    Game Save: Game Save Incorporation in Game Design through a MDA Analysis2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about save systems and will analyze save functions in various games. Save systems in games are usually blamed for harming the suspension of disbelief as it is an act taking place outside the game and should only be used for its intended purpose: letting the players store their game data, and progress whenever they need.

    The game save function developed as rapid leaps of technology were made, with the beginning era of home consoles and home computers allowing players to spend more time playing, creating a demand for longer play sessions in games which lead to a need of methods for storing game data.

    The analysis of save systems is carried out in this paper by using MDA Framework (Mechanics, Dynamics, Aesthetics), a tool used for documenting game design. This framework can be used to analyze a game from a designer‟s or player‟s perspective. By reversing the framework ADM (Aesthetics, Dynamics and Mechanics) one can analyze the user experience, which is how the player perceives the game‟s aesthetics to be, depending on the dynamics and mechanics.

    This analysis aims to provide knowledge of how consistency in game design and the save system can be used to create a cohesive game world that facillitates the player's experience and immersion.

    The Jewish-Christian Encounter in Medieval Preaching2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book explores the complexity of preaching as a phenomenon in the medieval Jewish-Christian encounter. This was not only an "encounter" as physical meeting or confrontation (such as the forced attendance of Jews at Christian sermons that took place across Europe), but also an "imaginary" or theological encounter in which Jews remained a figure from a distant constructed time and place who served only to underline and verify Christian teachings. Contributors also explore the Jewish response to Christian anti-Jewish preaching in their own preaching and religious instruction.

    More Than Meets the Eye. "Castles and Manor Houses in Sweden" Revisited2016In: Konsthistorisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0023-3609, E-ISSN 1651-2294, Vol. 85, no 1, p. 97-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The landmark book series Slott och herresaten i Sverige (transl. Castles and Manor Houses in Sweden), published in 1966-1971 by Allhems forlag, is still today considered the most important art historical reference work on Swedish manor buildings and country houses. The 18 volumes seem to present a near complete picture of the nation's rich heritage of manor buildings, combining the comprehensive and topographically organized guide book with the thoroughness of the architectural monograph. This paper will address the more problematic aspects of the book series, its critical role in the writing of a Swedish architectural history and in shaping a national country house narrative. While each volume provides an authoritative and concise overview of the history, ownership and stylistic development of the most significant manor buildings in the province - their architecture, interiors, gardens and collections - the presentation with its general descriptions, formal analysis and neutral tone omits a more in-depth analysis of these complex environments as well as underlying social, political and economic aspects. The descriptions have, in a sense, been working against the depth of historical understanding and the identification of more complex networks. As a consequence, the Swedish manor house is presented as a continuous and self-contained "treasure house", with the critical perspectives and broader European context very seldom present in the characterizations.

    Who's that girl?: Skivbolagskultur och dess påverkan på Robyn2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

    Erik Ageberg: Who's that girl? – Skivbolagskultur och dess påverkan på Robyn. Uppsala Universitet: Institutionen för Musikvetenskap. C-uppsats, 2006.

    Robyn has been one of the most successful Swedish pop stars during the last decade. She has during these ten last years gone from being a young star to being the owner of her own record label, Konichiwa Records. As a result of her last record she became an artist, highly respected by her fellow artists and the audience. The aim of this essay is to discuss the term artistic freedom in the light of Robyn's career. The organization of the music industry is the starting point of the discussion. The way the record companies create their artists are linked to the demands of the public regarding the music they wish to purchase. Accordingly, the artistic freedom is limited by the public in an indirect manner. When artists refer to artistic freedom, or lack of it, it is the author's opinion that it should be understood as a confusion of conceptual arguments. The claim of this thesis is that as the artist refers to the negligence of artistic freedom he or she is in fact targeting on the organizational culture of the music company.

    Sara Wennerberg-Reuter: att vara kvinna och kompositör kring sekelskiftet 1800 / 19002013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents an example of the musical life of a female composer active in Sweden during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Through a case study on composer Sara Wennerberg-Reuter (1875-1959), the essay contributes information to her biography, which had been lacking specific details.

    Wennerberg-Reuter's biography has been discussed regarding traditional roles of women in music, her relationship to her own artistry and other active women composers, and finally the contemporary reception of Wennerberg-Reuter as a legitimate composer. Aesthetical theories prevalent during Wennerberg-Reuter’s life has been applied in these discussions, such as those presented by Citron, Öhrström and Hanson, combined with Citron's additional theories considering masculine/feminine elements in the musical approach.

