Finnish Experimental Shorts

Curated by Heather Kapplow

Made up of some of Finland's most cutting edge experimental film and video works, this retrospective reaches beyond narrative and documentary, beyond the American perspective, using performance art as a route into experimental time-based work.

Works being screened were created between 1978 and 2005, and include artists: Mervi Kytosalmi, Teemo Maki, Roi Vaara, Minna Souniemi, Maria Dunker, Mark Lampisuo, Hanna Maria Antilla, Juha van Ingen, and Pekka Sassi.
