphasis on folk high schools and Åkerlund’s nine church rooms, with for example Edefors Church in Harads, North Bothnia. I further describe Åkerlund’s work for the Swedish Touring Club with stations from Abisko in Lappland to Grövelsjön in Dalarna and his work with industrial buildings, above all for Boliden AB. The last part of this section sheds light on other projects, for example dwellings and public buildings such as public baths, but also furniture and interior fittings.

    The third and concluding main section is a discussion and summary of the contents starting out from the initial questions. Åkerlund is placed in the context of his period and content. A list of projects is attached, comprising all the works that are now known from the start of the office to the architect’s decease. It is divided into fifteen categories and within these presented in chronological order.

    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    The purpose of this essay is to analyse and interpret artist Hans Hedberg’s monumental, ceramic reliefs in Sweden and France. Hedberg is internationally famous for his ceramic fruits and eggs in different glaces and formats. A mostly unknown side of his artistic production is that he produced about 50 ceramic reliefs during the 1950s and up to the 1970s in public buildings. Hedberg was one of very few foreign artists in France, who, during a long period of time, produced monumental, public reliefs for the French state. The essay analyses the European Postwar Period in France and Hedberg’s reliefs from his early figurative works to his abstract reliefs. It also links Hedberg to Nouveau Réalisme and the Renaissance in Italy.

    Campus Sundsvall: att bygga symbolvärden2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present dissertation deals with the establishment of Campus Sundsvall, MidSweden University, and discusses how the architecture visualizes visions and ideas of the participants involved, the city of Sundsvall, the university and the proprietor, Akademiska Hus. The purpose is to investigate the process where the symbolic values are formulated and materialized – the interaction between architecture, language and visual material.

    The first chapter discusses the American tradition of campus planning and how the idea has been transformed in Sweden to represent an area, often located in the city, gathering one or more buildings used by a university.

    The second chapter deals with the architectural competition of Campus Sundsvall and analyzes the program, the solutions presented by the participants and eventually how Campus Sundsvall turned out in the late 1990s.

    The third chapter investigates the sources of the concepts of the architecture and the planning model and discusses why the city of Sundsvall was attracted by these ideas. The planning history of Sundsvall and especially Stenstaden, the city centre of Sundsvall, are central in interpreting the question of identity as a symbolic value.

    In the last chapter, discussing the campus as a creative space, the present increase of IT supported distance courses questions the importance of the university campus.

    Ridiculing Suffering on YouTube: Digital Parodies of Emo Style2016In: Blunt Traumas: Negotiating Suffering and Death / [ed] Nate Hinerman, Holly Lynn Baumgartner, Oxford: Inter-Disciplinary Press , 2016, 31-40 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerous YouTube videos represent and comment on self-injury, as evidenced bya search for this term, which produces about 123,000 results (6 June 2014). Inprevious studies, we have explored how suffering, the body, and gender areperformed in such personal videos. During our YouTube study, we have alsoencountered a specific category of video clips that merits further discussion: videosthat in different ways attempt to parody or make fun of self-injury and mentaldistress. What most of them have in common is that they focus on self-injury aspart of the so-called emo subculture or emo style. The purpose of this chapter is todiscuss what such videos tell us about cultural conceptions of suffering and gender.Our analysis builds on a small sample of three YouTube videos in which emoculture and mental distress are parodied and ridiculed through exaggeration. Wedemonstrate that the parodies revolve around two main points: emo as a stylisedperformance of suffering, and emo as queer masculinity. The chapter concludes bysuggesting that this ridiculing of emo culture builds upon discourses of hegemonicmasculinity and normative heterosexuality which are also likely to haveconsequences for the understanding of mental suffering, emotional sensitivity, andgender in a broader context.

    Insecurity as Critical Necessity. Sovereign Research Subjects, the Concept of Excellence and the Importance of Negative Emotions in Academia

     The article explore the operations of emotions of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and ambivalence in the context of the neoliberal academia of today and it’s focus on excellence, competition and constant self-evaluations. Maria Jönsson and Anna Rådström investigate what these ”negative” emotions do (Ahmed 2004) in relation to a concept such as “excellence”. They discuss how these “doings” can be understood and how they relate to questions of power and hierarchy. Jönsson and Rådström suggest that emotions of vulnerability and inadequacy in research should not be seen as something to be overcome, but rather as something to engage with and pay attention to. These emotions provide us with a sensitivity to research as an open process, open to the unexpected and the “not-yet” (Sedgwick 2003) instead of producing “knowingness” (Scheman 2011) and sovereign research subjects. Jönsson and Rådström utilize the theoretical work of Hélène Cixous and of Judith Butler (2003) in order to discuss how insecurity and ambivalence can be used in self-reflexive and critical work in academia.
