THE HELSINKI BIENNIAL ART MEDIATION FORUM 2023: An Anthology
Excited to be announcing a new publication, launched as part of the Helsinki Biennial x ViCCA collaboration. The Helsinki Biennial Art Mediation Forum 2023: An Anthology is a compilation of newly commissioned essays, bringing together perspectives from established contributors in the field of curating along with five creative texts written by ViCCA Master’s students.
The texts in this publication address the central themes of the biennial - contamination, regeneration, agency and computation - and provide an exploration of possible new directions capable of responding to an increasingly complex world, in reference to the Helsinki Biennial's title and main inquiries.
The Anthology is part of The Helsinki Biennial Mediation Forum 2023, a project which focuses on mediation as an articulation space for the biennial’s themes and artistic contributions. Apart from the Anthology, the forum also presented the Helsinki Biennial Symposium, which took place in December 2022, and featured talks by Filipa Ramos, Adeena May and Lívia Nolasco-Rózsas. Ideas and directions emerging from the Symposium are further explored in this publication.
