A I S T I T / coming to our senses sets its course in an evolving one-year programme of exhibitions in five European cities to explore the complexity and wonder of our sensory perceptions and how they shape us as human beings.
The Finnish Institutes in the Benelux, France, Germany, and the UK and Ireland are proud to invite visual artist Hans Rosenström and curator and choreographer Satu Herrala to reflect on the topic of ‘senses’ (‘aistit’ in Finnish) and their physical, political and technological dimensions today. Bringing together multiple visual and performing artists working across different geographical locations, A I S T I T / coming to our senses unfolds a fragile world that is interconnected and full of nuances.
The following artists will take part in the project: Maryan Abdulkarim & Sonya Lindfors / Etel Adnan & Simone Fattal / Monira Al Qadiri / Axel Antas / Terike Haapoja / Anna Maria Häkkinen & Maija Mustonen / Christine Sun Kim / Kapwani Kiwanga / Kid Kokko / Minna Långström / Dafna Maimon / Laurent Millet / Kalle Nio & Hans Rosenström / Laure Prouvost / Kati Roover
In Berlin, we look forward to a lot of program at KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art from May 22nd!
