With Linda Bournane Engelberth
Bilde Linda B ny

Welcome to a new edition of the lecture series 30:ten, where contemporary artists present their artistic practice in 30 minutes and ten pictures. In this edition you will meet Linda Bournane Engelberth.

Linda Bournane Engelberth

Linda Bournane Engelberth (b. 1977) is a Norwegian-Algerian visual artist who works with photography, installation and film. She stayed in Mexico for several years, where she was introduced to the camera as an artistic tool, before returning to Norway and establishing herself as an artist with a broad practice. Bournane Engelberth had a challenging upbringing in Groruddalen, a story which she has later used as a starting point for several artistic adaptations. Her artistic focus is on the dissemination of personal, subjective narratives with socio-political frameworks or gender discourse. As a film director, she currently has a collaboration with Elisa Fernanda Pirir and Mer Film as a producer. Her first short film, Never Look Back (2022), was screened at several international film festivals in 2022.

Bournane Engelberth has received several awards and prizes for his work. She has had a number of solo exhibitions since 2009 and has participated in collective exhibitions at a number of larger institutions such as Haus der Photographie/Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Photogallery Vienna, Henie Onstad Art Center and Bomuldfabrikken in Arendal.


The artist talks 30:ten invite you to exclusive insights into a series of contemporary art practices. Our student panel has selected eight active artists who, within thirty minutes and ten pictures, get to present themselves and their work. After the lectures, we will open for questions from the audience. The lectures are held one Tuesday a month in the KH cinema and are free and open to everyone.

For the occasion, Lofthus Samvirkelag offers an artist discount to all participants on presentation of a ticket.
