Book talk about culture and the creative industries

On April 15 at 15:15-17:00, we invite you to an exciting book talk around three newly launched books that all touch on aspects of the creative industries. The talk is held in English.


15:15 Welcome from the CROCUS network

Presentation of the new anthology Creative work - Conditions, Contexts and Practices, editors Erika Andersson Cederholm, Katja Lindqvist, Ida de Wit Sandström, Philip Warkander. Erika Andersson Cederholm (Department of Service Studies, Lunds University) presents the new anthology.

  • Erika Andersson Cederholm is Professor of Service Studies at the Department of Service Studies, Lund University. Her research interest is within economic sociology, tourism, and working life studies. Her recent research includes studies of lifestyle entrepreneurship in rural contexts, the role of meetings in organisations, and working conditions in the digital games industry.
  • Creative work - Conditions, Contexts and Practices features case studies from the European context, contributors tap into the experiences and practices from creative workers, demonstrating their attempts to navigate a changing environment which affects spaces, identities, and professional roles. Providing an opportunity to expand our conception of what creative work is, the book draws on studies of a range of activities, practices and sectors that are usually included in the cultural and creative industries as well as ones that are more untraditional. See link for more information about the book.

Cultural and Creative Industries Policy Making: Sweden in the European Context
Katja Lindqvist (Department of Service Studies, Lund University) presents her new book.

  • Katja Lindqvist, PhD, is Associate Professor at the Department of Service Studies and conducts research on organisation and management as well as policy and governance of and in the cultural field. She publishes and teaches in the field of arts management since the 1990s.

In particular, the book traces the development over time of CCI policy and points to organisational as well as stakeholder tensions in making policy happen. See link for more information about the book

Hip Heritage and Museum Practices in Contemporary Hybrid Markets
Lizette Gradén and Thomas O'dell (both from the Division of Ethnology, Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University) presents their new book.

  • Lizette Gradén is an Associate Professor of Ethnology at the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences. Her research includes Scandinavian-American culture and heritage, performance, ritual, and tradition, and cultural heritage making in museums and vernacular settings. She led numerous international research and curatorial projects focused on Nordic and American connectivity.
  • Tom O’Dell is Professor of Ethnology in the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences at Lund University, Sweden. His research in recent years has focused primarily upon The Cultural Economy, and the manner in which economic and cultural processes can be understood to be entangled in one another. 
  • Gradén and O’Dell are co-authors of the book Hip Heritage and Museum Practices in Contemporary Hybrid Markets (2024) London: Routledge. Focusing on how museums prioritize and produce content, the book demonstrates how economic issues play an ever-larger role in determining how cultural heritage is being framed and presented in contemporary heritage museums. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork conducted by the authors at seven museums over the course of five years, this book offers an in-depth analysis of heritage museums in Nordic, Scandinavian and North American contexts. It investigates how economic realities, coupled with the cultural contexts in which museums operate, affect how these institutions organize, manage and develop their collections to make themselves relevant in society. See link for more information about the book

When: June, 12th-14th, 2024
Where: Brandstationen, Gåsebäcksvägen 2, 252 27 Helsingborg
More information will follow. You can also follow the update of information on the conference page, see the following page

On 12-14 June 2024 the cross-disciplinary network CROCUS is inviting you to an international conference gathering keynote speakers, round tables, research presentations, art exhibitions and experimentationaround the theme of cultural spaces and the conditions of creativity.
During the conference we will explore policies, digital and physical places and platforms for culture and creativity, as well as place making, performance and play.

The aim of the conference is to:

  • Understand the aesthetics and the role of materiality, emotions, bodies, and senses to reach an understanding of transformations beyond restrictions by reason and measure.
  • Capture affects, ambiances, experiences and the tacit knowledge, embedded in spaces and places of transformation with regards to innovation, co-creation and sustainability.
  • Enhance knowledge and understanding of activities, practices, models, methods, and tools for and within creative ecosystems
  • Facilitate flows of creative processes, value-creating resources and circular supply chains to gain knew knowledge of how cultural and creative practices and industries can relate to dynamic and sustainable urban spaces and environments. 

CROCUS focuses on cultural and creative industries aiming to create a dynamic and living environment that strengthens both research and education. Hence, this conference addresses researchers, artists and practitioners in culture, creativity and the arts to blur the borders between art, design, architecture, social science, and the humanities to produce objects and forms that could be vectors of scientific inquiry, mediation with different stakeholders at a wider scale.

Network members are encouraged to come with ideas for conference streams, sessions, and speakers. Please contact Cecilia Fredriksson and Marie Ledendal for ideas and thoughts.

Material culture as historical source of ideas about fashion in life and death in the 17th century
Presenter: Pernilla Rasmussen (Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University)
Rasmussen is Senior Lecturer at the Division on Fashion Studies, Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences.

