Abstract [en]

This essay examines the relationships between the different elements in Lisa Jonasson’s collage Existentiell Progg #6 and her very detailed technique. The essay has as its aims to understand and analyze both the details and the wholeness of the artwork and to try to put the collage in an art historical context. The thesis finds that Existentiell Progg #6 has a connection to the imagery of Africa and other collage artist such as Hannah Höch and Nancy Spero, which also gives the paper a perspective of feminism in the arts. The paper continues to create an understanding for the collage work by putting it in to Theodor Adorno’s theories about nature, the human being and the animal kingdom. The paper then comes to the conclusion that many of the elements in Existentiell Progg #6 are a part of its underlying meaning and purpose.
