Goldin+Senneby - Standard Length of a Miracle

27.1–15.5 2016 Standard Length of a Miracle is a mutating retrospective by Goldin+Senneby. Over the past ten years, the Stockholm-based artist duo has explored virtual worlds, offshore companies, withdrawal strategies, and subversive speculation. In a unique and subtle way, they combine artistic practice, financial theory, and performative methods, which are sometimes borrowed from the world of magic. The retrospective will be presented as installations and performances at Tensta konsthall as well as at other places not primarily associated with contemporary art. Stockholm School of Economics, the Third Swedish National Pension Fund, the Financial Supervisory Authority, the clothing store A Day's March, Cirkus Cirkör, and the historical art museum Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde all serve as stages for reactivations of Goldin+Senneby’s oeuvre from the past ten years. Introducing the artistic field to public institutions and commercial centers enables a shift of perspective about where art takes place and who the audience is.

New Visions

27.1–15.5 2016 New Visions. How do we see? With what gaze and from what horizon? In the group exhibition New Visions, seven artists with interests in the mechanisms and conditions of seeing address these questions. In paintings, prints, and photographs, the attention is pointed back to the observer. Thus, the observer contributes to the formulation of the work, affecting the patterns that appear and the associations that come forth. By refocusing and refiguring the way the eye apprehends a given space, New Visions contests the habits of seeing and the methods of directing the eye.

Space: Flaka Haliti

8.12 2015–15.5 2016 Space: I Miss You, I Miss You, ‘Till I Don’t Miss You Anymore by Flaka Haliti. The color of love is red, as the saying goes. In Flaka Haliti’s multichannel video installation I Miss You, I Miss You, 'Till I Do Not Miss You Anymore (2012), the color of love is, however, also yellow and grey. Yellow as a promise, as something sunny, but also as the traffic light’s waiting color. The uncertain state. Being prepared for a notice. Grey as the everyday color. A kind of non-color, emptiness, love when it ends.

Tensta Talks: Symposium: The Eros Effect: Sound records

Sound records Symposium: The Eros Effect: Art, Solidarity Movements and the Struggle for Social Justice, was held Saturday 17.10, 10:00–18:00. The symposium is the starting point of a multi-year inquiry into the relationship between art and solidarity movements, performed in a series of commissions, exhibitions, workshops, presentations, and film screenings. Faced with fascist parties gaining ground in Europe and an increasingly tough social climate, we see the necessity to return to the notion of solidarity in order to try its validity today. Will solidarity still be relevant in the future, or is it a historical concept? Do we need to find new ways to describe the political movements of today and their struggles, sympathies, and commitments? What does recognizing the urgency of a situation imply, and how do we act upon it?

Text Price 2016

For the third year in a row, Tensta konsthall presents a text prize for young people aged 15-25 years who reside in Stockholm’s outer urban areas. The form of the text is not set: it can be a short story, a diary note, or an essay as well as rap lyrics, poetry, or an everyday observation. It is more important that stories get a chance to be formulated and get spread than that they have correct grammar and flawless Swedish. The prize aims to promote young people's interest in language and the desire to dress their own reality, their thoughts and ideas, in words. It is the formulated existence that creates clear contours.

de:tune Järva

Ongoing The artist and composer Tarek Atoui work with the music genre, Tarab, and other classical Arabian music. It has a very sparsely documented history which Atoui, trained in electro-acoustic music and sound art, has delved into over several years. In Tensta he creates, over a period of six months, a kind of living archive together with local musicians and people interested in music. It becomes a bank of experience, whose constant changes and elaborations take place through encounters, listening together, improvisational concerts and conversations about music. All this ends up in various pieces of music that can be heard in the gallery café and concerts at Stockholm Music & Arts and Tensta Market. The participants' various musical traditions become an expression of Järva’s diverse musical identity.

Art and the F Word: Reflections on the Browning of Europe

Contributions from the cultural critic Boris Buden, the curators Jelena Vesic and Barnabas Benczik, and the artists Lawrence Abu Hamdan and Petra Bauer create and formulate resilient and constructive possibilities for artistic and social work. The language of politics and philosophy are examined, but also populistic tendencies, social contexts, media, science, and aesthetics.

Leonor Antunes
10.6–25.9 2016


Leonor Antunes

10.6–25.9 2016 In Leonor Antunes’s (Lisbon/Berlin) minimalistic installations, we see traces of 20th century modernist architecture. The works often refer to the geometric forms and patterns of modernism’s lesser-known designers and architects, many of whom are women. In her research-based installations, everything from furniture by designer Eileen Moray Gray (1878-1976) to buildings by the architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) has been interpreted. The atmospheric installations are inspired by the specific context in which they are constructed, but typically Antunes’s art is also interested in techniques and materials that have traveled over long distances and become part of a global trade. The installations are tactile encounters between a site’s architectural memory and its craft history. Cork, rope, leather, and nets are recurring materials in Antunes’s spatial interventions.

Guided tour: New Visions

Wednesday 27.1, 12:00 2016 New Visions: Guided tours by the artists Rana Begum, David Maljkovic, and Yelena Popova. How do we see? With what gaze and from what horizon? In the group exhibition New Visions, seven artists with interests in the mechanisms and conditions of seeing address these questions. In paintings, prints, and photographs, the attention is pointed back to the observer. Thus, the observer contributes to the formulation of the work, affecting the patterns that appear and the associations that come forth. By refocusing and refiguring the way the eye apprehends a given space, New Visions contests the habits of seeing and the methods of directing the eye.

Transmission from the Liberated Zones by Filipa César

18.10 2015–17.1 2016 Opening this fall is the artist and filmmaker Filipa César's new work Transmission from the Liberated Zones. The show marks the starting point of a two-year program line at Tensta konsthall that investigates contemporary art’s relation to international solidarity movements and examines the notion solidarity can imply today. Since 2008, César has worked with the post-colonial history of Portugal and the liberation movement in Guinea-Bissau. Her work renegotiates the mechanisms of history writing by combining established and subjective perspectives with the poetics inherent in moving images.

Liquidity Inc. by Hito Steyerl

10.10 2015–10.1 2016 Liquidity Inc. by Hito Steyerl, as part of The New Model. “Be water, my friend” reads the initial phrase in Hito Steyerl’s Liquidity 
Inc. (2014), a video installation about the formless, floating, violent, and simultaneously vital water. In Liquidity Inc., water gushes out of television screens and iPhone screen savers. It functions both as a liquid and as an inexhaustible metaphor: the liquefied form of capital, the dot-com bubble when it bursts.