    The main conclusions reached regarding the specific conditions enabling a professional status as a composer and woman in Sweden during the given time are;

    a) the liberal permission by the family to pursue higher education in composing, since this was in opposition to the traditions of the time.

    b) the access to a network of musically active women, from which a sense of being part of a female community can be created.

    c) the acceptance from musical institutions such as higher educations, composer's societies and media critics.

    Formträdgården – befriad från politisk skuld och kognitiv skam: Ikonologisk analys av rehabträdgården i Alnarp2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats studerar rehabiliteringsträdgården i Alnarp via Erwin Panofskysikonologiska metod. Rehabiliteringsträdgården är skapad utifrån undersökningar av människorsföreställningar om natur- och kulturupplevelser som de anser positiva för hälsa och välbefinnande.Trädgården är uppdelad i åtta olika kategorier som är kopplade till graden av informell respektiveformell design, det finns också mellan dem gränsland som har en mer flytande stil. Uppsatsen harbegränsats till att avhandla två av de åtta kategorierna, skogsträdgården som är mer naturlik, ochentréträdgården som är formell. Syftet med uppsatsen är koppla samman de båda delträdgårdarnamed stilhistoriska förebilder inom trädgårdskonsten genom att valet av former och materialjämförs med varandra och med historiska trädgårdar, liksom att jämföra de båda delträdgårdarnamed andra konstnärliga manifestationer, t ex måleri och arkitektur. Slutligen är syftet att i denikonologiska intuitiva syntesen undersöka trädgårdarnas idémässiga ursprung. Resultatet visar attträdgårdarna har tydliga referenser till sina respektive genrer, den italienska formträdgården ochden engelska landskapsparken. Skillnaderna finns även representerade i andra konstnärligaverksamheter. Den syntetiska intuitionen som vilar på författarens kunskaper och erfarenheter,länkar de olika trädgårdsidealen till politiska ideologier och kognitiva strukturer.

    Hundertwassers arkitektur: att vara eller inte vara2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats studerar Friedensreich Hundertwassers (1928-2000) organiska/vegetativaarkitektur, begränsad till utvalda signifikativa arkitekturelement på fyra olika bildnivåer, frånöversiktsbild till en avgränsad del av ett mindre utrymme. Den byggnad som avses är kvarteretDie Grüne Zitadelle i Magdeburg, Tyskland. Uppsatsen är tudelad i den meningen att den utgårifrån nämnd arkitektur och analyseras/syntetiseras enligt Erwin Panofskys ikonologiska metod. Urdenna första analys framvaskas relevanta dikotomier, en metod som i sin ursprungliga form ärHeinrich Wölfflins komparativa. Dock jämförs inte Hundertwassers verk genom epokskiljandestilfaktorer, utan genom jämförande med en konstnär som enligt tidigare forskning anses varanärliggande Hundertwasser. Denne arkitekt är Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926), verket för analysen ärCasa Milá i Barcelona i Spanien. Syftet med uppsatsen är att genom dikotomierna experimentelltjämföra arkitekterna och deras verk, och forskningsinriktningen ligger i att urröna omdikotomierna kan blottlägga insikter om skillnader och/eller likheter som annars kunde varit svåraatt identifiera. Resultatet visar att arkitekterna tolkat filosofin på delvis lika och delvis olika sätt.Sammanfattande har Hundertwasser ett betydligt mer individualiserat formspråk avseende designifikativa arkitekturelementen. Oavsett om den dubbla metoden tillför nya kunskaper eller inte,torde dikotomierna kunna fungera som stöd för arkitekturanalyser och som hjälp vidkonstreflektion.

    Vad är det för skillnad på en pinne?: Ikonologisk analys av rondellkonstverket "Vridning" av Anders Lönn2007Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen beskriver konstverket ”Vridning” av Kalmarkonstnären Anders Lönn. På den pre-ikonografiskanivån beskrivs verket i avseende på vad som är möjligt att konkret uppfatta med ögat, både gällande material och form på den plats där det står. På samma nivå beskrivs också vad som finns i konstverkets omedelbara närhet geografiskt, samt Kalmars lokalisering i förhållande till konstverket och regionen. Verket är placerat i den så kallade Karlsrorondellen strax söder om Kalmar. Rondellen är en punkt där tre huvudvägar och en lokal väg sammanstrålar. Konstverket reser sig 17 meter över marken och har verkat provokativt på vissa individer. ”Vridning” är välkänt i Kalmar och går i folkmun under beteckningen ”pinnen”. Materialet är trä och även marken i rondellen runt konstverket ingår i konstverkets idé.

