Exhibition

The Public and the Hidden Finland

The exhibition celebrates the 100 years of Finland by portraying around one hundred pictures from the National Board of Antiquities’ spectacular picture collection of over 15 million pictures.

The pictures chosen for the exhibition portray the era of independence of Finland, and they either have not been exhibited earlier or have national importance. The pictures illustrate Finland's journey as it becomes a land of equality, wellbeing and togetherness.

The exhibition is built around six themes. The themes are education, war, race, equality and democracy, nature relationship and communality. Behind each theme’s success story lies some phenomena that we might have wanted to forget or hide. Therefore, the exhibition challenges us to discuss our history and the transparency of our times.

Besides, the exhibition portrays a picture installation of modern day Finland, in which everyone can take part in by uploading a picture in Instagram with the hashtag #Finland2117.
