Baby Fat is an exhibition that takes off in the little girls’ room, but is a coming of age story about finding one’s place in a now grown-up body, and about breaking ties with the inner child.

No previous generation has been growing up in a society that changes as rapidly as today. Never before have we been exposed to these extensive amounts of sensory input, information, dreams and devastation. Nor have we in decades experienced the world in such a politically fragile state. It’s creepy, it’s pastel and it’s twisted – like a wonderland backdrop, where the desire to belong blends with the ambivalence of constantly needing to revolt against it all.

Bim Eriksson is a comics artist, political debater and a graphic activist. Last year, she released the book ”Det kändes lugnt när mina känslor dog” that is available in Labyrint.

OPENING: Wednesday 15 March, 5 – 9 PM.

Exhibition continues until 30 April.

Jonatan Carlsson has during the last few years documented his many trips throughout North America. Like the mythical Hobo, he has been train hopping railroad freight cars to see where they might take him. In doing so, he is following the long tradition of freedom-seeking individuals that have claimed their space in literature and arts, whilst considered deviant by society. This exhibition presents an extensive collage including photos, films and objects. We also get glimpses of Jonatan’s latest trip featuring the presidential election and the protests in Standing Rock.

Jonatan Carlsson is a graffiti-painting photographer that recently released the photography zine “A Swedish fish across America” that will also be on display in this exhibition.

Welcome to Residence Botkyrka where curator Maryam Omrani presents the project “I always pretend I don’t care” including works by Behzad Khosravi Noori, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyen and Ulrika Flink. A collaboration between Residence Botkyrka and AllArtNow.

Saturday 6 May, 4-6 PM
Residence Botkyrka’s apartment on Krögarvägen 26 in Fittja.

“The project is initiated from the point of view of a migrant who tries to explore the life in the new society. It also comes from the differences that she or he may experience between the imagined Europe and the real Europe. Some of the migrants had experienced European cultures through cinema and literature. For them Europe was imagined in terms of modern life and new ideas and also as a guardian of the Human Rights, progress, and justice. In the process of integration in the host society, a migrant is forced to redefine herself or himself, and this is the moment that one feels the power of the “gaze”, the power of judgmental and discriminatory look.

The departure point of this project is a short extract from Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, a movie by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1973), the sequence mediated between the curator, invited artists and the anthropologist to put in to words their relation in to this sequence. After forty years Fassbinder’s film is still of high relevance when it comes to the issues of migration, labor, gender, and racialization in the current Europe. After the World War II many Western European countries launched guest-worker programs. Hundred thousands of men and women were invited to these countries including Sweden, to work in industries. In the early 1980s when the mode of production was changed and relocated to other countries and continents, the demand for the labor force diminished. Migration, however, has not diminished but its form changed. Nevertheless, the migrant as the Other remained unchanged as a stigmatized figure.”
– Maryam Omrani

Behzad Khosravi Noori, May 2016
Some Facts, One Fiction
By looking at Rainer Werner Fassbinder famous film: Ali:fear eats the souls, Some fact, one fiction fictionally investigates how being included in the body politic can be a form of social control and exclusion. It will make a connection with Bony M. a German vocal group created by Frank Farian in the late 70th in order to address the complexity of representation of the other and general notion of othering in the late 70th in Germany and therefore searching the notion of sexuality and whiteness in the postwar German society. By reediting a sequence of film, it tries to bring a question of how one can look at identity politics in relation to narration, fact and fiction, phan-tasmagoria and the politics of here and there.

Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyen, May 2016
Troubling Silence
According to professor Asia Loomba, “colonialism was the midwife that assisted at the birth of European capitalism, or that without colonial expansion the transition to capitalism could not have taken place in Europe.” In light of this paradigm shift, racism was an integral feature in the development of capitalism as a world system. In the current stage of global economy, its economic rationale instills high productivity in compressed time frames for its workers. The isolating effects and embodied work conditions of such increasing demands crystallize a vague sense of individual responsibility into free market economic imperatives while the happiness industry is on the rise. A group meditation, titled Troubling Silence, will be offered and the performance aims to examine regimes of labour, the gaze and alterity.

Maryam Omrani is a writer and independent curator from Tehran but living in Stockholm.

Residence Botkyrka is continuing its collaboration with AllArtNow, the contemporary art centre located in Damascus until 2012 when the war closed it down. It now functions as a nomadic space throughout the world.

This spring, AllArtNow is presenting a series of programmes in Residence Botkyrka’s apartment on Krögarvägen 26 in Fittja. Everyone is invited for an afternoon get-together, meeting artists and neighbours, talks and presentations.

Juntan visits Botkyrka konsthall.

– It is an extension of the work we do, where we create workshops for ourselves, and others, more or less queer women and non-binary, with or without the experience of transitioning in to a new social gender where we are able to do our thing our way and on our own terms.

Juntan is workshops. Separatistic workshops for non cis-men. We focus on the art of graffiti and other forms of street art. We are an open source movement that we like to keep open source.

We exchange words of wisdom from old writers to new, we share techniques, keep each others back and we learn from the history of graffiti. The most important part for us is that we broaden the comunity and open up safe spaces for more storys to be told in public spaces.

Welcome to the world of Juntan! Together we are unbreakable!.

GIRL POWER
22 March, 5.30-8 PM
Film screening & talk at Botkyrka konsthall, Tumba

In the documentary film Girl Power, we follow graffiti artist Sany and her encounters with female writers around the world. It is a personal story that highlights the conflicts of everyday life; the expectations of society and the urge to follow one’s dream.

Sany started filming in 2009 with the aim to make female graffiti artists visible, and to talk about their struggles and stories. It took Sany seven years to complete the film and Girl Power is as much a story about graffiti as about passion and a person who refuses to give up her dream.

Following the screening, there will be a talk between Sany and Nachla Libre who both face preconceived ideas about who could be an artist. The talk will be centred around the essence of the film: sisterhood and solidarity against a male dominated society norm, as well as challenges in juggling everyday life with the love of your art.

Sany is a graffiti artist based in Prague, she has been painting since she was 15 years old. Sany learned filmmaking whilst travelling the world to document female writers and their stories. Girl Power is co-produced with Jan Zajíček.

Nachla Libre is a poet, artist, co-founder and artistic director of Revolution Poetry, a movement bringing young spoken word poets from the Swedish suburban areas to the general public awareness.

The talk is moderated by art historian and writer Macarena Dusant.

The programme is initiated by Macarena Dusant & Åsa Falewicz, and is produced by Macarena Dusant in collaboration with Botkyrka konsthall, Residence Botkyrka and the Czech Centre in Stockholm.
