Retten til kultur

Emma Rægaard Larsen

Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


This paper examines how David Harveys work, “The right to the city”, can be transferred to the question of who has the right to culture. Apart from that, Terry Eagleton will be involved in the discussion, to elucidate the class differences and the fluid relationship between culture and society. Richard Florida will be a part of the theoretical fundament as well, to put focus on the creative class in urban planning and culture planning. The big questions are who has the right to produce culture, and who takes that right.
To investigate this question, I use my anthropological field study, that I prepared as a part of my project-oriented internship in the Culture Management department in the Municipality of Copenhagen. Apart from that, I made three different ethnographic interviews with three different culture employees in the Municipality. With this empirical collection of information, I discuss how culture is produced, and for whom. I discovered that the production of culture is now for everyone, as it depends on class differences and cultural habitus. The conclusion is, that culture has to be for everyone, and everyone has to have a part in the production of culture, as it affects a whole society.
