    Placing Art In the Public Realm2012Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The public realm is a space of paradoxes. While on one hand it seems to be shrinking due to commercialization and to be losing its position as a forum where different agendas can meet, it can also be said to be expanding through social media and thus merge with traditional “private” areas.

    The contributions in this volume range from philosophical and political takes on the idea of the public to texts that understandthe current situation from the point of view of the art scene. Thinkers such as Chantal Mouffe, Jürgen Habermas and Giorgio Agamben meet, for example, with local Swedish graffiti, the international digital world and multicultural New Delhi. All offer perspectives on what the public-and the private-realms might mean today.

    Before and After "At Work With" Venice Biennale 20102018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the collaborative, society engaged practices of several Nordic architects that formed a joint-venture called “At Work With” at the Nordic pavilion, Venice Architecture biennale in 2010. As such, “At Work With, a hub for alternative practices within the field of architecture and design, forms the epi centrum of an emerging scene.

    The exhibition opens for three different discussions, the before, during and after of the exhibition.

    Before. Discussing the role of networks and dissemination of the many times temporary, site specific projects that the different groups work with. Thus, documentation and distribution through exhibitions, in magazines and on web-pages, became crucial for forming what Canadian media scientist Will Straw defines a scene, a scene that later could use the exhibition at the Venice Biennale as a site for practice.

    During. Following the exhibition as it unfolded over the 100 days of the biennale, as it was used as an ongoing space for production. Turning the sometimes static space for representation into an active space for participation. The Nordic pavilion changed into a temporary office space with a new “host” each week of the biennale.

    After. What ever happened to the net-worked based scene afterwards? Did the 100 days have any implications after the biennale? How was it received in a narrow discourse of Nordic architecture, and how was it understood in a broader context of international alternative practices?

    Subjektiva rumsligheter i ljudkonst: En studie av tre samtida ljudinstallationer2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to investigate how subjective spaces are created and experienced in the installations Whispering Wall III (2010), Sound Forest (2011) and The Forty Part Motet (2001). These three contemporary sound installations are examined through the theoretical perspectives of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, based on his work The phenomenology of perception. My thesis establishes that the subjective spaces that are experienced in these installations are created through movement, interaction and contextual factors. This thesis does as well establish that subjective spaces are produced and created on the basis of specific conditions.

    Translation and Translocality in Gin Müller's Trans Gender Moves2016In: Transgender Studies Quarterly, ISSN 2328-9252, E-ISSN 2328-9260, Vol. 3, no 3-4, p. 611-617Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reviews Gin Müller's play Trans Gender Moves, arguing that it has translation, on several levels and in its broadest sense, at the core of its themes and aesthetics. Based on the performers’ real-life stories, Trans Gender Moves is about what it might mean to live in transition between and across genders, but also languages, cultures, and times. With a departure from their own translational experience as an audience member, the author looks at how the play connects translation to interpretation and discusses how the stage is crafted into a “translation site,” or “translocality,” where the overlapping places, times, and languages of the performers’ everyday lives are explored. It is crucial to the politics of Trans Gender Moves that all the actors, as well as the director, have themselves experienced living trans lives and that the play, by telling the life stories in the words of the people who lived them, brings trans voices into the realm of authority. Moreover, it is especially noteworthy that the performers and the audience are involved in a form of engagement that begins from multiplicity. The author suggests that the play might be used to further reflect on the challenge of how we are to escape monolingualism in transgender studies.

    Samiska ceremonitrummors inre och yttre värld: En studie av två goavdát och deras museala representation2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the represention of sami drums (goavdát) at museums in Sweden. I performed a case study of two exhibitions at different museums, focusing especially on one drum in each. The museums consisted of Nordiska museet in Stockholm and Ájtte – Swedish mountain and sami museum in Jokkmokk. The purpose was to examine them from a viewpoint based on the perception of a both historical and ongoing situation of colonialism of the sami people. The motivation to study museums derives from the idea that museum possesses an ability to create value. In combination with the exhibition I also studied the original function of the drums and interpreted the images on them. The investigation showed diffrent problematic issues in the exhibitions: Ájtte has a deficiency of space which complicates a dialog between the drum and the visitor. Nordiska museet creates a conception of the drums as reduced to a central object in a colonial process without any concerns of the native use. This results in an urge to either establish new exhibitions or updated the ones that already exist since the museums are part of creating a picture of sami identity for the public and therefore - creates value.

