Frederick Kiesler: Visions at Work Annotated by Céline Condorelli and Six Student Groups

11.2–2.5 2015 During the early spring of 2015, Tensta konsthall, in collaboration with the Austrian Frederick and Lillian Kiesler Private Foundation in Vienna, will show the first exhibition in Sweden of Frederick Kiesler's genuinely transdisciplinary work. Frederick Kiesler (1890–1965) was an architect, artist, scenographer, pedagogue, theorist and - not least - a groundbreaking exhibition designer.


What Does an Exhibition Do?

What Does an Exhibition Do? is a series of seminars at Tensta konsthall in spring 2015 exploring what an exhibition actually does, both historically and now. In the wake of curating taking shape as a field, many different forms through which art goes public are in use today. The exhibition is one of them, and is perhaps the oldest form for making art public that is still important as such. Nevertheless, the primacy of the exhibition is contested when artists and curators seek to follow the needs of the art works rather than a set formatand as a result,  curating and exhibition-making are being disentangled.


The News Agency

Nyhetsbyrån (The News Agency) is a long-term initiative for young people who are interested in journalism that focuses on the production and analysis of different forms of documentary storytelling. In January 2015, Nyhetsbyrån begins a part-time course for young people aged 18 to 25 that will be run in collaboration with JMK, the Department of Media Studies at Stockholm University, and GDI, the Graphic Design & Illustration department at Konstfack.

6.12 2014–2.5 2015 I’m Every Lesbian by Sofia Hultin, aspart of Tensta Museum Continues. I'm Every Lesbian is a city tour in I-form, based on interviews with lesbians living in specific locations. In addition, the walk’s extensive material from the project is presented at Space, Tensta Konsthall´s curatorial platform online.


School Section by Dave Hullfish Bailey

22.10 2014–11.1 2015 School Section by Dave Hullfish Bailey, as part of The New Model. Bailey's practice is rooted in close observation, cross-disciplinary analysis and the experimental mapping of specific places, often sites where geographical edges coincide with cultural and economic margins. Sculptural processes and forms—including models, improvised devices, working prototypes, provisional architectures and sited interventions—play multiple roles in his projects, not only as conceptual motors and concretely experienced objects, but as means for speculative realignments of social patterns.


Tensta Museum Continues

Tensta Museum: Reports from New Sweden is about history and memory in Tensta, both in relation to the place and to the people who live and work here. After Tensta Museum Fall Department (26.10 2013–13.1 2014) and Spring Department (18.1–18.5 2014) as well as branches in the same period at the Stockholm City Museum, and Museum of Medieval Stockholm, the museum the area can now call its own is continuing in the form of Salon Tensta, a classroom for Swedish lessons, original drawings of Tensta by architect Igor Dergalin, posters by artist Jakob Kolding, an Arts and Literature walk in Tensta and seminars. The online platform Space and Beirut’s Arab Image Foundation present Rifat Chadirji’s Collection of photographs with late modernist architecture and people in public space in Iraq from the period around 1950–75. Citizen to Citizen, a venue for newcomers who need support and knowledge of the community in Sweden takes place every Thuesday and a language café is organized through The Silent University. 


Tarek Atoui and de:tune Järva at Tensta Market

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.


Lecture Lars Bang Larsen

Saturday 10.1, 15:00 Lecture by Lars Bang Larsen: Childhood's End, a lecture as part of The New Model. Taking its title from Arthur C. Clarke's 1956 novel and using examples from art and culture history, Bang Larsen’s talk is a speculation on the historical contingency of childhood as a discursive formation.

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

Focusing on the alarming spread of fascism in Europe, the various contributions in the book Art and the F Word: Reflections on the Browning of Europe indicate the power of art to imagine futures beyond the present situation and what can be perceived as irrevocable. 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.

23.5–27.9 2015 LTTR – Lesbians to the Rescue, Listen Translate Translate Record... In Spring/Summer 2015 Tensta konsthall will present an exhibition of the feminist genderqueer artist collective LTTR.

This Place is Every Place by Ane Hjort Guttu

22.10 2014–11.1 2015 This Place is Every Place by Ane Hjort Guttu, as part of The New Model. This Place is Every Place essentially consists of a dialogue between two women in the suburb of Tensta in Stockholm. The Arab spring is a backdrop for their conversation, and the film puts forward a connection between the global protest movements of the past three years and the riots in the Swedish suburbs.

Arab Image Foundation – Rifat Chadirji Collection

11.6–30.11 2014 Rifat Chadirji is reckoned to be one of the most important architects in the Arab world. He was born in 1926 in Iraq and trained as an architect in London. Soon after his graduation he returned to Iraq and participated in the large-scale, modernist building projects carried out in Iraq during the 1950s, made possible because of income from Iraq’s oil industry. Chadirji had a prominent role in this work. In addition to his employment as advisor to the government, he also started the company Iraq Consult, in 1952, which became well known for its artistic use of architecture.

Wednesday 17.12, 18:30 2014 
Book release for Phantom of Liberty: Contemporary Art and the Pedagogical Paradox. With Tone Hansen, director
of Heine Onstad Art Center in Oslo. How does contemporary art engage with issues like childhood, play, and pedagogy?
