Homeland ritualized – An analysis of the memorial messages laid down in the streets of Oslo after 22 July
The memorial messages displays a relation between the private and the public – something personal was expressed and brought into the public. The messages are a ritualistic attempt to influence not only how we as a society should understand the terror attack and the response to it, but also an attempt to influence on society itself. The memorial messages are interpreted as gifts (sacrifices) rendered as part of a purification of the streets of Oslo, a purification made possible by expressing certain values and need for change.
