Agenda TeXt - window exhibition 2022

While our exhibition room is closed during the summer holidays, Fotogalleriet and Agenda X invite visitors and passersby to a text-based exhibition installed in our windows in the heart of Oslo, open 24 hours a day! The exhibition consists of text, photos and videos available via QR code.

The texts are part of the project Agenda teXt under the auspices of Oslo's Anti-Racist Center's youth department, Agenda X. They were submitted by young people between 13 and 26 years of age, and are created through courses, individual guidance and competitions. Agenda teXt is an interdisciplinary and process-based initiative that promotes young voices through art and culture. The initiative unites different branches of art, and results in productions that are displayed in galleries, urban spaces, on stage, screen, website and the print between two binders. Agenda teXt is based on youth participation, and involves professional artists, supervisors and relevant art and cultural arenas.

Exhibited texts are by Naomi Medina, Saffa, Amanda Anvar, Rahel Beraki, Fatima Talia, Farhad Soufi, Sana El Moussaoui, D4NC3 and Momina Hassan, in addition to QR codes that lead to the project's website with works by SAK, Labeebah Qureshi, Zahra Al-Shorayer, Asha Abullahi, Oda Paaske, Shayma Abubaker Nuur, Abdirahmaan Hasan, Ayan Ahmed Arale, Ameli, Selma Helene Skaret Kielland and Fariha Fatima Malik.

The texts are shown in Fotogalleriets's windows facing Møllergata in the heart of Oslo from Friday 1 July to Monday 22 August 2022.

Agenda X has worked since 1998 to create opportunities for and with young people who grow up in a multicultural environment. Our vision is a socially just society where all young people, regardless of background, are active participants and providers of premises in their own lives, in society and in the field of art and culture. The work is based on principles of anti-racism, equal opportunities, youth participation, volunteering, the young-to-young method, empowerment, as well as building and making role models visible. The work includes several different social and art and cultural initiatives.