    På den ikonografiska nivån går analysen djupare och avser att besvara frågor som: Vad i Kalmar eller andra platser kan ha inspirerat konstnären. I generell mening; vad i traktens natur och kultur kan verka inspirerande för vilken som helst konstnär. Vår perception orsakar att vi drar till oss idéer i vår omgivning som sedan blandas och omtolkas. För en konstnär manifesteras resultatet av denna process genom olika konstverk. Uppsatsens ambition för denna nivå är således att knyta konstverket till konstnärens medvetna och omedvetna inspirationskällor i den lokala/regionala kulturen, vilken har stora delar gemensam med den nationella. Rubriken Material & Dimensioner relaterar till trämaterialet och de dimensioner som är förknippade med lokala/regionala/nationella byggnadsverk och skepp. Rubriken Form& Idé relaterar till formen i universell mening, d v s vilka andra konstverk runt om i världen som inspirerat både tidigare och senare konstnärer. Detta knyts till idén om hur formen påverkar betraktaren att uppfatta en rörelse i konstverket.

    Den ikonologiska nivån ligger än djupare i den tidigare. Med hjälp av abstraktioner som beskriver individuella, mellanmänskliga och kollektiva skeenden och föreställningar avseendeklass, genus, kommunikation, möten, kopplade till material, form, idé och plats föreslås olika objekt som inspirationskällor. Förförståelsen jämförs med texter om t ex konstruktivism, den betydelsebärande skillnaden, gruppdynamik osv. Rubriken Material & Form relaterar tillmaterialet som klassbärare och varaktighet, formen som genusbetydande och avantgardistiska referenser. Rubriken Plats & Idé behandlar vägarnas och vägskälens betydelse för människors möten och kommunikation, liksom hur en plats kan bära individers identitet och meningsföreställningar.

    Diskussionen landar i att ett konstverk som visar upp sig offentligt, utan att människor aktivtbehöver välja om de vill ta del av det inte, uppenbarligen kan verka mer provocerande än institutionell konst. Det kan också sammanbinda en lokalbefolkning, utgöra en del av dess identitet. En handfull skulle kanske fortfarande lättat andas ut om det plockades ned, men de flesta skulle nog ändå sörja ett förlorat sjö- och landmärke som tillhör kollektivet.

    Landskapets röster: Studier i Elias Martins bildvärld2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is about the Swedish landscape painter Elias Martin (1739-1818). The main interest is in his depictions of nature, landscape images and topographical views. Chronologically, it covers the period 1760 to 1810. The first part puts Martin's artistic achievement in a historiographic perspective and presents an overview of his artistic career - from his birthplace Stockholm to Paris and from there to London, where he successfully established himself on the English art scene in the 1770s. Returning to his native Sweden in 1780, he soon emerged as the country's leading landscapist of the period.

    In the second part of the thesis, a study is presented of Martin's relationship to the art markets of England and Sweden, and in the third an attempt is made, through the medium of a specific genre of Swedish eighteenth-century literature - travel writings - to gain a deeper insight into the attitudes and values of the period. Here, the focus of interest is on different ways of viewing nature and landscape art in Sweden in the late eighteenth century. On the basis of this discussion, an attempt is made to reconstruct a Swedish 'period eye', specific to the upper-class culture of the Gustavian age.

    These discussions of the importance of the market and of a Swedish period eye form the basis for an answer to the overarching question of this thesis, concerning the relationship between Martin's images and contemporary perceptions of nature. From the conclusions drawn, it becomes clear that different ways of relating to landscape existed side by side. The attitudes discernible in the artist's pictures, as in the travel writings of the period, are diverse and contradictory, complicating an understanding of the eighteenth century's view of nature as something uniform. Elias Martin's art thus illuminates the many vantage points and variations in the Gustavian era's feeling for nature.

    "… kunn’ I dock så wackert låta …": Uppsala Akademiska Kammarkör 50 år2007Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A 50th anniversary portrait of the artistically ambitious Academy Chamber Choir of Uppsala is drawn by a variety of authors: choristers, listeners and musicologists,all familiar with choral singing and choral music.

