“Dirty, Dangerous and Disastrous”: Contradictions and Representations of Violence
2004 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper is about silence, producing borders, violent rhetoric and

conflicting worldviews. It is an attempt to unveil the conditions behind

cultural achievements and the use of powerful procedures to maintain order in

European car industries. Violence is occurring in a zero time, in the same way

the Freudian tradition suggests that words such as “near” and “far” would be

the same, pronounced with different emphasis. The discussion is based on

field notes from three major car producers in Sweden, Czech Republic and

United Kingdom.

The break down of class interests became a consequence of the new economy. The

revolutionary theme, the efforts of starting a new era by image making, with

different political approvals and with a focus on loyalty, created open spaces

of experiment. There were no obligation to take history into account;

traditional class patterns were handed over to history. The culturalisation of

everyday life became a dominant view on diversity and individuality.
