Loving Women

Gallery Elverket , Raasepori

  • 8.10.2021–30.4.2022

Edith Hammar, Ester Helenius, Emma Helle, Marie Heg, Tove Jansson


Finland is one of the few countries where both male and female homosexuality were illegal and punishable offences (from 1894 until 1971). This exhibition celebrates the decriminalization of homosexuality in 1971, but it also reminds us that, even today, the spectrum of sexualities and genders is still a target of prejudice and discrimination.

Many publications and exhibitions dealing with the history of homosexuality have paid less attention to love between women than to that between men. Loving Women exhibition is based on the work of five artists and takes us on a journey into love between women and the various forms that it takes.
