English abstract
When approaching urban space and architecture as situations and structures influenced by glocal power relations, it becomes relevant to ask whose glocal connections are visualized and manifested, and whose futures and pasts are thereby connected and imagined. And, what role do cultural heritage institutions play in these processes? Do policies of cultural diversity deal with these issues? States adopt global and regional policies that emphasize cultural diversity, such as policies by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the European Union (EU).1 At the Swedish national level, the Historic Environment Act aims to “ensure present and future generations a diversity of cultural environments” (SFS 1988:950). However, what a diversity of cultural environments or cultural heritages might mean is not further defined. Nor do Stockholm’s municipal policies on culture (e.g., Stockholm City 2014; 2015) explain how to reach these goals in practice. With these questions, I approached the Stockholm City Museum for an interview. I was interested in whether (and if so, how) this context of glocal cities and the goals of cultural diversity had any bearing on the museum’s role in urban planning and development. I was, thus, in this instance, less focused on the collecting or archival side of the museum. Even if the museum has inclusive, participative projects in the city, where a diversity of narratives and voices are collected and documented (e.g., in books, exhibitions, and digital, participatory archives), these narratives are not obviously connected to or used in urban planning and development.
