    1% love and devotion på Ulleråkers sjukhus2006Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Institutionen befinner sig i kris. Det gäller den politiska institutionen, den juridiska, den sociala, den polisiära, skolan, pensionssystemet, fritidsgårdarna... Och det gäller i högsta grad konstinstitutionen och vårdinstitutionen.Psykos- och rehabiliteringsavdelningarna 109 och 110 på Ulleråkers sjukhus ska renoveras. Enligt riktlinjer ska 1 % av byggkostnaden avsättas till konstnärlig gestaltning. I detta fall innebär det 210 000 kronor. Konstnärsgruppen love and devotion tar sig an det konstnärliga utsmyckningsuppdraget genom att ställa vårdmiljön snarare än konstobjektet i centrum.Inom den psykiatriska vården har antalet vårdplatser drastiskt minskat den senaste 10-årsperioden. Samtidigt är den fysiska vårdmiljön undermålig och avhandlas i stort sett aldrig. Utifrån en mängd olika perspektiv diskuterar denna bok frågor kring institutionens kris, liksom vårdens och konstens villkor i dagens samhälle.

    DESIGN ACT Socially and politically engaged design today – critical roles and emerging tactics’ presents and discusses contemporary design practices that engage with political and societal issues. Since 2009, the Iaspis project DESIGN ACT has been highlighting and discussing practices, in which designers have been engaging critically as well as practically in such issues. Itself an example of applied critical thinking and experimental tactics, the process behind the DESIGN ACT project is considered as a curatorial, participatory and open-ended activity. DESIGN ACT has developed through a website with an online archive; public seminars; presentations and installations.

    Arkitektur och konsumtion: Reyner Banham och utbytbarhetens estetik2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The dissertation analyses the relation between architecture, design and consumption according to Peter Reyner Banham’s notion of an “aesthetics of expendability”. This issue is studied through such source materials as texts, buildings, competition entries and exhibitions produced from the early fifties to the early sixties. Banham’s perspective on consumption and architecture is subjective, which makes the notion of a “free consumer” central to his ideas. From his viewpoint, commercial popular culture, in contrast to the ideal of “good taste”, opens up for a “democratic design”.

    Through relating the “aesthetics of expendability” to the shift in commodity production in the postwar period, the thesis demonstrates how Banham’s notions can be seen as a consequence of the logic of consumption. Jean Baudrillard’s notion of a system of objects forms the theoretical framework for the dissertation. Baudrillard perceives of consumption as an ideology, as the overarching structure, which serves as a complement to Banham’s point of view.

    The re-organization of mass production signifies a shift from mass consumption to a differentiation of objects, which means that the individual consumer becomes the object of focus. Banham observes these changes early on, and his ideas can be said to have four themes: the shift in focus from the object to the subject, the notion of a non-hierarchic aesthetic field, a change in the professional role of the architect and a shift in the organization of architecture. The dissertation shows how these themes construct a complex web in relation to architecture, and how aesthetics works as a link between personal desires and the objective system of production.

    Critique: building appraisals Third-Way architecture: Stockholm Globe City2016In: Journal of Architecture, ISSN 1360-2365, E-ISSN 1466-4410, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 118-141Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish twentieth- century architecture has almost become synonymous with modernism and 'the architecture of the Welfare state'. Far less is known about the architectural conceptions that came to pass in relation to societal changes at the beginning of the 1980s, which has been termed 'the end of the Welfare state or the Third Way'. Taking the Stockholm Globe Arena (1982-1989) and the concomitant building complex Globe City as a starting point, the article discusses Third-Way ideology and its relationship to architecture. The hypothesis is that architecture can be seen as a contributing agent in shaping the ideological shift that re-arranges late-twentieth century society, but also, that architecture responds to these shifts. The article focuses on two themes. First, how conceptions of the new public good were carried through and how new relationships between private and public changed the agenda for planning and building. These transformations are investigated in relation to the production process, whilst the second theme, the capitalisation of the social domain, is analysed in relation to architecture as a cultural and material object.

