#aistitsensesA I S T I T / coming to our senses sets its course in an evolving one-year programme of exhibitions in five European cities to explore the complexity and wonder of our sensory perceptions and how they shape us as human beings.

The Finnish Institutes in the Benelux, France, Germany, and the UK and Ireland are proud to invite visual artist Hans Rosenström and curator and choreographer Satu Herrala to reflect on the topic of ‘senses’ (‘aistit’ in Finnish) and their physical, political and technological dimensions today. Bringing together multiple visual and performing artists working across different geographical locations, A I S T I T / coming to our senses unfolds a fragile world that is interconnected and full of nuances.

A I S T I T / coming to our senses gradually unfolds from March 2021 to February 2022 in Paris, London, Berlin, Helsinki, and Ghent. Newly commissioned artworks, as well as adaptations of existing works, will be shown in each city by artists whose practices are grounded in the sensorial and whose works nurture a mindful relationship with the world. The multifaceted programme, composed of a series of exhibitions, public artworks, performances, screenings and a catalogue publication, will be presented in collaboration with local art institutions and festivals. In 2021, with social distancing measures continuing globally, all the exhibition spaces (including public outdoor spaces) will comply with government regulations and guidance.

A I S T I T / coming to our senses with:
Maryan Abdulkarim & Sonya Lindfors / Etel Adnan & Simone Fattal / Monira Al Qadiri / Axel Antas / Terike Haapoja* / Anna Maria Häkkinen & Maija Mustonen / Christine Sun Kim / Kapwani Kiwanga / Kid Kokko* / Minna Långström / Dafna Maimon* / Laurent Millet / Kalle Nio & Hans Rosenström* / Laure Prouvost / Kati Roover

Ce dessin de la main d'Alvar Aalto de 1958 montre des esquisses pour des tables et des lampes destinées à la MLC, sur lequel apparaissent des esquisses pour l'immeuble Neue Vahr à Brême (1958-1962). Comme il travaillait à plusieurs projets à la fois, Aalto passait de l'un à l'autre sur la même grande feuille, où coexistent croquis de design et d'architecture.

As he worked on several projects at the same time, drawings of furniture, lamps and high-rise buildings coexist on the same big sheet.
