Island of Relations

As part of the eponymous course, fine arts students and the Praxis Master’s Programme students have examined the various dialogical and intersecting ecosystems on the Kuninkaansaari island: biological, ideological, historical, and socio-economic. The result was the emergence of sensitive site-specific works; interventions, iterations, and installations, as well as events that gently respond to these ecosystems.

Kuninkaansaari location, accessibility and precautions regarding COVID-19

All works and events in the Saari 2020 programme are free of charge, but a ticket is required for the ferry. We follow the Finnish government’s COVID-19 guidelines regarding hygiene and audience group sizes in all our events and performances. Preregistration is required for performances and events to ensure small groups. The ferry operator also follows COVID-19 guidelines.