    The characteristics of the choir repertoire are extensively described by conductors, composers, Swedish and foreign soloists and instrumentalists. The choir has commissioned and delivered first performances of works by a number of Swedish composers.

    It can also be noticed how economic and organizational changes in society influence the motility of choristers, the number of performances in concert halls, churches as well as other circumstances and possibly also the very choral sound.

    The choir is invited to choral festivals, goes on tours in Europe and North America and hosts visiting choirs. The choir can also be heard on records.

    Indoor hygrothermal condition and user satisfaction in naturally ventilated historic houses in temperate humid continental climate around the Baltic Sea2016In: Architectural Science Review, ISSN 0003-8628, E-ISSN 1758-9622, Vol. 59, no 1, p. 53-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Indoor climate and user satisfaction were analysed by field measurement and a questionnaire in 67 traditional rural houses in Estonia, Finland and Sweden. Our findings showed that the indoor climate in all the investigated historic rural houses needs improvement. The room temperature was mainly too low during winter. Leaky houses had also a larger vertical temperature difference. The relative humidity in the unheated and periodically heated houses was high during winter and caused risk for mould growth in 17% of all houses and 33% of unheated houses. Significant differences of indoor humidity loads in different houses were revealed depending on the living density and usage profile. During the winter period, the design value of moisture excess was 4-5g/m(3) and the average moisture load was 2-3.5g/m(3). The indoor humidity load in historic houses was similar to that in modern houses. The results of the questionnaire showed that main problems were related to unstable or too low temperatures. At the same time, inhabitants rated the overall indoor climate as healthy and no statistically important relations were found between average indoor temperature and complaints about too cold or too warm indoor temperatures.

    Renovation alternatives to improve energy performance of historic rural houses in the Baltic Sea region2014In: Energy and Buildings, ISSN 0378-7788, E-ISSN 1872-6178, Vol. 77, p. 58-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses renovation alternatives to improve energy performance of historic rural houses in three countries (Estonia, Finland, Sweden) in the Baltic Sea region (cold climate). The study was conducted by a combination of field measurements and simulations. Indoor climate, typical houses and structures as well as the current condition and need for renovation were determined by field measurements. Based on field measurements, indoor climate and energy simulation models were validated and used to calculate energy use for different renovation measures. Energy renovation packages were calculated for different scenarios (minimal influence on the appearance of the house, improvement of thermal comfort, improvement of building service systems) for different energy saving levels. The analysis showed that the improvement of building service systems and the energy source holds the largest energy saving potential. The building envelope of old rural houses needs improvement also due to high thermal transmittance and air leakage. The insulation of the external wall has the largest single energy saving potential of the building's envelope. The results show how energy savings depend on energy saving targets, typology of the building, thermal transmittance of original structures, and building service systems. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.

    Animation through Body Language: A study using the fictional character Mokhtar2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Learning to read body language is something we do throughout our whole life. It is a complex non-verbal language that can express more than words. In this study we investigate the possibility to use only body language to portray emotions to the viewer. In a background of a game project we have used a character that has his face covered, therefore, facial expression is not visible during the online survey, which we used as a method for our investigation. As a foundation we have created four character animations to portray anger, frustration, exhaustion and hurt. To find the answer if it is possible to recognize those five emotions in the character animations survey, participants were obligated to name the emotion expressed on each of the video clips. The results of this study show that the characters body language could be sufficient to portray those five emotions. However, it was concluded that body language could be enough to represent the character's emotional state to the viewer; but by including facial expressions we could help to portray the emotion even further.

    Scripts of Kingship: Essays on Bernadotte and Dynastic Formation in an Age of Revolution2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    When French Marshal Jean Baptiste Bernadotte was elected heir to the Swedish Throne in 1810, a dramatic dynastic venture commenced. In an age of revolutions, marked by political as well as cultural upheavals, the commoner from Pau was transformed into King Charles XIV John and the head of a new royal dynasty in Sweden and Norway. Although fraught with challenges, the venture proved successful. As restoration set in, and the Napoleonides of Europe fell one after the other, Bernadotte held fast, and today the dynasty is approaching its bicentennial on the throne.

    In nine illustrated essays, the formation of a dynasty is explored as it unfolded in media such as ceremonies, spatial arrangements, opera performances, publicity and panegyrics.

