    Den svenska kulturmiljövårdens värdegrunder: En idéhistorisk bakgrund och analys2003Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att dagens kulturmiljövård befinner sig i en brytningsfas är knappast ett kontroversiellt påstånde. Frågan är dock vad som egentligen är nytt i minnesvården och hur detta förhåller sig till fältets tradition? Denna bok vill ge ett bidrag till förståelsen för linjerna i minnesvårdens utveckling under senare delen av1900-talet.

    Med utgångspunkt i 1960-talets nya statliga kulturpolitik, följer redogörelsen den organisatoriska och ideologiska bakgrunden till lanseringen av kulturmiljövård som antikvarisk praktik under 1990-talet.

    Riktlinjerna och bevekelsegrunderna för dagens minnesvård presenterades reda med målsättningarna i 1974 års kulturproposition. Framförallt stod här visionen om kulturell jämlikhet och allmänhetens möjlighet att tillägna sig ett officiellt kulturutbud högt på dagordningen. Med 1988 års proposition om kulturmiljövård vidgades de traditionellt etablerade bevarandeanspråken kring fysiska objekt och avgränsade miljöer mot en bredare miljövård, där ökad samverkan mellan samhällsektorer och bättre integrering med samhällsplaneringen var övergripande målsättningar. Kulturmiljövårdens etablering gavs också stöd genom förnyad lagstiftning, där målet att samordna natur- och kulturvård, liksom regional och kommunal planering, härleddes från en vision om samlad miljövård. Det för samhället legitima syftet bakom nyordningen speglades genom en ny ideologisk laddning av det traditionella begreppet "kulturarv". Kulturarv kom nu dels att stå för den traditionella syftningen på kulturobjekt och miljöer, tillsammans med förment nya dimensioner kring medborgarinflytande och dynamisk kulturprocess – det sista uttryck som "kulturarvsbruk". Det i antikvariska sammanhang tidigare sekundära brukandeperspektivet lyfts därmed fram, tillsammans med turism och regional tillväxt, som väsentliga aspekter på statens fortsatta ansvar för kulturarvssektorn.

    En stor del av boken ägnas åt att analysera värderingar bakom dessa proklamerat nya inslag i kulturmiljövården. Minnesvården står inför utmaningen att praktiskt tillämpa en dynamisk bevarandeideologi som inte längre kan hänvisa till nationen och folket som legitima grunder för det statliga ansvaret.

    The heritage business: About the use of heritage yesterday and today

    The topic for this article is the growing “heritage business” in Sweden, with special attention to and example from the visiting area in Västerbotten called Guldriket.

    The article starts with an exposé over how the museums and the science around ancient history have motivated its existence in relation to the public community. From initial centralization and public education during the last 200 years has, in the later part of the twentieth century, cultural politic gravitated against decentralization and democratization in the process of making and caretaking of public heritages. In the same time shall cultural politics still act in a direction to keep distance from the commercial market. This results in a message in two directions which is equally confusing for the common public as it is for the antiquarians. This art of dilemma is discussed in relation to a specific case from Guldriket, which highlights value making and issues in preservation in context from both the horizon of the official and the local/layman.

    Fädernesland och framtidsland: Sigurd Curman och kulturminnesvårdens etablering2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study of the establishment of heritage preservation in Sweden during the first half of the 20th century focuses upon Sigurd Curman (1879-1966), art historian, restoration architect and Director of Antiquities. Its purpose is to show how an older, more research-oriented form of heritage work grew to become a more socially-conscious vari­ant of cultural preservation. The period of establishment embraces organizational inquiries, government legisla­tion and institutionalization, and as Director of Antiquities between 1923 and 1946, Curman was a main actor. He had already become a key figure in debates on the official organization of preservation activities in Sweden well before this, whose early career dealt chiefly with the restoration of churches. Curman advocated the accentuation of aspects of cultural history. An opinion had been formed among cultural historians and museum curators against what they perceived as the obsolete manner of pursuing heritage efforts conducted by the Royal Swedish Acad­emy of Letters, History and Antiquities and its secretary, the Director of Antiquities, who was also head of Swe­den's main official museum, the Museum of History. Criticism was aimed at all aspects of official heritage preservation efforts, including legislation, restoration policy, the care of ancient ruins and treatment of finds, as well as the lack of understanding on the behalf of the central authority for local and regional interests. The latter referred to the emotive aspects of heritage preservation, which in contemporary verbiage was summarized by the term "piety". The central authority was accussed of not understanding "popular" heritage preservation outside the context of the museum and of displaying a lack of piety toward "the cultural memory of the Fatherland". These feelings were based primarily on two prerequisites: an established perception of a homogeneous national culture with ancient roots in the past, and an apprehension that it was in the interests of society that the government become responsible for the administration of this material cultural heritage. This ambition can be summarized by the term "preservation of cultural heritage" and its foremost exponent was Sigurd Curman. The dissertation fol­lows Curman from his childhood in a wealthy Stockholm family, to his early career in restoration and as lecturer in architectural history at the College of Art. In 1912, Curman was appointed to the first chair in these fields estab­lished at the College, which he held until 1918 when he became advisor in the cultural history of architecture at the new Royal Swedish Board of Public Building. When appointed Director of Antiquities he began concretizing the official organization of heritage preservation. During the 1910s he participated in a comprehensive, dual inquiry into the organization and legislation of the government's heritage preservation policy. When its final report was presented in 1922 it was tabled, but still acted as the basis for Curman's continued efforts. He created a modem bureaucracy out of the council of the Department of Antiquities and contributed to moving the central authority from the ground floor of the National Museum to its own premises in midtown Stockholm. Curman would also work to improve legislation to protect cultural monuments and developed museum activities by creat­ing a countrywide organization of county antiquarians and regional museums. When Sweden's new antiquities law was passed by parliament in 1942, Curman had not only led the inquiry leading up to it, but had formulated the draft of the legislation himself. By the time of his retirement in 1946 he was a legend in antiquarian circles, the very personification of Swedish cultural heritage preservation. The present dissertation shows how Curman achieved this status, though it also details the efforts of numerous other actors participating in the process and sees Curman as a bureaucrat who realized demands for a renewal of heritage preservation in the country.

