Dance! - Baba Karam at Tensta konsthal

25 - 2.2 2022 Baba Karam - Dance away at Tensta konsthall
 
For five days in the darkness of January, Tensta konsthall will be transformed into a vibrating dance floor under the direction of the artist group Ful.  Baba Karam - Through Jamileh and Khordadian is based on the Persian dance style baba karam and mixes Persian, Kurdish and Arabic music into a hybridic dance with traces of disco and dance class including queer elements and drag. The show consists of a catchy instruction film, in which you as a visitor and in the intimacy of the sober setting, can dance away in a simple and fun choreography occasionally interrupted by memories and interviews. Concept and idea: Ful (Nasim Aghili, Malin Holgersson, Rani Nair) Setting: Björn Karlsson.  Participants: Parwin Hoseinia (Akh Baba), Rani Nair (Raj), Edwin Safari (Jafar the Superstar) and George Chamoun (Rasuul). 
 
The artistic team behind Baba Karam is the group Ful, which consists of the artists Rani Nair (choreographer), Malin Holgersson (interviews) and Nasim Aghili (director and dramatist). Nasim, a Swedish Iranian themself, wishes to direct the light on the American-Iranian dance legends Jamileh and Mohammad Khordadian, whose artistic practices have inspired millions of people around the world to dance.

Permanently Tensta’s Magical Wormholes  by Bella Rune, 2021
Mobile app, sprayed patterns on asphalt 
 
Did you notice the five stenciled, spray-painted patterns on the asphalt at Taxingeplan? There’s a simple flower, two doves with a year, a paisley-figure, a tulip-form and an abstract pattern. What you see is Tensta’s Magical Wormholes. For Tensta konsthall, the artist Bella Rune has created five portals into other worlds. Visit the app-store on your cell-phone, download the app Tensta’s Magic Wormholes and follow the instructions.  
 
In Bella Rune’s project Tensta’s Magical Wormholes, doors open into other worlds and to other ways of perceiving reality. And since Taxingeplan is a highly cosmopolitan place, where many languages are spoken and where there’s room for experiences from all over the world, there’s a good chance of making long distance connections there, maybe even intergalactic ones.

This way, knowledge about techniques such as embroidery, jewelry making, knitting and crochet.

Futures: Katharina Berndt Rasmussen and Moa Bursell

20.11 18:30 Futures: Katharina Berndt Rasmussen and Moa Bursell
 
Katharina Berndt Rasmussen
Imagine Linda, a business woman with strong anti-racist values. Despite her explicit values, she employs only light-skinned people, with Swedish-sounding names. Can we explain the difference between her explicit values and actual behaviour? A similar situation exists on the social level: Sweden is a liberal democracy with strong, anti-discrimination laws that forbid ethnic discrimination. According to very recent investigations, racist attitudes are on the decline amongst Swedes and a clear majority declare positive attitudes towards multiplicity. However, despite this, statistics indicate a widespread ethnic segregation and discrimination. How can this discrepancy be explained on both the individual and social level?
 
During the last 10-15 years, social science researchers have identified correlations between discriminating behaviour and so-called implicit prejudices. They have shown that these prejudices can contradict an individual’s explicit values and that they exist in all of us. Research results can contribute to explaining observed ethnic discrimination on the individual level — as in Linda’s case — and on the societal level.
 
But what should we do, as individuals and in society in general, to counteract our implicit prejudices and their effects? One answer to this question requires a moral philosophical perspective, in addition to the social scientific one. I will talk about moral philosophical questions such as: can Linda really be held responsible for implicit prejudices that she is unaware of? Should we blame or censure her? And how far should we go in our attempts to counteract implicit prejudices? 
 
Self-presentation: I am a researcher in practical philosophy at the Institute for Future Studies. My areas of philosophical interest include political philosophy, moral philosophy and feminist philosophy. I have previously carried out research on democracy, discrimination, sexism, racism, harm and justice. In my present research I examine the moral philosophical implications that accompany empirical research on implicit bias. I received my PhD in 2013 at Stockholm University, with the thesis Democracy and the Common Good: A Study of the Weighted Majority Rule. The thesis was awarded the Stockholm University Association’s prize for the best thesis in the Humanities at Stockholm University. I am a university instructor, teaching courses in critical thinking, feminist philosophy, modern political philosophy and normative ethics. I am also editorial assistant for Tidskrift för Politisk Filosofi (the journal of political philosophy), a member of SWIP-Sweden (the Society for Women in Philosophy Sweden) and engaged in the public debate concerning issues such as equality, justice and democracy.
 
