About


Tina Enghoff is a visual artist who is based in Copenhagen. She has a background in a lens-based artistic practice focused on critical approaches towards narration, photojournalism, and the notion of evidence alongside initiating projects that revolve around community involvement, collaborations, and site-specific artistic activism. Her work is situated within the Nordic context of colonialism, the institutional violence of the welfare state, and the power-structures of the archive. The multiplicity of entry points, resistance to fixed forms of representation, and public engagement play a central role in the process of the visual expression of her projects and the development of strategies of action, gathering, resilience, collective deep listening, and care.
