Var finns den statliga kulturpolitiken? Inte bara på kulturdepartementet

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to compare how the Swedish national government organizes its relationship to culture (seen as a distinct sphere in society) in the various relevant ministries and policy areas. It is noted that the Ministry of Culture is not, as often is assumed, responsible for most of the government’s policies directed at this sphere, neither are its policies representative of the government’s policies towards culture. This explicit cultural policy does, however, have certain characteristics when compared to how other ministries relate to culture. Explicit cultural policy is primarily concerned with professional culture consecrated in the art field, as well as by a normative concept of autonomy for that field. While autonomy also exists in parts of the cultural sphere financed by other ministries and actors, it can take very different forms. Government policy on culture appears to be highly dependent on how responsibility for it is shared between ministries and other actors. These borders are often examples of historical path dependency. It is thus important that cultural policy research do not limit itself to explicit cultural policy, but also that it takes note of the borders between areas of responsibility in government and other relevant organizations, and how these influences cultural policy.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med artikeln är dels att översiktligt beskriva den svenska statliga politik som inriktar sig på kulturområdet som samhällssfär, och dels att beskriva skillnaderna mellan de olika delarna av denna politik i fråga om organisation och rådande normer. Det konstateras att politik som bedrivs av kulturdepartementet och dess myndigheter inte utgör huvud­delen av stat­ens politik gent­­emot kulturområdet.  Inte heller är den representativ för denna. Däremot har den andra utmärkande drag, som att den i första hand inriktar sig mot en tämligen be­gräns­ad del av kulturlivet, främst mot den professionella kultur som er­känns av konstens fält. Den ut­märker sig också genom att den förutsätts respektera auto­nom­in i detta kulturliv, en respekt som ofta beskrivs som ”armslängds­principen”.
