Soil Laboratory at the Soil Matters Exhibition

Design Museum, Helsinki

  • 22.10.2020–11.1.2021

The Soil Laboratory is located in the middle of the Soil Matters exhibition space, and it offers the visitors an opportunity to watch designers and artists at work.


This is an experimental, collective working space where the ceramic artists featured in the Soil Matters exhibition reflect the impacts of human activity through their work. The understanding of soil and its materials is an integral approach and a tool in the work of ceramic artists whose work this venue will be hosting. In the Soil Laboratory, research, art and personal stories are used to dig deeper in this theme: the collective research process makes it possible for understanding to grow during the process.
