Nango often works in collaboration through various constellations such as FFB (an architecture collective he was a part of founding in 2010) and European Everything ( a performative platform formed by various european arts and craft people that don’t see themselves as representatives of any european nationstate). For the Iaspis residency Nango will be looking closer at the Swedish colonial history, more specifically through research on architectural material in the archives of ARKDES and Nordiska Museet.
