Art in the Periphery : A Study of the Conditions of Cultural production in Värmland, focusing on the Art Project Alma Löv and the artists Broos (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the political ambitions regarding culture in

Värmland, and the situation for artists living on the countryside in Värmland. This means

that the conditions surronding the artists situation will be looked upon. I have chosen the

political document Kulturplanen, created by Region Värmland, as my guideline to what

kind of political view there is on art and cultures role in the region. Furthermore, I have

chosen Pierre Bourdieu`s theory about art as a field controlled by and under the influence

of different rules within the filed itself and what or whom has the power to act and be a

part of the filed. I also use interviews as my method for this study. The purpose is to learn

more about and understand the experiences expressed by the artists themselves. The main

focus of this study is the Art project and Art museum Alma Löv, and the artist Karin and

Marc Broos. A comparison between the political agenda concerning culture in Värmland

and the situation described by the artists themselves is also made. The analysis is held as a

discussion where I look at the different parts and by comparing them create an

understanding regarding the conditions and thee situation for art and culture. I found that

the role and the support given to art and culture in the region often has to do with the idea

of creating side effects rather than supporting art for arts own sake. According to my

analysis there is a danger in losing sight of the values that art itself can offer and many

artists struggle to make it work which I argue has to do with the political ambitions.
