Abstract [sv]

The purpose of the essay is to discuss from the theory about the established and the Outsiders if the Culture Centre Blå Stället can serve as a meeting point between the majority of the people and the minority of the people in Gothenburg. The idea of Blå Stället is that it shall work as a house available for everyone and as a cultural meeting point between people in and outside Angered. I argue if Blå Stället really is a place where people from Gothenburg as a whole go or if there are some hindrances for their visions. My study is comprised of interviews with three of the staff at Blå Stället. With the theory about the established and the outsiders I want to show that the division in the city between “them” and “us” has to do with differences of power. I also want to emphasize that power and power relations are complex and that different structures of power based in gender, ethnicity and class are reconstructed mutually. That’s why I bring intersectionality in the theory too. The staff at Blå Stället wants many visitors, both from the area and from the centre. What I mean is that it can open on to that focus mainly will be on the numbers of visitors and not on the vision that people shall meet each other there. On the basis of that I can see a risk that the divisions between “we” and “them” continue at the Culture Centre. Where Blå Stället is situated; the suburb, and who decides to come to Blå Stället or not, interact. I believe it depends on a generalized idea of the suburb and “those” who live there. But one of the respondents could see that the generalized opinions about the suburbs are on its way to change. I can see that as a tendency towards a change of the divisions between “we” and “them”.
