Finsk Form – an exhibition

1809 – 200 years ago – a Nordic union was separated into two countries: Finland and Sweden. These countries still share deep bonds of friendship and similar cultures, but unfortunately there is also much we do not know about each other. In Sweden, one of the areas of ignorance is the large arena of Finnish Form and Design…

...that is why ArtsNordica and Kapitän Designstudio, Örebro, plan to show an exhibition about Finnish Form and Design in Sweden in 2009!

This exhibition, Finsk Form, is later to be shown also to an international audience, in China.

Project “Friendship between the peoples – Amitié entre les peoples” took place in Malmö/ Sfax in 2007-08, bringing the people of two distant places closer through their shared love for art and culture!
