Abstract [en]

The three silent films Gustaf III och Bellman (1908), En afton hos Gustaf III på Stockholms slottandTvå konungar(1925) are illuminating examples of how the Gustavian period was reinvented, negotiated and visualized at the beginning of the twentieth century. In the article, object-based and visual analysis of the films, together with reception studies, are used to explore the production of period film and the strategies film directors developed in order to mediate a feeling of au-thenticity on screen. These strategies, based on a performative approach to au-thenticity, shared a number of similarities with professional art-historical practice at the turn of the twentieth century. The three case studies reveal not only how the Gustavian period was staged, but also the overlapping professional structures where filmmakers relied on specialists in the organization of material things, for example museum curators and art historians. Through their authority as experts they were able to help authenticate film productions and facilitate access for the film crew to historic sites. Likewise, the production of period films helped shape public history and influenced the management of heritage sites and museums, initiating reconstruction projects, for example.

Abstract [en]

Hur kan kulturmiljövården, själva men också i samarbete med andra aktörer, arbeta för att på olika sätt uppmärksamma, förvalta och förmedla kulturarv som kan upplevas som svåra eller mörka? Ett nystartat projekt vid Uppsala universitet finansierat av Riksantikvarieämbetet undersöker kulturarvsarbetets förutsättningar och hur värdering och urval sker vid omvandlingen av äldre psykiatriska sjukhus. Projektet syftar till att på sikt utveckla metoderna för inkludering av komplexa kulturarv i kulturarvsprocesser kopplade till stadsomvandling. Fokus för studien är Ulleråkersområdet strax söder om Uppsala, ett område som efter drygt 200 år som vårdinstitution i skrivande stund genomgår en snabb omvandling till bostadsområde.

Abstract [en]

 Swedish home interiors in the 1930s and 40s were shaped by a powerful nostalgia as well as modernist ideals of efficiency. This was a contradiction that generated controversies as well as creativity. This paper focuses on debates and negotiations about ideals concerning period furniture, especially relating to production and the concept of authenticity. Further, it explores how these ideals were mediated among professionals and to the individual customer. There were many different types of period furniture available to the customer; antiques, high-class copies, updated and simplified furniture, and industrially produced furniture of varying quality, also flat-pack versions. The specific example discussed in this paper is Gustavian style period furniture. The paper argues that this sometimes-controversial type of furniture was an important component in debates about design at the time, focusing on notions such as taste, honesty, and authenticity. By studying the debates about this alternative category of production, period furniture, this paper wishes to contribute with a complementary approach, which acknowledges a complexity found in the material from the 1930s and 40s.

Abstract [en]

Scenographic and artistic interventions and interactions have gained in significance within the fields of exhibition and museum design since the 1990s. This article specifically focuses on historic house museums, and how they use their theatrical and scenographic assets in order to recharge and reinvent themselves. The author discusses the different aims and tasks these interventions and interactions take on, and the attitudes that make them happen. Further, the author argues that the field of art history should address these changes in museological practice, and should investigate new possible readings of the historic house, the objects within, and artistic interventions. This would also show the relevance of art history to the field of critical heritage studies in a period that is characterized by the heritage boom and the new experience industry.