    Designing the 'Consumer in Infinity': The Swedish Cooperative Union's New Consumer Policy, c. 19792012In: Scandinavian Design: Alternative Histories / [ed] Kjetil Fallan, Oxford: Berg Publishers, 2012Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay outlines the development of a new strategy worked out by the Swedish Cooperation Union in relation to governmental consumption policies in the late 60s and early 70s. In these years the citizen became institutionalized as a consumer through the politicization of consumption, but this is also the period when new strategies of marketing, commercials and PR were evolving which could in fact be seen as the starting point for a more liberal consumer society in the 80s. This development will be discussed through the story of two large campaigns made by the Swedish Cooperation Union: the introduction of the “meubius strip” as the new image in 1967, and the introduction of the basic wardrobe 1972. Being both a producer of design and a regulator of how to consume design the Cooperation clearly spells out strategies for designing products as well as consumers.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ett antal skilda läsningar presenteras av både vård- och konstinstitutionen i dagens Sverige. Genom den lokala historien kan vi följa det fysiska vårdrummet utveckling och hur institutionen alltmer har förlorat i betydelse. Essän lyfter fram love and devotions projekt utifrån frågeställningen om tingen "värde" och hur en förskjutning av status gett insyn i en vanligtvis mycket sluten verklighet. Är det först när vardagen blir "konst" som livsmiljön på en sluten psykiatrisk avdelning kan få ett eget värde?

    Abstract [sv]

    Stortorget i Kalmar utgör ett av de viktigaste projekten i moderna svensk stadsförnyelse. I ett unikt samarbete mellan Statens konstråd och Kalmar kommun möjliggjordes en konstnärlig och arkitektonisk omdaning av den kulturhistoriskt mycket värdefulla torgmiljön. ”Konsten och arkitekturen fick en central uppgift att återföra energi och mening till Stortorget, som en slags omprogrammering, uppdatering eller förskjutning av torgets fysiska uttryck och betydelsebärande nivåer.” (Helena Mattsson, ur förordet till boken Kalmar Stortorg.)

    Konstnären Eva Löfdahl och arkitekten Adam Caruso/Caruso St John Architects, Catharina Gabrielsson, arkitekt och dåvarande projektledare på Statens konstråd, tillsammans med Mats Haglund, landskapsarkitekt och ansvarig projektledare i Kalmar kommun, utgjorde projektets nyckelpersoner utan vilka det slutliga resultatet aldrig hade kommit till stånd.

    I boken om Kalmar Stortorg beskrivs, kommenteras och belyses projektet av dessa viktiga aktörer. Fotografier av Hélène Binet och ett arkiv med rikt bildmaterial ger ytterligare perspektiv på omdaningen av Kalmar Stortorg.

    Abstract [en]

    In much recent theory, the media are described as ephemeral, ubiquitous, and de-localized. Yet the activity of modern media can be traced to spatial centers that are tangible enoughsome even monumental. This book offers multidisciplinary and historical perspectives on the buildings of some of the worlds major media institutions. Paradoxically, as material and aesthetic manifestations of mediated centers"" of power, they provide sites to the siteless and solidity to the immaterial. The authors analyse the ways that architectural form and organization reflect different eras, media technologies, ideologies, and relations with the public in media houses from New York and Silicon Valley to London, Moscow, and Beijing.

    Revisiting Swedish Postmodernism: Gendered Architecture and Other Stories2016In: Konsthistorisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0023-3609, E-ISSN 1651-2294, Vol. 85, no 1, p. 109-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The years around 1980 contained dynamic architectural discourse in Swedish history covering contradictory ideas all sharing the critique of functionalism. Revisiting the discussions today implies a reconsideration of the historiographical self-conception, the notion of a local history and its relations to a broader international stream of ideas. Two trajectories can be distinguished in this discussion. The first stresses formal expressions - like pastiche, play with historical elements, individualized forms - while the other focuses on social organizations, democratic processes and labour conditions. Through tracing the pre-history of these trajectories the intention is to show how aesthetic qualities overlap with politico-economical developments and strategies of democracy and user participation. The article has two purposes: the first is to revisit the late 1970s and the early 1980s to outline the early debates on postmodernism and the second is to shift gender and discuss the feminist movement, and its theoretical and practical implications. Through an inquiry into this turning point in Swedish architecture the article aims at reframing, or broadening, the postmodern narrative as well as reinterpreting the local discussions in relation to the global. The discourse of women's liberation, as well as other emancipatory movements, had a major impact on the postmodern movement at large and it is remarkable that this side of postmodernism is not yet fully formulated in relation to architectural history.
