FIX: Care and Repair

Design Museum, Helsinki

  • 26.4.2024–5.1.2025

FIX: Care and Repair at the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Design Museum focuses on repair and maintenance while also exploring how the passage of time affects architecture and design.

 

The joint exhibition FIX: Care and Repair at the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Design Museum focuses on repair and maintenance while also exploring how the passage of time affects architecture and design.

Objects and buildings undergo constant change. They age, get dirty, and break. Maintaining and repairing things are active practices that reflect our prevailing values. What objects and things do we invest time and money in caring for? What is left outside the scope of care?

Maintenance-related work often takes place out of sight. The FIX exhibition places everyday tasks at the center of wonder. The exhibition features selected examples from the fields of architecture and design, along with four newly commissioned contemporary art installations. In their works, contemporary artists contemplate our relationship with dirt, power, and the seemingly mundane choices we make.

Designer Lauri Johanssons exhibition architecture, complete with plasterboard, also alludes to an ongoing renovation. It serves as a reminder that our shared world is never finished but constantly requires maintenance. Visitors are invited to contemplate questions of repair, cleaning, and upkeep, and to participate in events woven around the exhibition.

The exhibition has been curated by a multidisciplinary team from the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Design Museum, curators Kaisa Karvinen and Jutta Tynkkynen, exhibition producer Sara Martinsen, educational curator Hanna Kapanen and Manager of Learning and Public Programmes Jemina Vainikka Lindholm. The exhibition is designed by designer Lauri Johansson.
