The living room : Technology in focus? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Under 1900-talet kom det tekniska föremål som till exempel tv-apparaten och radion. Tillsammans förändrade de tekniska föremålen hemidealen och hur möblering såg ut. Genom denna förändring förändrades även sättet man umgicks, möblerade och använde sina hem. Finrummet förändrades från ett rum som tidigare hade använts vid få tillfällen till att vara ett rum där familjer och vänner skulle umgås. Vardagsrummet blev nya benämningen och blev ett centrum i hemmet där man använde tekniska föremål som grammofonen, radion och inte minst tv:n. Frågorna som behandlas i denna uppsats är vilka tekniska föremål som fanns i hemmet under 1950-1970-talet samt hur Nordiska museets utställningar förhåller sig till hur det faktiskt såg ut i hemmen. Kandidatuppsatsen ska behandla de svenska hemmen utifrån ett digitalt museum som i kandidatuppsatsen är digitaltmuseum.se. Genom digitaltmuseum.se ska jag undersöka hur svenskarna använde och inredde sina vardagsrum under åren 1950-1970. Resultatet var att den tekniska utvecklingen inte var så synlig på bilderna från digitalt museum utan att möblers placering i hemmet förändrades och att det inte finns en tydlig förändring i form av teknik även om grammofoner, radioapparater och ett fåtal tv-apparater finns på ett fåtal bilder.

Abstract [en]

During the 20th century technological objects such as television and radio appeared and changed the home ideals. These changed the way people socialized, furnished and used their homes. In addition to changing the design and the appliances of the kitchen, electricity also transformed the sitting room. The living room became the center of the home where technological objects such as the gramophone, the radio and especially the television were being used. The issues addressed in this paper include what people’s homes looked like and how the Swedes related to the ideals based on a study of photographs from a digital archive. Did all Swedes have technology as the main focus of their homes or did it take a few years before all Swedes embraced these innovations? This bachelor thesis deals with the Swedish homes based on an analysis of photographs from the digital archive digitaltmuseum.se. Through the analysis I will be able to see how the Swedes used and furnished their living rooms during the time period 1950-1970. The main focus of this thesis is to see if the classic objects that are said to have changed the way people decorated the living room existed in actual homes, or if they are part of an ideal image of how living rooms were portrayed and used.  The result was that the technological progress was not very visible on the photos from digital museum except the fact that the furniture's placement in the home changed and that there is not a clear change in the form of technology although gramophones, radios and a few televisions are visible on a few images.
