Join us for a Warm Up at the Fittja Kitchen!
Saturday, 21 April at 1 – 4 PM. Find us here!

Spring has sprung, and we are warming up the Fittja Kitchen with a BBQ, paintings and performances by guest artists: Diana Jabi, Rezan Arab and Nisrine Boukhari. The Fittja Kitchen is undergoing a spring clean and will see new paintings on the containers, as well as an outdoor oven that will be ready this summer.

The Fittja Kitchen is Botkyrka konsthall’s programme through community gatherings, exchange of ideas and exploring new forms of art in the public space. This summer’s season will invite residents, artists and others to activate the space with a variety of workshops, get-togethers and art projects, and end with the festival: Fittja, Food & Art on 15th September.

This programme is co-organised with AllArtNow and curator Abir Boukhari, and is part of Residence Botkyrka’s “Developing Nordic Cities” that is supported by Nordic Culture Point.

På väg mot en ny konsthall i Fittja

Nu har Botkyrka konsthall påbörjat flytten mot en ny konsthall som byggs i Fittja och som står klar i början av 2019.

Under 2018 är konsthallen mobil och vi gör program med konstnärer och boende på flera platser i Botkyrka. Under sommaren aktiveras Fittjaköket med program och genom Residence Botkyrka får vi möta konstnärer.

Den pedagogiska verksamheten fortsätter som vanligt i ateljén i Tumba fram tills juni. Under påsklovet blir det workshop för hela familjen. För mer information om bokningar, kontakta Kerstin Gezelius (konstpedagog) på tel: 073-7727641.

Xetmuseet kommer att nyöppna i anslutning till Tumba bibliotek. Datum meddelas inom kort.

Vi uppdaterar vår grafiska profil och lanserar snart en ny hemsida. Följ oss på sociala medier (Instagram och Facebook) där vi uppdaterar om stort som smått, och prenumera på vårt digitala nyhetsbrev som kommer ut 1-2 gånger i månaden. Klicka här för länk till nyhetsbrevet.

Vi har även frågat vår konsthallschef, Miriam Andersson Blecher, om vad som händer med Botkyrka konsthall i samband med flytten. Läs intervjun här!

Third Space: Accessing Utopia, out of the body, Double Culture

The exhibition Third Space spans across place, politics and poetry bringing together works that relate to a social progress in that is currently transforming. It takes its point of departure from our globalised and segregated societies – where young voices tell of their experiences of being “in-between”, where cultures and languages meet and where new ones are formed. This is the context in which a conflicting and shifting condition of being both on the ‘inside’ as well as on the ‘outside’ exists. We treat the Third Space as a space of negotiating the imaginary – creating a continuous flow towards what has not yet become.

Botkyrka konsthall has been collaborating with the participating artists through Residence Botkyrka, the international residency programme in Fittja, and DIN, an art project organised by Orten i Fokus. The exhibition period will present a programme including the events: When does activism become a commodity? & What is solidarity in unequal societies? organised by Bathutäs (dates in January – February to be announced).

The title borrows from the postcolonial thinker Homi K Bhabha’s theory “The Third Space” that describes a space where cultures are influencing each other and new identities are formed.

The exhibition is Botkyrka konsthall’s final programme that takes place in Tumba before embarking on the journey towards a new art institution that opens up in Fittja in early 2019.

Accessing utopia (2017) is the latest work from the collaborative artistic research group Bathutäs. The piece Accessing utopia is based on interviews with young Swedish activists who have engaged in organizations dealing with the multiple expressions of racism and social injustice in the Swedish society. Using artistic research methodology the project articulates a narrative strategy which aims to put forward the complexities in the young people’s understanding of their own activism, and hence their political subjectivities. In the exhibition, Accessing Utopia is presented in a circular installation with five monitors, and will be accompanied by previous works and a programme.

Bathutäs is a collaboration between René León-Rosales, Ph. D in ethnology and head of research at the Mångkulturellt centrum and Behzad Khosravi-Noori, artist and writer currently holding a Ph. D position at Konstfack/KTH in Stockholm.

studio nāv “out of the body” Photo: Thomas Paltiel

studio nāv’s installation out of the body (2017) takes its outset in ‘movement’, and is authored through the trajectory of the underground and endoscope. From the body’s interior a subjective landscape is formed, in which incongruence and intuition dissolve the binaries ‘departure’ and ‘arrival’. Here, the acousmatic voice, once purposeful for the underground, negotiates a flow of relations without a given destination. out of the body is a spatial installation consisting of a video and two soundworks.

The piece is produced in collaboration with Mya Gomez, Houda Landolsi, Elisa Lévy and GlissantBot.

studio nāv is made up of Carl Fransson och Thomas Paltiel. In their work they act from the position of a critical spatial practice. At Botkyrka Konsthall they have also authored the exhibition’s scenography.

Alex Rodallec and Nabil Dorbane meet in the collaboration Double Culture (2017) featuring poetry and illustrations, text and sounds where a variety of languages and voices portray the experience of what is popularly called the “suburb” in both Sweden and France.

”What is the feeling of the suburb? A phenomenon easily recognized regardless of whether it is in France or Sweden. Areas that are largely populated by a working and lower class with a migration background. What are the pictures stuck with many of us who grew up in these places? What are the sounds and languages? The sorrow and joy? What is it that we carry within of being in between places, on borders? What are the feelings that colour our memories?”

Alex Rodallec is a poet, translator and editor at Kultwatch and the cultural magasine DIN. Nabil Dorbane is an illustrator, graphic designer and graffiti writer.

The exhibition Third Space is running until the 11th March in Botkyrka konsthall, Tumba.
