Recently, news came that the British port city of Liverpool was losing its World Heritage status. UNESCO believes the British have long mismanaged the Victorian port districts through demolition and new construction, to the extent that they are now taking the title out of the city.
In the UK, for obvious reasons, this decision was very disappointing, but it affects us at home. The world heritage city of Karlskrona has received similar warning signals from UNESCO about plans for a new cultural home in Startergate. According to the information Southeast Released on Tuesday, however, the plans continue despite a slightly modified format.
“It has been pointed out that this project may cause damage to the World Heritage Site, but it does not specify anything that would mean removing Karlskrona from the World Heritage List,” says city architect Christina Stark. Southeast. Slightly different opinion since irreversible intervention can justify such elimination.
As the architectural tradition demands respect, what can result from the new buildings planned as a counter-superstition center of the municipality. The plan for a new public building will become part of a larger proposal. And dreams of a prosperous future for the city are at play.
Unfortunately, Kulturhus lawyers are likely to be disappointed.
“Priority areas for culture in Karlskrona, but not for luxurious municipal political dreams.”
What is missing in central Karlskrona are not beautiful buildings, where cultural activities can take place, BLT’s cultural editor Pastor Sparrow has pointed to as an alternative suitable place. In addition, there is a building today for an art show in Stortjert by the Concert Hall Theater.
No, the missing culture in Karlskrona. Art, music, theater and dance shine through in the absence of the city’s public environment.
This will not be resolved by a new campus, but there is a risk that the hundreds of tax dollars spent and completed will then become another empty stream of hope that cannot be filled by concrete content. Is the municipality ready to act as a long-term financier of the measures needed to keep a new cultural home alive? That question should be asked of local politicians who support a new cultural home today, and ultimately to the taxpayers responsible for the bill.
At the other end is better than starting a new cultural mansion: how do we get the world heritage that Karlskrona prides itself on as a living meeting place for culture? How can we create sites for free cultural practitioners of Karlskrona and Plekking in existing buildings? How can the world heritage hidden behind the high walls of the Navy today become accessible to the public?
An exemplary example in that direction we saw last winter when Frederickskyrgan’s Baroque home became a project surface for beautiful Christmas lights. Last fall, students from Jancoping University participated in a pilot project with municipal lighting. Many World Heritage Buildings.
A concept developed in favor of both so-called movie screenings and light shows. In July 2017, I became a spectator to a spectacular display planned in Strasbourg Cathedral, France. This is fortunately recorded.
In other words, more planning areas for culture in Karlskrona, but not for luxurious municipal political dreams.
