Abstract

SAKLETARHISTORISKA RIKSMUSEET / THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SEARCHING FOR STUFF is Karolina Willebrand Vinnberg’s Independent Degree Project within the Master's Programme in Acting at Stockholm University of the Arts 2021-2023, examining and performing the Swedish children's book character Pippi Longstocking as if she were a museum artifact. With tools such as parody, intertextual analysis and immersive performance her hitherto (imagined) unknown inner life is excavated, dissected and exposed. This research also explores what happens in the encounter between actor and audience when performing and co-existing in an immersive museum space. The research process ended with a performative exhibition set in and produced in collaboration with The Swedish Museum of Performing Arts in Stockholm. This exhibition included seven scenographic installations and exhibit objects with associated audio guides, four video works and four immersive performances and an actress being present as the character of Pippi Longstocking throughout the days.
