OUR STORY

REDAH began as a weekly critique session under the name fk-kollektiv, open to anyone who wanted to show their creative works, oer insight, or simply come and observe. It enticed amateurs and professional artists alike, keen on exploring new projects.


In our space, artists can develop film, scan, and print, allowing them to create artwork afordably. The melting pot of people is exciting, pushing artists to dive deeper in their work, gain a sense of community in the local art industry, and build the confidence to continue pursuing their creative passions.

REDAH blossomed into a thriving art store with a network of artists, such as photographers, sculptors, installation artists, illustrators, performers, and dancers - all running workshops, creating collaborations, and eliciting reactions and conversations.

We are an organically grown sphere that supports and breeds local art and artistic experiments. We engage in all practices with the knowledge that art can and should be progressive. We question the status quo and allow for new ways of thinking.
