Textila tolkningar: om hängkläden, drättar, lister och takdukar

Detta är en avhandling från Nordiska museets förlag

Sammanfattning: The aim of this study is to discuss the production, use, and interpretation of a group of decorative interior textiles during the period 1750–1950 belonging to the County Museum in Halmstad. Questions guiding the investigation are: How did production take place? How were the textiles used in different times and places? How have the textiles been interpreted and what effects have different interpretations had: in manufacture and in use, when they were transformed into museum objects, or when they were written into a feminine interpretative framework? What cultural meanings have the textiles had? How can a study of the textiles themselves help to shed light on the questions? The last question points towards a methodological choice, where the textiles as material phenomena constitute source material alongside textual and visual sources. This puts materiality and the textiles at the centre, as the hub from which questions about production, use, and interpretations proceed. By doing phenomenology in relation to the studied objects, it has been possible to carry on a discussion of them, their design and structure, and the role and meaning of them as objects and as parts of a home decoration.
