Islands, culture, and cultural production on an island

Abstract [en]

This paper deals with aspects of culture and cultural production in the island of Gotland, in the middle of the Baltic Sea. After a short introduction to Gotland, I will explore some of the key aspects that make this island stand out as different, and thereby constitute a core of its islandness. In the concluding part I will present a current cultural project, intended to serve as a kind of laboratory test of the content and scope of cultural resources and complexity of the island. In the presentation ‘culture’ is used in two meanings: as a society’s collective understandings, meanings, ideas and values, and as art, literature, music. Also ‘island’ is used in two meanings: as objects in the real world, and as representations, images, conceptions, a phenomenon of the mind. The project draws on and underlines the close interaction between these different meanings.