  • This presentation gives an example of how the clothed body can be studied as historical source, and how ideas in the 17th century about life, health, and death were materialized in clothing practices in the funerary dress of Peder Winstrup, Bishop of Lund. Peder Winstrup, known as initiator of Lund university, was buried in Lund Cathedral in 1680.

Co-Creative Knitting – explorations of an improvisational practices
Presenter: Marie Ledendal (Department of Strategic communication, Lund University) & Charlotte Østergaard (Malmö Theatre Academy, Lund University)
Ledendal is a Textile Designer and Senior Lecturer in Applied Visual Communication. Her research interest lays within materiality and design practices. ØstergaardDanish designer, artist, educator, and PhD fellow in artistic research, in her research costume (crafted materialities) act as a medium to study co-creative processes.

  • This presentation presents a collaborative work-in-progress project with the objective of exploring the dimensions of co-creative knitting practices. Drawing on artistic research, we introduce these practices as a playful and improvisational entanglement of human and non-human, resulting in co-constructed knowledge and meaning through performative and textile practices.

Lunch break, with guided tour of Brandstationen 

The Materialities of Staging Theatre 
Presenter: Jörgen Dahlqvist (Malmö Theatre Academy, Lund University)
Dahlqvist is a playwright and director. He is a PhD Student in artistic research at Malmö Theatre Academy since 2021.

  • This presentation discusses how different materialities influence the artistic work when staging theatre. The presentation is based on the performance Ibsendekonstruktion II: Brand that premiered in Malmö in the spring of 2023. Through the work with various materialities a manifold of aesthetic choices are made possible on how to interpret and stage a dramatic text. This will in turn affect the audience's experience and meaning making.

Spawning and Probing Verses - The Mundania case
Presenter: Robert Willim (The Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University)
Willim is Associate professor of Ethnology, lecturer in Digital Cultures and artist.

  • This presentation will concentrate on how he uses the interplay between materiality, light and sound across different media in his work. Willim will also discuss how he have developed the concept Mundania through art and research and through different forms of expression.

Coffee break 

Mediations of effortless accumulation for a polyphonic assemblage
Presenter: Halla Steinunn Stefansdottir (Malmö Academy of Music, Lund University) Stefánsdóttir is an artistic researcher at Malmö Academy of Music her research looks at what sonic thinking can afford through its many material entanglements in our techno-social societies. Recent commissions have linked to the lithosphere as well as sustainable agriculture in the EU.

  • This presentation looks at the mediations involved in the creation of a shimmering ornament of silt (Bruton & Stefánsdóttir, 2022), a multi-channel installation and performance work created for the National Arts Centre Orchestra’s SPHERE festival held in Ottawa (CA) in 2022.

Ancestral Dramaturgies: Uncovering Voinha's Migration Journey
Presenter: Iury Salustiano Trojaborg (Malmö Theatre Academy, Lund University)
Trojaborg’s doctoral research investigates ways of using performance art as a regenerative socio-political tool to provoke change in the understanding of the lives of immigrants. 

  • In this presentation Trojaborg analyse how the artefacts of questioning and listening became an important resource during the procedure of uncovering the personal and political reasons behind the migration journey his maternal grandmother Voinha embarked on in 1945 from the Amazon rainforest region to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and further, his own migration journey from Latin America to the Middle East and on to northern Europe, fifteen years ago. How coupling questioning with listening, allowed an oppressed woman to speak for herself, fostering in this way dramaturgies of awareness to feminist empowerment as a means to tackle the colonial and patriarchal ways the Brazilian national identity, among many others, is constructed.

Marie Ledendal & Charlotte Østergaard - Co-Creative Knitting – explorations of an improvisational practices

Welcome on October 11th-12th, to a two-day seminar on technology, media and mediation.

ln this seminar we will discuss methods to integrate sound and image and text. One focus is on what counts as media in this specific practice: the text, music, sound, the live performances of actors’ and musicians’? Or is the art form itself a medium? Another field of interests is how and what is mediated through technology, and what possibilities there are to address societal challenges through technology.

The seminar is a collaboration between CROCUS and SNT.

Sound, Narrative, Technology (SNT) is a network researching audio performance, dramatic writing, musical composition and hörspiel. Researchers, artists and experts within these disciplines meet to develop and deepen the fields that emerge at the intersection, and where the questions and problems take their starting point in narrative, artistic methods and content.

In my thesis work, I have focused on questions such as: How can norm breaches and breachers be used to illuminate blindspots in the design field? 
One of the conclusions is that design and designers can be understood in terms of 'in-betweenness/mellanförskap', i.e., neither inside nor outside and at the same time both, thereby providing opportunities to combine and expand different fields. To achieve that, it requires a willingness and ability to handle and manage the friction involved.'
- Despina Christoforidou
