How public art is perceived by the towns people in Borås (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis explores how public art is received by the general public in Borås, Sweden. As a point of departure it was assumed that a study of the local papers would offer an accurate insight in to the debate of public art. Hence, press clippings were chosen as primary source material together with the works of art. The questions addressed in the study are: what is written in the local daily press about public art? Who writes in or makes statements to the local dailies about public art? Textual analysis is the predominant method employed while hermeneutics is the underlying theory. At a preliminary glance at the material it became evident that only three works of art in Borås: Knallen, Folktalaren and Två Vindar in the last fifty years had attracted enough attention to warrant a debate. Firstly, as regards Folktalaren, little information in the press was given about the general publics opinion of it; the reports were devoted to a factual description of it. The second sculpture, Två Vindar was shattered to pieces by unknown vandals but this event did not give much resonance in the debate columns. The debate concerning the third sculpture, Knallen, has surpassed the other debates in intensity and number of press clippings. The Knallen debate has centred on the appropriate placement of the sculpture. By contrast to the luke-warm debate in Borås is contrasted to the debate climate in Holstebro, Denmark.
