Men är det Konst? : En undersökning av möjligheterna att använda stiftelser för inköp av texila konstverk till Moderna Museets samling
Sammanfattning: Against a background of feminist art theories arguing that the hierarchies in art as based on masculine norms, the present thesis examines the four foundations associated with the Swedish state museum of modern art Moderna Museet. The object descriptions are gone through with open coding, to see wether there are formulations in these that affect the possibility to utilize the foundations yield for purchasing textile art. To ground the conclusions, the textile artworks in the collection are reviewed. The findings show that there are no terms in the object descriptions that would explain the low representation of textile art in the collection, since no terms regarding the artworks material nor the artists gender are set. It could therefore rather be a subjective choice by the decision-makers at the museum. Textile art’s position as a traditionally feminine craft renders it not self-evident within the masculine norms of art and modern art museums, and the causes of the mis-representation as well as future prospects are discussed.
