META and regina: Two (Magazine) Sisters in Crime

11.6–28.9 2014 Archive exhibition. META and regina: Two (Magazine) Sisters in Crime. META and regina are both magazines founded independently in the 1990’s by two female cultural producers. Using their first names as titles of the magazines they made a public statement as a tool of institutional critique on normative concepts within the art system at the time. Although distinguished by their unusual characters and strategies, the two magazines - META and regina - share a common feminist position and subversive approach that make them 'sisters in crime'.

Arab Image Foundation – Rifat Chadirji Collection

11.6–28.9 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.

Art and Literature walk in Tensta

Thursday 18.9, 15:00–16:00 Art and Literature walk in Tensta 
with Emily Fahlén and Tal LewinskyIn the Tensta subway, Helga Henschen conjures an image of the 70s using words like solidarity and sisterhood. When the poet Meron Mangasha makes a contemporary depiction of the same site, the metro's blue line becomes royal blood. On the adjacent Järvafältet the Taikon family once upon a time set up their camp in the childhood portrayal of the young Katitzi.

In collaboration with Tensta Library. The tour starts at Tensta Konsthall.

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.
