Abstract [en]

Through the example of author couple Märta and Henrik Tikkanen, this article explores the conditions of artistic work related to gender roles, especially in relation to domestic work and parenting. Traditionally, to engage in creative work has been coded as a masculine activity that absorbs the artist’s whole person. “To be an artist” is often considered to have more to do with one’s identity than with one’s profession. This makes it difficult – sometimes even impossible – to combine with parenting, especially with motherhood, which is also thought to entail the whole being of a person; something that female artists have long attested to. The Tikkanens are unique in that that they write in dialogue with one another, so that they, through their separate individual work create a joint, yet conflicting, story of life together. Märta Tikkanen’s work centers the difficulties of combining the role of wife/mother with that of the artist. She describes her responsibilities towards her loved ones as a barrier, blocking her possibilities to work and be creative. Henrik Tikkanen, on the other hand, portrays love as a means to enhance one’s persona. In his work, love is a helping force, not a hinder. The differences in ability to devote oneself to art characterised by the Tikkanens’ work highlight the importance of understanding symbolic structures of gendered conditions in the art world, rather than understanding artists’ conditions in solely economic-structural terms.

Abstract [en]

Higher education can function as an important marker of seriousness in fields characterized by diffuse professional standards. Using the case of a fine arts institute, the article outlines the role of higher education in promoting the interconnection of a professional and individual subjectivity; being an artist is not merely something one does but something one is. By primarily examining interview material, it explores how an ideal position of individual self-reliance relates to the alumni of the institute. Some respondents were not “in sync” with this position and needed to seek out other resources in order to construct themselves as professional artists. However, they seldom rejected the kind of subjectivity promoted by their education, but rather renegotiated it as part of the uncertainty of their chosen field.

Abstract [sv]

Konsten att vara på riktigt öppnar nya vägar och perspektiv när det gäller barns och ungas rätt att fritt få uttrycka sig. Ung & Skapande är ett exempel på hur unga människor får en plats att mötas på och tillsammans möjligheten att uttrycka sig konstnärligt. Scenen för detta var Röda Sten konsthall i Göteborg. Samtidigt som möten mellan unga var den bärande iden i projektet, var det också ett nydanande pedagogiskt grepp i den meningen att det innebar möten mellan två olika professioner - konstpedagoger och socionomer. Det var dessa två grupper som modigt mötte varandra och tillsammans med de unga utvecklade ett förhållningssätt och en metodik där den skapande kraften togs tillvara. Detta spännande projekt har tidigare utvärderats av Sofia Lindström. I den skrift du nu håller i din hand får vi ta del av lärdomar från utvärderingen.

Abstract [en]

The Art of Being for Real opens up new paths and perspectives concerning the right of children and young people to self-expression. Young & Creative is an example of young people having access to a place in which to meet and express themselves artistically. The setting for this was Röda Sten Art Centre in Gothenburg. While the meeting between young people was a founding concept, the project also had certain pedagogically groundbreaking aspects in that it brought together two different professions - social workers and art pedagogues. These two groups met head on with a great deal of courage and, working alongside the young people, developed an approach and methodology to nurture creative energy. This exciting project had earlier been assessed by Sofia Lindström. The reader is now able to partake of the lessons of her assessment, as presented in this booklet.

Abstract [en]

This article explores contemporary Swedish artists’ experiences of work–family conflict from a gender perspective. Sweden is a critical case as the country is well-known for its official gender equality policy stressing the importance of possibilities for women and men to balance family and paid work. The analysis of survey data collected from 2,025 Swedish professional visual artists shows their self-reported levels of work–family conflict to be generally low. Women artists, however, were found to experience more conflict than men artists. The results suggest that women face more pressure from the demands of both work and home than men. While an OLS regression analysis showed a relationship between the artists’ parenting responsibility and their perceived level of work–family conflict overall, for men artists this was so only at the second child. An unequal division of housework had negative consequences for women artists’ work–family balance, while the effect of being single was in this regard more pronounced among men than among women. This suggests that men, to a greater extent than women, depend on a spouse to handle the balance between work and family. Although much has happened regarding the gender issues in the art world, patterns of dependence and traditional gender roles in work and caring thus continue to persist, limiting individuals’ choices and actual ability to work as an artist, especially for women.
