Skaus is a collective founded by Norwegian artists Håvard Sagen, Mari Kolbeinson and Markus Bråten. Since their inception in 2019 Skaus have sought to explore the ways in which community understandings are acquired, challenged and changed within the theoretical frameworks and built environment of the cultural sphere. At the forefront of their methodology is a focus on sustainability and iteration; materials are recycled, and structures are aggregate forms. Their name is drawn from an ancient Norwegian dish that was tended and added to, boiled and served in an endless cycle. The skaus recipe traveled with sailors and spread throughout Europe and beyond.