    On Sublimity and the Excessive Object in Trans Women's Contemporary Writing2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines trans women's contemporary writing in relation to a theory of the excessive object, sublimity, transmisogyny and minor literature. In doing so, this text is influenced by Susan Stryker's work on monstrosity, abjection and transgender rage in the article “My Words to Victor Frankenstein Above the Village of Chamounix: Performing Transgender Rage” (1994).

    The excessive object refers to a concept coined in this thesis to describe sublimity from another perspective than that of the tradition following from Immanuel Kant's A Critique of Judgment, building on feminist scholarship on the aesthetic of the sublime. Of particular relevance are critiques of the patriarchal dynamics of sublimity and the idea of the feminine sublime as it is explored with reference to literature by Barbara Freeman in The Feminine Sublime: Gender and Excess in Women's Fiction (1995).

    Following from the feminist critique of sublimity, trans women's writing is explored as minor literature through a re-reading of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's work on Franz Kafka in Kafka. Toward a Minor Literature (1986), with attention to the importance that conditions of impossibility, marginality and unintelligibility holds for the political possibilities of minor literature.

    These readings form the basis for an analysis of four literary texts by two contemporary authors, Elena Rose, also known as little light, and Sybil Lamb, in addition to a deeper re-engagement with Stryker's work. In so doing, this thesis also touches on topics of power, erasure, trauma, self-sacrifice, appropriation and unrepresentability.

    Fear not going astray – discover the unknown

    A filmmaker’s take on art and science

     

    The purpose of this essay is to examine and make visible the filmmaker’s relation to art and scientific research regarding the investigation of new knowledge. Can art and science meet, and in what way do they connect?

    I have finished Secrets of Animal Anatomy (aka Kropparnas Arkiv), a film project I was working on for eight years. I finished it while I was writing on this essay. The film combines art and science in a meeting between an artist and a scientist. During the process, the question arose: how can you search for something when you don’t even know what it is you are searching for?. It is not wholly new, but has been implicit in discussions with colleagues and in film projects. This became my scientific question. My aim is to investigate how to make the artistic process of filmmaking and film deeper, by reflecting upon and investigating this question. I have chosen to interview three women – one artist, one actor-director, and one scientist. The selection is not meant to be representative. It may seem obvious that the actor, director and artist have more in common with each other than with the scientist, but is this necessarily true? Using this question as a starting point, I aim at finding out differences and similarities between the three interviewees and the filmmaker.

    I have categorised the interviewees’ answers under different themes like “Choice or distinguishing”, “Curiosity in practice or creativity”, and “To evoke the unexpected”. In my investigation, I employ qualitative methods; I analyse the answers and then theorise.

    Phenomenological hermeneutics, or Topos theory, has been the backbone of my study. It is undoubtedly so, that Aristotle and his thinking is the foundation of the theories and thoughts that I apply in this essay.

     

    My ambition is to bring the artistic vision to the scientific world, and to view the terrain of science with a double gaze, which I believe can contribute to an understanding both wider and deeper. Is there a strong connection and strong similarities between film, art, and science, and are these three entities prerequisites for one another – humanities and science? Answering my question has been a method to make visible a method, barely measurable yet visible for those willing to see it. The question gives rise to a process, reflecting the interviewees’ stance on different problems within the scope of their work, and how they proceed in their search. What they all have in common is boundaries, creating them and transcending them. In order to break boundaries, it is necessary to create new lines of thought and transcend limitations. This is something common to all informants.

    The known is necessary to examine the unknown.

    Prins Eugen som monumentalmålare: A study of mural painting as an artform2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to examine the relationship between picture and room, between wallpainting and architecture. The basis for such exploration is the mural painting in Sweden at the turn of the 20th century, and the artist in focus is Prince Eugen (1865-1947).

    His works "Sommar"(1904), "Rimfrosr"(1909) & "Staden vid vattnet"(1922) and the rooms in which they are in make for an anlysis concerning how the totality of the space is experienced by the viewer.

    The main issue in mentioned expeience is how the mural is perceived with regard to the other elements in the room. And here, the walls' "flatness" enhancing its decorative qualities plays in. The problem with a mural built on the principles of perspective becomes evident when a wall is seen to vanish through the painting of an illusion on it.

