Disconnected Space Exercise

The event is a part of Uniarts Helsinki’s fourth Research Pavilion, taking place in Hietsun Paviljonki and its surroundings in Helsinki 5 June – 29 August 2021.

Jaakko Ruuska Disconnected Space exercise in Suvilahti in 2020.

DISCONNECTED SPACE is a research event in the form of a playful, participatory performance, that studies the possibility for intercorporality in the pandemic situation. Durational event is based on a collective exercise of writing, reading & walking. The event is organised by the Toisissa tiloissa collective work group: doctoral student Jaakko Ruuska and performing artists Kati Korosuo and Timo Jokitalo. 

The event consists of preparatory school (60 min), that introduces hobos & their system of signs, collective exercise (4 hours) that takes place in the urban space, and re-reading event (60 min), in which the observations are shared. The last part is open for the public. There are breaks in between the phases.

The research event takes place in an urban space in English, and it is limited for six artist-researchers. The participation is free and available for fellow artist-researchers. Sign up well in advance by sending an email to: jaakko.ruuska@uniarts.fi.
