Björn Wiman: They have shone in the past the capital of culture year

the Sport has once again moved on to the ministry of culture. The new minister of culture, Amanda Lind is not only responsible for the country's theatre and konstpolitik, but also for matters related to football, equestrian and biathlon. One of the kulturministerns favorite is the cozy ”Vinterstudion” in SVT.

Perhaps there is in this a certain logic. The fact is that the culture was an OLYMPIC sport between the years 1912 and 1948, when there were five forms of art: architecture, graphics/painting, literature, music and sculpture. At various times, was also launched proposals to include branches such as dance, film, photography and theater, but none of these forms of art were incorporated as a branch within the races.

by the artworks were judged by a jury, on two occasions saw that Sweden was awarded with a gold medal in the art. The painter David Wallin took home the gold in Los Angeles in 1932 with his painting ”At Arilds beach” and Gustaf Nordahls sculpture, ”Homage to Ling”, won the medal of the highest denomination in London in 1948.

today, culture has no longer any place in the sports world – if you ignore the staggering beauty of some of the individual performances. Dagens nyheter's culture prize, on the other hand, continues to ensure that different branches may enrich and also meet each other physically. The idea for the award comes from the idea of genrernas combat during antiquity and the renaissance, which eloquently argued for what was one of the finest among the art forms.

for the thirteenth time. Since its inception in 2007, the forms for the prize has changed slightly, but the basic idea remains: DN's critics select five artists from the genres of music, literature, film, theatre and the arts. Of them will kulturredaktionen ago to designate the final ”winner” – which may Eva Lange's beautiful statue of ”Little rain” and a sum of 50 000 sek.

the Criterion to be nominated is as easy as winning one of those world cup events, as shown in the “Vinterstudion”. You are going to simply be the best. And these five artists have together shone in the past the capital of culture year!