    Analys av meningsskapandet i Hannah Höchs fotomontage Schnitt mit dem küchenmesser Dada durch die letzte weimaren bierbauchkulturepoche Deutschlands2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines Hannah Höchs photomontage Schnitt mit dem Küchenmesser Dada durch die letzte weimaren bierbauchkulturepoche Deutschlands. The paper has as its aims to understand and analyze the predominated allegorical interpretation of Schnitt and to develop a logic how meaning is produced when a viewer look at Schnitts surface. The paper finds that the predominated interpretation has been arbitrarily created out of a specific spectator that acts in a specific context and conclude instead that the predominated interpretation should be understood as a potential interpretation by a potential viewer. The paper continues to create an understanding of Schnitt as a flatbed picture to establish that as a postulate and to use it in the later semiotic dissection of Schnitts surface. The paper then semiotically explains how a viewers meaning is produced by creating a chain with Schnitts photographical fragments and connecting these with syntagmatic relations.

    Viking Eggeling och Diagonalsymfonin: en dematerialisering av konstobjektet2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to study Viking Eggeling’s artwork Diagonal Symphony together with Eggeling’s own art theoretical writings. This method of reading Eggeling’s art theoretical writings with the aim to try and create a deeper understanding of his art and especially Diagonal Symphony is a new approach in Eggeling’s art historical discourse. The thesis starts with a description of how the field of art history has understood Eggeling and his art primarily through art historical research aimed at Hans Richter. I then argue that the method of understanding Eggeling’s art through his own art historical writings is a way to create an independent understanding about Eggeling’s art away from it’s explanatory relation with Richter. To understand and to analyze the relation between Eggeling’s art and art theoretical writings the thesis theoretical viewpoint are a system theoretical one with a special focus on cybernetics and the terms feedback and control. The thesis then establish that Eggeling, in his art and art theoretical writings, tried to compose his own method for creating the form figures we can see appearing in Diagonal Symphony and that this method of creating form was a way for Eggeling to control his creativity and to build up a structured system of forms. The study then concludes with the statement that Eggeling worked with the movie and the scrolls Diagonal Symphony as artistic material formations of a system of forms called Diagonal Symphony and that the system of forms called Diagonal Symphony is the result of Eggeling’s systematic method to generate form in a structured and organised way.

    Navigating story ontospace: Perspective-relative drive and combinatory montage of cinematic content2014In: Expanding Practices in Audiovisual Narrative / [ed] Raivo Kelomees, Chris Hales, Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2014, p. 105-128Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dilemma of designing interactive narrative media is how to empower the participants to tell the author’s story from their own point of view, yet in a structured manner. We propose a solution by means of associating story elements with metadata that constitute a story ontospace. It is defined by multiple narrative dimensions each of which follow one meaningful aspect of the story. The spectator can choose a perspective, which is essentially a prioritization among the narrative dimensions. This is formalized as a projection of the story space onto a uniquely apparent landscape, to which each dimension contributes to the chosen degree. The straightest trajectory through this landscape corresponds to a perspective-relative narrative path that always follows a coherent sequence. This model and its algorithmic implementation will be demonstrated with a database- adaptation of a typical cinema plot. Re-narrated examples generated by the model can be intuitively evaluated by the reader.

    Konst och exil: En undersökning av Shirin Neshats fotografi och videokonst i relation till exil2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Iranian artist Shirin Neshat has been living in self-imposed exile since the late 1970s, as she chose not to return to her home country following the ‘79 Islamic Revolution. Through her works Neshat examines Iran before and after the revolution and follows political and civil transformations through strong photographs of women in her country of birth.  My own use of the term exile deals with the analysis of the state of exile in relation to artistic work as a globalized and underlying motivation for art and artists. The new definition of exile is analyzed in relation with the artist’s photographs and the verbal and visual statements. The verbal and visual photographs in the work of Neshat are related to the term exile through different allegories and metaphors that are to be found in lyricist Rumi’s classical poetry, the Bible and the Quran.

    The artist’s use of the visual photographs where women appear with hijab covering their hair and with weapons in their hands- in some pictures without any audience at all, in others decorated with different calligraphic texts- are combined with the verbal photograph which is created through music (song) and language. The verbal and visual statements complete one another in a united effort to visualize exile as a term, therefore every attempt to separate these two a part, will inevitably deprive the audience of the statement itself, which is in this case the psychoanalytical inner exile. One does not have to be outside her home to feel the state of exile; it can be felt mentally even if one is at home. The inner exile is a global experience. This form of exile is born when the community is categorized from two extremes, with one side of the equation possessing power and the other being classified as weak and ”the other”. I use the status of women in Iran as an example in my investigation, where women are at home but are still very much outside of it, alienated for their gender (sex).

    Drapering av en illusion: En komparativ studie med utgångspunkt i fotografierna av Leila Khaled och Shirin Neshat2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to perform a comparative study between the photography’s of Leila Khaled and Shirin Neshat in order to observe if the woman are able to recede from an conventional formation to become the bearer of the veil and not only reduced to that which

    needs to be concealed. From a feministic perspective I have observed how the symbolic of the veil moulds the woman and how the woman in her context moulds the veil.

