Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review

Abstract

Celebrating the Helsinki School, the exhibition New Perspectives Through Photography – 25 years of the Helsinki School explores various approaches in how to visualize the passage of time.The Helsinki School is one of the most internationally known Finnish art phenomena. Representing a new approach to education and collaboration, the term refers to a selected group of photographers who took part in the teaching program of adjunct professor Timothy Persons at the University of Art and Design Helsinki (since 2010 Aalto University, School of Arts, Design & Architecture), starting from the early 1990s.There is no single red line that defines the Helsinki School’s contextual configuration; each generation is given the opportunity to invent themselves. What they all have in common is how they challenge and use the photographic process as a tool for thinking.New Perspectives Through Photography – 25 years of the Helsinki School features 28 artists representing six generations, all evolving from the Helsinki School. Artists: Elina Brotherus, Tiina Itkonen, Ulla Jokisalo, Jaakko Kahilaniemi, Aino Kannisto, Sanna Kannisto, Sandra Kantanen, Eeva Karhu, Pertti Kekarainen, Timo Kelaranta, Ville Kumpulainen, Hilla Kurki, Milja Laurila, Janne Lehtinen, Ville Lenkkeri, Anni Leppälä, Kira Leskinen, Niko Luoma, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, Rainer Paananen, Nelli Palomäki, Jyrki Parantainen, Jorma Puranen, Riitta Päiväläinen, Mikko Rikala, Noora Sandgren, Jari Silomäki, Santeri Tuori, Niina Vatanen.
