Between Art and Reality

Fri 8.3. | 11:30–14:30 | Industry Centre: Vooninki | In Finnish

Seminar from 11:30–13:30
Networking event from 13:30–14:30

Just like documentarists, many media artists explore reality. What are the similarities and differences between the two? What could documentarists and media artists learn from each other? In the seminar talks and panel discussion, you will hear from artists working on the borders between the two fields. Reality art is approached from the point of view of both content and production.

The speakers include Pasi Hakkio, Hanna Hovitie, Sami van Ingen, Joel Karppanen, Sanna Kultanen, Milja-Liina Moilanen, Tytti Rantanen and Sampsa Virkajärvi. The panel is moderated by Tuuli Penttinen-Lampisuo.

The event is organised by Dokumenttikilta, a documentary filmmakers association, and the Centre for Finnish Media Art AV-arkki. The event is financed by AVEK and Dokumenttikilta.