    Rak hård pop - Mottagandet i svensk press av The Jimi Hendrix Experiences konserter 19672005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Erik Andersson: RAK HÅRD POP: Mottagandet i svensk press av The Jimi Hendrix Experiences konserter 1967. Uppsala universitet: Institutionen för musikvetenskap uppsats för 60 p., 2005

    Jimi Hendrix var en komplex artist med en karismatisk personlighet. Han var även en skicklig musiker och kompositör. Dessutom var han en färgad rockartist som främst lockade till sig en vit publik. Det fanns med andra ord mycket för en svensk journalist att lägga vikt vid. Syftet med den här uppsatsen är således att beskriva hur Hendrix mottogs av Svenska dags- och kvällstidningar under turnéerna i maj respektive september 1967. Utifrån detta källmaterial fann jag flera intressanta reflektioner.

    Bandet Experience med Hendrix i spetsen verkade redan i och med första Sverigeturnén i maj vara en omåttligt populär grupp. Anledningar till denna stora popularitet kan spåras ända tillbaka till The Jubilee Singers 100 tidigare.

    De svenska recensenterna lade stor vikt vid att beskriva scenshowen med det akrobatiska gitarrspelet. När det gäller hur musiken beskrivs finns två grundattityder. Den ena utrycker att bandet spelar en enkel musik för unga människor. Den andra uttrycker att bandet spelar musik på hög nivå och Hendrix beskrivs som en ljudkonstnär som skapar utomjordiska klanger.

    Abstract [en]

    Erik Andersson: Utanför Murarna: En studie av Ulf Lundells och rockkulturens outsiderpositionering. Uppsala universitet: Institutionen för musikvetenskap, 2007.

    The main aim of this essay is to show how the artist Ulf Lundell presents himself as someone with an outsider's view of life. This also includes showing that this aspiration is a common one among artists in the rock culture.

    The aim was reached by studying texts, lyrics, interviews, articles of and with Lundell and then applying theories about authenticity and performativity on this material. In order to put this in a context I looked at a similar material but with a much broader perspective, artists from different countries, genres and eras is here included.

    The conclusion of this study is that a kind of norm system in the rock culture has developed and Lundell is acting accordingly to these rules. The outsider position has become an important ingredient in Lundell's persona and this position can also be seen as a given norm in the wider context. However, the expectations from fans and critics of which kind of Lundell they want may look different and the norms can be broken.

    I Hyalta gastars sällskap: om konstvetenskapens diskriminering av kvinnliga målare ur den arbetande klassen på 1700- och 1800-talen2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen läggs ett intersektionellt perspektiv på konsthistorien. Det sker genom en belysning av det sydsvenska bonadsmåleriets undanskymda plats i allmänhet och de kvinnliga bonadsmålarnas osynliga roll i synnerhet.

    Uppsatsen består av fyra kapitel. I det första studerar jag den svenska konsthistorieskrivningen i tre historiografiska undersökningar: först en narrativ, sedan en kvantitativ och sist en komparativ diskussion av några historiografiska verk. Min huvudsakliga slutsats är att klassanalys lyser med sin frånvaro, ordet klass och framför allt arbetarklass nämns förhållandevis sällan. Genusstrukturer analyseras i varierande grad och på olika sätt medan etnicitet mest omnämns som en kanoniserad uteslutning.

    I det andra kapitlet introduceras först den sydsvenska bonadstraditionen. Därpå presenteras Bengta Persdotter i Hyhult som ett exempel ur den kvinnliga skaran målare. I samband med det görs en möjlig attribuering av en bonad till henne. En historiografisk undersökning av folkkonstbegreppet påvisar hur det skapats av forskare för att särskilja folket från den kulturella eliten. Först betecknade folkkonst det förindustriella bondesamhällets konstnärliga föremål och den lyftes fram i en strävan att profilera en nationell identitet under senare 1800-tal. Under tidigt 1900-tal kom forskarnas attityder att bli nedlåtande. Teorier om ”gesunkenes Kulturgut” och stilretardation myntades för att leva kvar mot seklets slut. Ett begrepp som fortfarande används är ”horror vacui” vilket jag analyserar kritiskt och ger ersättningsförslaget ytmässig bildförtätning. En annan utveckling av begreppet är att det efterhand vidgats till att omfatta konsumtionssamhällets vardagsyttringar i en väldigt bred förståelse. Det får till följd att värderingen relativiseras. Undersökningen visar därtill att folkkonsten försummats av konstvetenskapen. Exempel på forskningens växlande värdering av sydsvenskt bonadsmåleri redogörs.

