Tenthaus Art Collective has been working together in various constellations since 2009. The collective is characterized by an open, process-oriented form of participation and collaboration. They focus on local contexts exploring collectivity and inclusion through different forms of engagement . Tenthaus began as an artists-in-schools project and over a decade later they continue to maintain strong relations to the community and works to cultivate and nurture its environment.
Today Tenthaus encompasses both a project room and an exhibition space, a mobile studio, and a wide range of curatorial projects. As a collective Tenthaus reimagines themselves and what it means to be artists working with the public, and what makes a relevant socially engaged practice today. The collective works with discursive events, radio, research, exchanges, workshops and exhibitions with an international orientation. Each of its members brings a distinct set of skills, practices and cultural knowledge.
The distinctive result of their collaborations and collective discussion is visible through their work.
Tenthaus is funded by Norsk Kulturråd (2016-2019, 2019-2022 Arrangørstøtte) and driftstøtte Oslo kommune, support for workshops by Sparebankstiftelsen 2021-2024 as well as various other project support.
