Stockholm based Anna Nordström is an artist who graduated from Konstfack in 2012. In her textile practice, she uses traditional as well as self innovated techniques with wich she creates an imagery inspired by classical art history as well as by commercials and everyday signs, public information, digital symbols and from life.

Sonic Insurrections with Nombuso Mathibela

26.3 2022 Sonic Insurrections with Nombuso Mathibela 
Sonic Insurrections is a series of public gatherings that present sound and listening as sites of affect, memory, solidarity, pulse, rhythm and spirituality. We delve into sound for its history, situatedness and processes to map out an ‘otherwise’.  
From the standpoint of thinking of ‘an otherwise’ we affirm attempts to undo the definition of heritage as “denoting or relating to special architectural, historical or natural values that are preserved for the nation.” With this definition, we come to notions of heritage as material, historical and as part of world-making and nation-building. However, nation-building is fraught with violence, war and anti-Blackness. If heritage is aligned with this context, what makes connection across borders possible? We do not have exact answers but we sense that music and sound perforate these demarcations allowing connectivity within Black communities and beyond.  


Hurting and Healing: Let’s Imagine a Different Heritage

19.3 - 28.8 2022 Hurting and Healing: Let’s Imagine a Different Heritage
This spring's exhibition at Tensta konsthall poses the following question: How can the understanding of cultural heritage be decolonized by societies and organizations shaped by European knowledge systems? In this project, Charles Esche, director of the Van Abbemuseum and Tensta konsthall engage in dialogue with a number of artworks, artists, researchers and guest curators with the purpose of looking closer at how western-centric perception of cultural heritage can be challenged and redefined.

Opening program Saturday 19.3:
Doors open 12
12 - 14 For children: Watercolor workshop under the guidance of our art mediator George Chamoun
15 Hurting and Healing: Rethinking heritage today. Conversation with the exhibition curator Charles Esche, Tensta konsthall’s curator Susanne Ewerlöf, Alessandro Petti & Sandi Hilal (DAAR), Renzo Martens, Katarina Pirak Sikku, Dina El Kaisy Friemuth and all artists present. In English 
Presentation of the program Sonic Insurrections curated by Tawanda Appiah and Mmabatho Thobejane  
17 Al Madhafah invites you to visit a number of Tensta’s citizens who will open up their homes for the evening. Each host can welcome a small group of guests and will serve tea and delicious vegetarian food. Once there, you will have the chance to see DAAR’s (Sandi Hilal / Alessandro Petti) project Refugee Heritage in the form of unique books that represent the Palestinan villages from which people were expelled in 1948. Please note, to participate you need to register. Send an email to Read more here. 
During the opening Tensta konsthall’s staff is available in the exhibition for spontaneous introductions in Swedish, English, Arabic and Somali. 



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.  


13.6 – 12.12 2020: The Little Gallery - Body to Body New work by Åsa Norberg & Jennie Sundén
In their practice, the artist duo Åsa Norberg and Jennie Sundén, unite textile history with pedagogical innovators throughout time. As curious researchers, they dive into different pedagogical worlds of ideas, dealing with the connections between play, democracy and the building of a community as a contrast to authoritarian methods and fixed truths. 



Tuesdays and Thursdays 13:00–16:00 Three times a week women from the Järva area meet at Tensta konsthall to work with different kinds of crafts. Through joint handiwork, a safe space is made possible where conversation and exchange of experience is at the center. The craftsmanship skills that women in the group already have is picked up and the teacher role alternates between the participants. 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.



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.


Art Club

Thursdays 15:30–17:00 
In the Autumn of 2017, a new art club was founded at Tensta konsthall through the initiative of a ten-year-old
 art enthusiast from Tensta. The club is for children ages 9–12, and gathers once a week to try out different artistic techniques and materials, meet artists, make excursions and talk about art, always stemming from the current exhibitions. In collaboration with Kulturskolan Järva, membership registration can be made with 


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.


Nordic art network

New nordic network formed to investigate significance of art centers. What is the significance of a place of art? And can it be measured? In our polarized times the function of the small contemporary art institutions as places for critical reflection and exchange of experience is more relevant than ever. But in spite of their critical purpose, these institutions are often underfinanced and their experience ignored. Why?


k.ö.k (Women Desire Collectivity)

Ongoing k.ö.k (Kvinnor önskar kollektivitet – Women Desire Collectivity) experiments with ways to build a feminist institution from within the existing community of The Women’s Centre in Tensta-Hjulsta.


