TAMK Degree Program in Fine Art will present a Short Film evening STRANGE WALLS - Contemporary Video Art from Finland in collaboration with the Finnish Institute in Germany .
The Screening takes place at the Berlin gallery of the Finnish Institute on Thursday the 7th of February at the time of Berlinale Film Festival.
Community is in the central focus of this film evening. Questions these films often raise are how can you live as a part of a community or as an outsider, or how multilayered can relationships between people be? The scenes vary from conveyor belt to Finnish countryside house or to a traditional dancing hall.
The significance of contemporary art, visual art and media are especially emphasized in the Fine Art Studies at the University of Applied Sciences of Tampere (TAMK).
The short film selection presents among others performance art, narrative film, animation and documentary film. The films directed by the students and staff of the university of applied sciences analyze identity in relation to community and society: Past, history, family and community define the place and roles of a person.
The films will be shown in Finnish language with subtitles in English.
The artists in the screening are: Riikka Kuoppala, Päivi Hirsiaho, Fanni Niemi-Junkola, Tiina Lehikoinen, Martta Tuomaala, Viika Sankila, Mikko Keskiivari, Minna Suoniemi and Hinni Huttunen.
