Who Is an Animal?

HAM Helsinki Art Museum, Helsinki

  • 17.5.2024–18.8.2024

The exhibition Who is an Animal? invites visitors to stop and look at the animal as a source of artistic fascination down through the years, while remaining mysterious and inexplicable.


Who Is an Animal? draws attention to how artists strive even more to break the power structure between humans and other animals, and make visible what unites us. Its 80 works are grouped into themes that serve as points of discussion for various topics, such as how animals are depicted, their habitats, mistreatment, coexistence, and agency.

The exhibition is located in one of HAMs grand arched halls and is primarily based on HAMs art collection – property of all Helsinki residents. It features works by numerous artists including Jasmin Anoschkin, Eeva-Leena Eklund, Terike Haapoja, Appu Jasu, Anne Koskis, Aura Kotkavirta, Paula Lehtonen, Maija Luutonen, Esko Mnnikk, Tuula Nrhinen, Dennis Oppenheim, Stiina Saaristo, Pentti Sammallahti, and Victor Westerholm.