    Museerna och forskningen2009In: Nordisk Museologi, ISSN 1103-8152, no 2, p. 110-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the theme of research conducted at the museums, with a focus on state investigations, cultural politics and the internal development of the Swedish museal profession. The statistics and surveys that have been prepared on the theme of research at the Swedish museums all point in one direction – there is a lack of museum staff with professional research competence and the level of active research performed at the museums is generally very low. This article discusses these facts from a historic and museological point of view. The author claims that both museums and universities would benefit from a higher level of research being performed at the Swedish museums, especially when one looks at the nearly non-existent research about the exhibition as a arena for multi-lingual and multi-modal communication.

    Abstract [en]

    About the museums social commission and the museological analysis

    The article begins with the question if the traditional role of the museum is to prevent the disappearance of material evidence of culture, in order to make exhibitions and visualise “culture”. The theme of material vs immaterial culture is discussed and the question of the status of the material traces on social identity and cultural meaning making is raised. In order to discuss this in a comprehensive way the starting point is the museum staff’s common identity: the museum business as “practical”. This practical identity connects to the museum’s task to collect and preserve. However, when we look at the task of conveying knowledge, with the exhibition as a venue, then it is hardly the practical competence that makes a museum successful or not. The major claim for the museum’s advantage to other institutions in society is that it represents unique resourses for knowledge and cultural identity. This self-image is sometimes reproduced without any reflections, even in museological analyses, of which I give examples. When the museums social commission is currently under negotiation, in relation to postmodern, global, multicultural and economic influence, it is important to deal with both the internal “museum culture” and external museolocial paradigmatic interpretation, in order to achieve any possibility of change. In accordance with Elaine Hooper-Greenhill, I argue that the museum indeed can be a place of cultural self knowledge and meaning making, but this presupposes that the museum staff is open for broader theoretical approaches and are willing to implement this into their exhibitions. With an example from The Museum of National Antiquities [Historiska Museet, Stockholm] exhibition Prehistories II, I argue that museums are in a state of deconstructive change, which first and foremost challenge the idea that the museum’s main task is to deal with artefact preservation. Secondly, change will also require exhibition curators that have a scientific or at least educated knowledge about the conditions behind historical interpretation.

    The Museum of National Antiquities in Sweden and its national agenda: an overview of the 1900-1970 period2012In: Great Narratives of the PastTraditions and Revisions in National Museum / [ed] Dominique Poulot, Felicity Bodenstein, José María Lanzarote Guiral, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2012, , p. 23p. 229-251Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    How has a national narration been established and reproduced at Sweden’s central museum for Prehistory and the Middle Ages, the Museum of National Antiquities (MNA, today named the National Historical Museum)? The chronological framework for answering this question here relates to the period from 1900 to 1970 with an emphasis on the 1920-50 period, the foundational time of the Swedish Welfare state. During these decades the MNA changed on many levels, including a new building and a new organizational structure, which entailed a change of exhibitions as well. At the same time the museum presents a remarkable continuity with regard to its objectives and agenda.

    During most of the 20th century the link between statistically processed object types and ethnographic interpretations was and is a discursive construction. However, the situation between 1900 and 1950 was unique with regard to the MNA exhibitions and the ideological profile of archaeology. What flourished then was an archaeology that might be characterized as nationally romantic, culturally conservative and racial, and one might add that this changed only gradually in the wake of the Second World War. Still, and despite certain sympathizers of Nazi Germany amongst its practitioners, Swedish archaeology cannot be compared to that developed in the context of Nazi ideology. It did not advocate or actively support racial war, euthanasia or aggressive racial hygiene (Baudou 2002). Nevertheless, Swedish archaeology formed part of an international context, where cooperation and correspondence between researchers, not least German ones, were a natural part of the practice. This article provides a brief outline of the theme of national identity and archaeological representation in Sweden, mainly through an interpretation of the displays of the early 20th century in the MNA.

    Abstract [en]

    The object in the museum – On the demarcation and interpretation of a research topic. This article was written to reflect on the specific role of artefacts as research-related “source material” in the museum. It represents the author’s struggle to narrate a comprehensive interpretation about this theme, as member of the team project “The museum, the exhibition and the visitors: Meaning making in a new arena for learning and communication”, financed by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet). The theme of this present article is therefore the musealized objects and the notion that these artefacts represent resources to cultural analyses and historical knowledge. A leading hypothesis is the concept that postmodern de-constructivism during the late twentieth century has changed our perspective on the artefact from a more or less neutral vessel for historic and cultural knowledge to a multidimensional medium. This has an ongoing impact on archaeological and cultural museum exhibitions. The article discusses what kind of impact the “cultural turn” has on present-day exhibitions. The author states that we must both understand and accept the multidimensional meanings of artefacts, as we also must comprehend why professionals within the field of archaeology and their related museums now struggle to find new agendas for interpretation and authority related to cultural representation by artefacts.
