Abstract [sv]

This article juxtaposes two important and highly controversial public events that involved images, the Muhammad caricatures (cardoons published in the Danish newspaper Jyllandsposten 2005) and the images of Jesus in the exhibition called Ecce Homo (by the Swedish photographer Elisabeth Ohlson, first shown in 1998). These controversial events are compared and evaluated in terms of theological implications. Several things connect the two events, especially the public reactions on the images. However, it is argued that the differences are more interesting, since they describe two ways of being related to a religious discourse. The cartoons are drawn "against" Islam, from a position within a Christian cultural context, while the photograps of Ecce Homo form a kind of initiated Christian comment on Christianity (a theological statement), issued from a position within the Christian context. The two artistic acts, the heated debates and the reactions are interpreted in light of this "cultural assymetry", and they are understood as very different in their respective theological significance.
