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.


Symposium The Eros Effect

Saturday 17.10, 10:00–18:00 Symposium The Eros Effect: Art, Solidarity Movements and the Struggle for Social Justice.
 The symposium forms 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?


Transmission From the Liberated Zones by Filipa César

17.10 2015–10.1 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.


Art Camp

During school breaks Tensta konsthall arranges art camps for children and teenagers, 10–19 years old under the guidance of a professional artist. The art camp may revolve around specific mediums, themes, or the artist’s own practice.


The News Agency

Ongoing The News Agency, 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. Nyhetsbyrån is a part-time course for young people aged 18 to 26 that is run in collaboration with JMK, the Department of Media Studies at Stockholm University, and GDI, the Graphic Design & Illustration department at Konstfack. By borrowing methods from art, the course enables an approach that opposes a sensationalist media logic in favor of thought and reflection.


Katitzi: A Literary Character Rooted in Reality on tour

27.6–18.10 2015 Exhibition at Almedalsbiblioteket in Visby. Katitzi: A Literary Character Rooted in Reality, which was produced and shown at Tensta konsthall 2012, is now back as a traveling exhibition.



What do a fishy offshore company, secret artists, a ghost writer and French philosophy have in common? No connections are inconceivable in the recently published thriller Headless. The novel is published by Tensta konsthall, Triple Canopy (New York) and Sternberg Press (Berlin) and forms the final phase in a nine year-long performance on state sovereignty, surveillance and strategies for withdrawal, initiated by the artist duo Goldin+Senneby.


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.


Tensta konsthall wins Stockholm Prize 2014

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.


The Silent University: Language Café

Fridays and Sundays 14:00–17:00 

Every Friday and Sunday afternoon a Language Café led by Fahyma Alnablsi will be arranged.

In 2012, the Sibling Art Centers arranged a series of hearings to highlight and discuss the prevailing cultural policies as well as art institutions and artists' access to financing. Questions about gentrification and "creative industries" continue to be hot topics when the Siblings Art Centers meet.



2012–2014 Casco, Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht, Tensta konsthall, Stockholm, and The Showroom, London are pleased to announce the launch of the two-year project COHAB that investigates meaningful ways in which artists and organisations can be deeply invested within their local contexts and at the same time form close dialogues in an international arena.

After Tensta Museum Fall Department (26.10 2013–13.1 2014) and Spring Department (18.1–18.5 2014) as well as branches during the same period at the Stockholm City Museum, and Museum of Medieval Stockholm, the suburbs’ own museum now continues as an integrated part of Tensta konsthall.


Here We LTTR: 2002–2008

23.5–27.9 2015 LTTR is the name of a feminist, genderqueer artist collective originally based in New York. In the early 2000s, the group engaged in ambitious editorial work and knowledge gathering that resulted in a series of performances, readings, and an annual journal, among other things. The journal, half work of art, half political event, took on a new guise for each number, ranging from spiral notebooks with golden inscriptions to manila envelopes to LP covers.


Tensta Museum at Survival K(n)it 7 in Riga

4.9–20.9 2015 Tensta Museum at Survival K(n)it 7 in Riga. Tensta museum has been invited to participate in Latvia's internationally acclaimed art event, the festival Survival Kit, which is organized by the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art. The festival started in 2009 as a reaction to the economic crisis. Artists are invited to contribute reflections on the socio-economic transformations and to propose possible survival strategies. In this year's edition of Survival K(n)it, an extra n has slipped in. This knitting can be said to symbolize everyday life and pastime and also, through participation and creativity, to weave together the private and public domains.


LTTR: Fanny Ambjörnsson

Monday 7.9, 19:00 2015 The lecture “When You Grow Up and Marry. On Age, Heteronormativity and Gender” is based on research conducted by Ambjörnsson and Janne Bromseth on living conditions and strategies of resistance among two generations of LGBTQ people. The focus will be on how conceptions of age, time, and normative courses of life are interconnected with a normalizing sexuality—and on what happens to those who end up in their periphery.
