The trace event is based on a physical installation to be erected at Lapinlahti historical mental hospital in Helsinki, which presently is a civil society space for culture and mental well-being. The photographic material is selected from my photographs from several former or present crisis and conflict areas over the past 20 years. The related audio material will be researched and produced for this event.
Online is this blog, where texts briefly presenting the context will be interspersed with the audio-enriched photographs. My intention is that the blog as a platform allows for easy and in-depth commentaries, thus enriching the presentation with exchanges between study circle and summer session participants.
As the format of trace events also allow for “localised micro meet-ups” circle participants able to visit Helsinki are welcome to participate in a guided and video-documented tour on Friday, 31 July at 11:00 local time.
