EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo, Finland, always on display

What does it mean to be human, and what is humanity? The works in the exhibition reflect on the meaning of individual experience, morality, identity and our relationship with others, the environment and time.

When we encounter a work of art, the encounter itself invokes the theme of humanity. Our private reality intersects with the fictive world created by the artist, which can be a challenging experience – physically, spatially or intellectually. We become part of the work as we mirror our private experience against the real world and reality as it is mirrored in the artwork.

The exhibition includes EMMA’s state-of-the-art media space presenting the Saastamoinen Foundation’s latest media art acquisitions.

Curated by Pilvi Kalhama, Päivi Karttunen and Henna Paunu, the exhibition opened in 2014 and is re-curated at regular intervals.
