It is equally divided between a theoretical and a practical part.
The first part consists of personal reflections, and an analysis using Gillian Rose’s model and theories. The theoretical research shows that culture has many complex definitions that have evolved through academic debate. The analysis of current visual communications from both the artistic and commercial fields, show that there is one representation (of culture) that is being communicated. The practical part has been strongly influenced by this theoretical research, and explores the ‘hidden’ northern Norwegian culture.TutorsBarbara Mauck, Viola Zimmermann
