Four video works created during the lockdown last spring will be presented as a free outdoor screening at Musiikkitalo in Helsinki on Saturday 29th August, from 20–22.00.
The works were born out of The Finnish Cultural and Academic Institutes’ Together Alone open call. The Institutes launched the fast-paced open call in response to the Covid-19 crisis. The call was aimed at all Finnish and Finland-based professional artists who had lost work opportunities due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Finnish institutes advance international mobility, visibility and collaboration of Finnish professionals in the arts, culture and science. The open call especially looked for projects, which emphasised broad international collaboration – without physical contact.
The open call received 437 applications. Out of this pool of fantastic proposals, 20 projects that explore new artistic methods and ways of thinking were selected. Four video projects will be screened on Musiikkitalo’s media wall:
One screening set lasts 40 minutes. There will be three showings throughout the night, starting at 20.00, 20.40 and 21.20. Address: Musiikkitalo, Mannerheimintie 13 A, 00100 Helsinki.