Moa Bursell: Can We Counteract Prejudices That We Don’t Know We Have?
 
Ethnic discrimination creates an unequal access to resources and opportunities. This relates not least to encounters between citizens and authorities, when ethnic background can affect, for instance, a civil servant’s judgement of how social welfare should be distributed or to encounters between employers and job applicants, when the assessment of the applicant’s qualifications or merits can be influenced.
Discriminatory judgements can depend on implicit — that is, unconscious — values that influence individuals without their knowing it. However, there are studies showing that these implicit negative attitudes can be reduced — or alternatively, controlled — at least temporarily through various psychological exercises. But we still don’t know whether these changes are temporary or permanent. Neither do we know if a reduction of implicit negative attitudes or increased control over them has any significant effect on the real assessments and decisions that employers and civil servants make concerning employment or distribution of welfare. I will present existing research in this area and discuss the form in which efforts to counteract unconscious prejudices might take.
 
Self-presentation: I am a researcher in sociology at the Institute for Future Studies. In 2012 I defended my PhD thesis, Ethnic Discrimination, Name Change and Labour Market Inequality — Mixed Approaches to Ethnic Exclusion in Sweden. I have continued to research ethnic discrimination in the labour market, and on discrimination in encounters between citizens and public institutions.

Futures

2018 A series of seminars at Tensta konsthall in collaboration with the Institute for Future Studies, for presentation throughout 2018
 
Can we be optimistic about the future of the world and mankind? Seldom has this question been so contentious as it is now. On the one hand, infant mortality, poverty and the number of violent crimes and wars in the world have decreased radically, while longevity, literacy, access to education, health care and clean water have increased. On the other hand, we face a serious climate crisis at the same time as several bloody conflicts continue, with consequent untold numbers of people seeking refuge. We are also witnessing a rise in racist and anti-democratic attitudes and movements in many places, and national sovereignty is being challenged by, amongst other things, technological developments that have created new, difficult to decipher infrastructures and new governance structures and processes.

This summer, Tensta konsthall’s Small gallery is transformed into a temporal classroom or meeting spot. Among the ”guests”, visitor will find figures from the history of pedagogy. Applied on textiles, they inhabit the the room with their individual expressions and together they form an encounter with teachers and theoreticians discovered by the artists through various sources, contexts and periods of time. The works thematize the links between learning, knowledge and creativity and all our senses as well as their importance to our ability to understand the world, ourselves and how everything is connected.

Fall break course

1 - 5.11 2021 OVER HERE! ATTENTION!
Fall break Design course at Tensta konsthall
 
How would you promote your band? Your fashion collection? An invitation to the big party or a new computer game? Everybody knows that successful visual communication is crucial and might mean the difference between failure and triumph.    

Beckman School of Design offers a specific education for this field of knowledge and now Tensta konsthall has the pleasure to invite previous students from the school to share their skills and experiences in a one week course. Try out the profession and get an insight into a day in a designer's life! We will experiment with a number of materials and expressions. 
 
Dates: Monday - Friday 1 - 5.11 2021
Hours: 10 - 14
Age: 15 - 23
 
A simple lunch will be served at Tensta konsthall. One of the days will take place at Beckman School of Design including lunch. Free of Charge. Register to george@tenstakonsthall.se

The Tensta konsthall open call - our jury

Applications accepted until 5.9 2021. Here is the jury for Tensta konsthall’s open call!
 
A curator with a special interest in film, diaspora and philosophy, an artist who sheds light on the  queer histories in cities and an artist with an international practice within social projects forms the group which will be the jury for Tensta konsthall’s open call.  The exhibition, which will open later this fall, does not yet have a title, but will take aim at the imaginative possibilities in art and how it can draw new lines and perspectives on public space, its power structures and future.
