“When the prevailing reality can no longer be excluded from the consciousness and when being passive is no longer an option, collective energy embodies a mass response that is directed towards action. Momentum invites resistance and motion gathers movement. But can collective consciousness manufacture alliances? How can we redeem misplaced historical narratives? Can history speak for the present? Can it argue, quarrel, debate? Can it forgive? The ball may be in motion now, the culture rhetorics and contradictions are seen seeping through the porous layers, soon to resurface above ground.“
The theme of the exhibition of Videokanava deals with revolution, civic activism and change through four different curators through their own and their chosen video works. Videokanava will be held at outdoor screenings in Tampere, Finland since September 2018. Some spaces include the yard of Tampere Art Museum and in the new Cultural Center Laikku. From September onwards, videos are presented in various galleries and other cultural venues and events in Finland and abroad.