    I det tredje kapitlet diskuterar jag först resultatet från första kapitlet i relation till olika texter om konsten i termer av hur kultur och institutioner förhåller sig till främst klass men också kön och etnicitet. Några resultat från rapporter på fältet belyser situationen och tydliggör behovet av att inkludera de sociala kategorierna klass, kön och etnicitet i analyser av ojämlika maktförhållanden i konstvärlden.

    I det fjärde kapitlet jämför jag några bilder på bönder och adelsmän med avsändare från de olika klasserna adel, borgarklass och allmoge för att föra en diskussion om betydelsen av avsändarperspektiv och identifikation.

    I min diskussion drar jag några slutsatser om den diskursiva tystnaden kring framförallt klass. I uppsatsen dras linjer mellan olika skeenden i historien och våra dagar för att åskådliggöra samband mellan odlade attityder och dominerande norm i det fält som utgörs av konsten och konstvetenskapen.

    Where does this fit?: A Comparative Study of the Graphical Portrayal of Keys as a system in Survival-horror Games2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Puzzles have always been a central part of games. One of the simplest manifestations of a puzzle in games is an obstruction that prevents the player from progressing and an object that removes the obstruction. The system of unlocking new areas with keys is used in order to provide interesting level design and help build narrative in games. This examination intends to provide knowledge and insight into how this type of system is commonly portrayed visually and thus provide a basis for designers to build upon when creating similar challenges, providing a greater awareness of the design norms that are commonly applied. In the majority of the cases that have been examined during this study, text-based information is used to convey the majority of the essential information given to the players regarding the relationship of the key and the lock. In many cases the graphics serve only to highlight important features of the objects and help the player to quickly tell the different items apart in the inventory.

    Allmogemålaren Anders Ädel2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to investigate the Swedish painter and infantry soldier AndersÄdel (1809-1888), who has hitherto only been known from oral tradition. He lived in a preindustrial, rural society. He practised and developed an old and distinctive interior-decoration tradition in the farmsteads of the province of Hälsingland, in the north of Sweden. Contemporary descriptions convey a picture of a wealthy rural population, where the dominating social class were the owners of large farms, impressive in size, neatness, and the quality of the carpentry. So-called Ädel-paintings, though concentrated to the parish of Ljusdal, are also found in neighbouring parishes, and are a Gustaviann-style floral decoration painted on walls, furniture, and artefacts in especially light-blue, white, and red hues.

    Anders Ädel's biography can be reconstructed from parish records and military archives.Socially, he belonged to the landless rural labourers, who had a more independent positionin northern Sweden than in the south. They embraced the norms and aesthetics of the free-holding farmers, whose farms were the cultural centres of the countryside. The farmers andthe craftsmen of the parish were the style setters of domestic interior design and building. Astyle adopted in one parish confirmed an identity in relation to other parishes and social classes. The integrity and self-awareness which is expressed in the architecture can also be seen in the decorated farmstead interiors.

    Machiavelli utmanar Foucault med renässansmålaren Sebastiano del Piombo som vapendragare.2009In: Lambda Nordica: Tidskrift om homosexualitet, ISSN 1100-2573, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 25-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Spring 2008 Sebastiano del Piombo (1485-1547) was dedicated an exhibition in Rome, where he was introduced from Venice by the banker Agostino Chigi in Villa Farnesina 1511. The painting L´uomo in armi (1511-1512) was the poster for the exhibition and most probably a self-portrait. It is similar to the unidentified portrait Testa di giovane by Peruzzi in grisaille in the Villa Farnesina. With a queer perspective it proposes Sebastiano del Piombo as a lover of Agostino Chigi parallell with the young spouse Francesca Ordeaschi portrayed as Dorotea (1511-1512). After the death of Rafael in 1520 Sebastiano del Piombo was considered the most skilful painter in Rome. His many majestic homoerotic portraits with virtù correspond to the results of Guido Ruggiero in Machiavelli in love, sex, self and society in he Italian Renaissance (2007) about sexual identities and selfrepresentation in different consensusrealities. Ruggiero is inspired by Foucault and discusses masculinity rereading private letters by the Florentine politician Niccolò Machiavelli and contemporary literature. The exhibition of Sebastiano del Piombo was esthetically impressive but did not answer questions from a modern visitor. The catalogue is imposing but fatally prim avoiding the sex, self and society in Renaissance Rome and Venice so obvious in the art of Sebastaino del Piombo.
