2014 Exhibition: A Squatter At Tenthaus

A Squatter at Tenthaus was an incubator project that took place at Tenthaus Oslo from November 2013 to April 2014. The project aimed to facilitate discussions on the necessity of creating an interdisciplinary, arts research-based platform for visual arts in Livingstone, Zambia.

During the residency period, the project team took over Tenthaus and collected various resources to support their research, including artist books, catalogues, art theory, books on philosophy, visual culture, film theory, architecture, and design. The resources collected were intended to provide a foundation for building a sustainable arts platform in Livingstone, Zambia.

Through their exploration and research, the project team sought to address the challenges faced by visual artists in Zambia and to create 

opportunities for collaboration and cross-disciplinary engagement. A Squatter at Tenthaus represented a critical first step towards building a platform that could support artists and contribute to the growth and development of the arts in Zambia. Overall, the project was a successful incubator initiative that provided a solid foundation for the creation of an interdisciplinary arts platform in Livingstone, Zambia. The project team’s dedication to research and engagement laid the groundwork for future efforts to support and promote the arts in Zambia and beyond.
