Abstract [sv]

Öyvind Fahlströms berömda manifest för konkret poesi «HÄTILA RAGULPR PÅ FÅTSKLIABEN» (1954) skrevs i en reaktion på diktarkonferensen i Sigtuna den 10–12 april 1953, som blev det incitament han behövde för att skriva om ett förmodligen redan påbörjat program till ett manifest. Det svenska litterära fältet existerade helt oberoende av den transnationella avantgardeströmning han promoverar i sin estetik och konferensen utgjorde därför enbart accidens för manifestets tillkomst. En diskussion av del ett med dess förlöjligande av den bidrar därmed inte med någon kunskap om manifestets essens: dess program. Med en bättre förståelse av relationen mellan Sigtunakonferensen och Fahlströms manifest skapas en mer rättvisande bild av femtiotalet, samtidigt som man i framtida forskning kan fokusera manifestets tonvikt på processualitet och performativitet.

Abstract [en]

Öyvind Fahlström’s famous manifesto for concrete poetry HÄTILA RAGULPR PÅ FÅTSKLIABEN.

(1954) was written as a reaction to the authors conference in Sigtuna 10–12 April 1953, which was the

incentive he needed to rewrite a program that had probably already been started into a manifesto.

However, Fahlström’s own interests must be subsumed under a transnational avant-garde aesthetics. The

Swedish literary field existed in parallel to the international avant-garde movements that he promoted

and that in principle occurred independently of the Swedish field. The conference was therefore only an

accidence for the advent of the manifesto, and a discussion of part one with its ridicule will contribute no

knowledge about its essence: his program. With a better understanding of the relation between the Sigtuna

conference and Fahlström’s manifesto, a more accurate view of the Swedish 1950s can be established,

at the same time as future research can focus the essence of the manifesto: its processuality and performativity.

Abstract [en]

Avant-garde aesthetic movements react on and appropriate new technological media in a process of breaking down the boundaries between different media and different “arts," in an attempt to generate meaning from the sheer materiality of the artwork. Avant-garde artworks will therefore by necessity be marked by media in different ways, at the same time as these art forms are processual, performative and transgressive. One of the prime Swedish examples of this avant-garde strategy is Ake Hodell’s many realizations of his manuscript Lågsniff. The manuscript, written in 1963, was in the form of a text-sound-composition, which means that Lågsniff, already in this form, took many configurations with a plurality of genres and media modalities involved. Later the manuscript was realized as a series of performances, a TV-film, a book, and in 2002 as a DVD. For such a collection of art works, I would like to suggest the term “intermedial cluster.” The point of departure for my discussion is the DVD, a remediation of the TV- film from 1966, and I will focus on two of the juxtaposed discourses in the cluster that this DVD represents: the package tour and warfare, and on two thematic foci in the film: media and memory, and man as automaton.
