BERHUND – Fascinating Dogs in Art

Salo Art Museum Veturitalli (Roundhouse), Salo

  • 24.9.2022–8.1.2023


Humans and dogs have a shared history. During our coexistence, dogs have not only served as companions and co-workers, but also as a muse and inspiration for our deeds. berhund and other caninities tells about the unique nature of our relationship, presenting in a variety of ways the different roles that dogs have played in visual arts over the past 150 years. In visual arts, dogs convey a sense of our culture and reflect our society. Traditionally, art portraying dogs is associated with, among others, security, loyalty, companionship, assistance or sweetness. In addition to these, berhund talks about the political roles that dogs play and painful aspects in the ethics of breeding. It also delights the viewer with the tangibility of the work.

The exhibition, berhund – Fascinating Dogs in Art, presents the various roles dogs have played in visual art from the beginning of the common era up until today. The artworks are on loan from public collections in Finnish museums, galleries, foundations, and private
collections. The exhibition has been produced in cooperation between Salo Art Museum Veturitalli, Kouvola Art Museum Poikilo, and the Art Museums of Jyvskyl, Mikkeli and Kuopio.