Citizen to Citizen

Tuesdays 12:00–14:00 Citizens to Citizen wants to create a venue for newcomers who need support and knowledge of the community in Sweden. It is an advisory activity that can include everything from government contacts and language training to mediation between people with similar backgrounds. The members of the group also meet in a common conversation about art and social issues. Under the leadership of Fahyma Alnablsi. To participate and for further info, contact


Klister report: Inga undantag (No Exceptions)

The Art Detectives

Ongoing Under the guidance of artist Pia Sandström and architect Stefan Petersson, students and teachers will become “art detectives” and set off in search of art works at their own schools—in the cafeteria, the corridors, the basement, the staff room, or the schoolyard. Have we seen these works of art before? How long have they been here? Who are the artists behind them? What is our relationship to them?



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.


Ongoing Tensta konsthall's new website and a communication strategy is specific for the art space and its program. Design by Amsterdam-based design studio Metahaven.


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: Swedish Language Café

Fridays and Sundays 14:00–17:00 

Every Friday and Sunday afternoon a Language Café led by Fahyma Alnablsi will be arranged. The Language Café welcomes those who wish to learn the basics of the Swedish and Arabic language, meet new friends and share experiences and ideas. Especially welcome are those students who are currently outside the Swedish education system while awaiting asylum. During the meetings we will practice grammar, socialize, read simple books and do conversational exercises. This fall we are looking for Swedish-speaking volunteers. If you are interested in participating, contact


Homework assistance Individuell människohjälp

Every Wednesday 16:30–18:30 Since the 1990s Individuell människohjälp (IM) has arranged Homework Assistance at Tensta Library. During the autumn the activities also take place at Tensta konsthall. Volunteers provide additional support for school work, primarily for children and youth in the area. From the start, the purpose of Homework Assistance has been to promote education on an equal basis, regardless of native language. Homework assistance is aimed at young people in the neighborhood aged 11–20 years and takes place in The Classroom in the art space.


The Silent University

The Silent University is initiated by artist Ahmet Ögüt and started in Stockholm as part of Tensta Musuem: Reports from new Sweden fall 2013. The Silent University is an autonomous knowledge exchange platform by and for refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants who have had a professional life and academic training in their home countries, but are unable to use their skills or professional training in Sweden due to a variety of reasons related to their status. The Silent University aims to address and reactivate the knowledge of the participants and attempt to make systemic failure apparent.


Parents group with Rädda Barnen

One Tuesday a month 17:30–19:30 Parents group with Rädda Barnen. One Tuesday evening every month Rädda barnen (Save the Children) organizes Parenting Forum at Tensta Konsthall. The Rädda barnen parents group meets at Tensta konsthall, providing a place for parents to meet, have discussions, and gain new experiences and knowledge. The meetings are free with complimentary refreshments. Each session focuses on different themes, such as the housing situation in Järva, local politics, or parenting and gender equality, and invited guests offer expertise in the different subjects.



Ongoing Cluster is a network of eight internationally operating contemporary visual art organisations situated in residential areas on the peripheries of major European cities (plus one in Holon, an industrial zone outside of Tel Aviv). Each of these organisations are actively involved in their local contexts, fostering their embeddedness within their surroundings.



Ongoing from September 2012 The network Klister is a nationwide network for small and medium-sized contemporary art institutions in Sweden. Klister seeks to highlight the role of smaller contemporary art institutions in society.


The Sibling Art Centers

Ongoing The network of sibling art centers in Stockholm. The Sibling Art Centers form a network of smaller contemporary art centers in Stockholm and include Botkyrka konsthall, Konsthall C, Marabouparken and Tensta konsthall.  The art centers meet regularly to exchange ideas and organize events that are pertinent to cultural policies. 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.

11.6 - 15.11 2020
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.

A Different look at...Frescati

11.5 5 2022 - 7:30PM A Different Look at… Frescati
In the area around Stockholm University we are looking for traces of scientists and colonisers but also for centuries of Sámi presence. We welcome you to participate in a performative walk with artist Hanni Kamaly, curator student Lina Aastrup and archeologist Jonas Monié Nordin, Stockholm University. Artist Malin Lin Nordström contributes a sound piece.
A Different Look at… Frescati. A Performative Walk in Two Acts
If we look around, what do we see? What do the monuments and the places surrounding the university tell us? When were the monuments erected, why and by whom? How were the places named, what do they say to us today?


Higher seminar and the book launch of Refugee Heritage by DAAR

24.5 2022 2 - 5PM Higher seminar and the book launch of Refugee Heritage by DAAR

The Royal Institute of Art and Tensta konsthall are inviting you to a higher seminar and the book launch of Refugee Heritage by DAAR – Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti, on May 24, 2–5 pm at Tensta konsthall within the frame of the group exhibition Hurting and Healing: Let’s Imagine a Different Heritage.
Starting from the book-dossier and the installation Refugee Heritage at Tensta konsthall, the seminar will revolve around the following fundamental questions: who has the right to define what constitutes heritage? How can modernist and patriarchal conception of heritage be challenged? Are there other forms of heritage outside the nation-state that include all the people who belong to more than one place simultaneously?
