Demoteket describes itself as a group of undergrond libraries. They are situated in a number of public libraries, some in Copenhagen and one in Kolding. Demoteket is highly influenced by the Do It Yourself (DIY) culture. The values that lie within the DIY culture conflict with the institutional culture to a certain extent. Demoteket and the public library misunderstand each other on certain points, which is the result of having roots in different cultural fields; the DIY culture and the institutionalized library. A reason for this misunderstanding can be found in the fact that the public library and Demoteket have very different norms and backgrounds. The public library is deeply founded in the instutional culture, which has little in common with the DIY culture – the essence of Demoteket. This thesis aims to analyze what happens when underground culture is to coorporate with the institutional culture.
