Art activity in the public library with starting point on Government cultural political directives (English)
Abstract [en]

This master thesis is about art activity in the public library. The essay takes its starting point from Government cultural political directives and my purpose has been to study how these are followed up in the municipal level. My survey takes place at the main library of Flen in the county of Södermanland. What I am looking for is, what the art activity looks like, what is decided regarding it and what the strategies are. Furthermore I look into how library visitors understand and participate in the art activity. A parallel survey is done in the part that concerns the library visitors. It consists of studies regarding the art interest of the visitors connected to their social background. This is often taken into account when cultural political surveys are done which regard participation in cultural life. On behalf, of the investigation which concerns the library visitors art interest in relation to their social background, it takes off from the theories of the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, concerning cultural habits in relation to socio- economical factors and lifestyle, but also from Swedish cultural statistic. The methods used to carry through the study are partly interviews with two persons who have responsibility of art activity in the libraries but also in the municipality. The other method used, was an enquiry investigation in which the library visitors were able to have their saying. The background chapter in this master thesis includes three subchapters; cultural political directives according art, definitions of art and the self-governing of municipals. The result shows that in the library of Flen there is an administration and possibility for citizens to participate in an extensive art supply. On the contrary, there is not any real formulated art activity strategy activated. The library visitors are generally pleased with the total art supply at the library. The participation in the art activities at the library and the art interest in general may vary depending on which type of media and on social background. Social background factors such as gender, age, education and occupation do have importance for the interest in art.