    In the description of the news photography of Khaled and the art photography produced by Neshat the mechanisms that lies as a foundation for the modelling of the portraits becomes

    the essays primary entrance. Mechanisms that evolve around the creation of the woman as aconcept, a subject shaped for being looked at and the woman’s self-image through others.

    The textual discourse is visually enhanced through a comparative picture material visually enhanced and explained through photographs by the contemporary artist photographers Cindy Sherman, Catherine Opie, Laurie Simmons, Robert Mapplethorpe and Elin Berge. The visual comparative material also interacts with the essays primary picture material and further expresses the oppression of the woman that occurs irrespective of culture through a patriarch cal gender system.

    Auktoritet i idyllen: Maskuliniteter i Carl Larssons fadersgestalt2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates representations of masculinities and the father figure in the Swedish painter Carl Larsson’s (1864-1919) self-portraits from 1895. The paintings are analysed through the concepts authority, a term closely connected to the father figure, and idyll, a term often used to describe Larsson’s art. Sara Ahmed’s theory to see beyond what is taken for granted, in Queer Phenomenology, is theoretical starting point for the thesis. The analytical method is adopted from Tamar Garb’s Bodies of Modernity. Figures and Flesh in Fin-de-Siécle France. The conclusion is that the masculinities in Larssons’s father figure are coherent with the paterfamilias in the late 1900s, consisting of the provider, the authority figure, and the husband/lover. Furthermore, that the idyll is constructed by those with the authority to construct it, and that the authority thereby is defined by the idyll it constructs.

    Kommunikationens anatomi: för regissör och ensemble2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the frame of Practical knowledge at Södertörn University, Sweden, I have examined my own practical knowledge. The starting-point is what happened during my work as director, when I was rather new in the profession. The studie focuses on what it is that happens when the body communication is not functioning as it should. This essay focuses mainly on physical communication and investigates how the communication worked during this process in which I in the beginning of my carreer led as director at a Public Theatre. My story tells about how I remember the direction process with a Theatre ensemble, framed with communication problems. I call this Directing process 1. The directing work and the actors process work was suffering and an optimal result was not possible to reach. In spite of that, the play was performed and reached a large audience. In a comparative field study  I observed another theatre rehearsal process, interviewed the director and saw the performance. This process worked well. I call this Directing process 2. I have a theoretical discussion with a starting point in communication and theatre literature where I analyze my own understanding of communication and what the communication concept stands for. When traditional communication theory is completed with physical variables, it lightens in a concrete and distinct sense, some essential abilities in the directors work. I reject the assertion that all behavior is communication. I presuppose from the definition that communication builds on someone who sends and someone who confirms.

    I introduce communication theoretical conceptions and six key words as starting-point, for my analysis of physical communication during a process work. I compare the differences in the directors relation to their ensembles. The two theatre directing processes differed in terms of communication in  several crucial points. These differences became a question of vital  importance for a successful and a less successful process. The biggest weakness in process 1 appears to be my own lack of freedom in the way of movement related to the ensemble. It was characterized by a closed body language, difficulties with the listening, and avoiding eye contact. From that I identify the largest problem witch showed to be the lack of confidence between me and the crew. The great assets of the Process 2 was the physical freedom among the bodies that moved in the room, and in relation to each other, while the biggest problem I saw as the lack of clear intentions. The conclusion is that the positions of the bodies related to each other can be a determining factor for successful work together. Moreover that confidence showed up to be the most important communicative reason if these processes succeeded ore failed.

    I gränslandet mellan scen och publik: nycklar till teater - med drama som metod2000Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Teater är konst, och konst ska vara tillgänglig för alla. Men ibland är det svårt att hitta vägar in i teater, att se att teater fyller en funktion och att den har med en själv att göra. Dalateatern har under flera års tid utvecklat en metod för att visa vilken källa teater är att ösa ur och vilka upplevelser man kan få om man tar sig tid att fördjupa teaterbesöket med möten före och efter en föreställning. I mötet får publiken möjlighet att prova på teater som språk, närma sig teman ur pjäser och jämföra med hur det ser ut i den egna verkligheten. I första hand riktar sig metoden mot ungdomar, men även till vixengrupper. Denna bok vänder sig till lärare som vill fördjupa teaterbesöket och till teaterarbetare som vill vidga teaterupplevelsen. Den vänder sig också till dramapedagoger som vill fungera som länk mellan teatern och  skolan/publiken.
