Abstract [en]

A mine is not only a site for the production of minerals. The industrial landscape surrounding the mine with the large slag heaps and typical buildings and environments have for hundreds of years been a symbol of production processes, profitable business and hard work. The very same landscape is now interpreted and given quite different meaning depending on the role of the mine in place specific contexts and a global system of production and consumption processes. In the mines of Falun and Kiruna the industrial landscapes are used and given meaning in different ways. One of the reasons for this is that the mine in Falun has been closed since 1992 and the mine in Kiruna is still in use. The landscape as a symbol for the history of the mining and its surrounding activities in Falun are now developed for different types of experience-related activities. The mine in Falun is also classified as a world heritage by UNESCO which gives the mine a special status as an important cultural heritage site. In Kiruna the industrial landscape of the mine is not primarily a landscape of experiences and cultural preservation. The mining company, Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara AB (LKAB) is planning to expand the production with enormous consequences for the town of Kiruna and its cultural heritage. At the same time the industrial landscape of the Kiruna mine is also a potential resource for experiences both in terms of the historical mining town with its old church but also the spectacular mountains of waste stones and the sound of the ongoing production under ground.
