Description

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.

The exhibition celebrates how ideas can be transformed through a shared collective dialogue. It combines new works and installations juxtaposed with historical pieces that exemplify how this unique educational platform has opened up new perspectives on how we experience photography. Through a selection from 180 artist’s monographic publications and press reviews this exhibition marks for the first time a focus on the historiography of the Helsinki School’s evolution and why it was able to become one of the longest sustainable photographic movements of its kind.
