Minna Henriksson: Public Lecture
Minna Henriksson at Summer School as School 2021
August 10, 2021, 19:00
Venue: Boxing Club

Minna Henriksson: I will present various projects from 2005 to today, where I have visualised networks, connections and phenomena in contemporary art scenes. Most recently I have done mappings of the evolution of the (pseudo-)scientific discipline of race science. In the presentation I will speak about the urge to do these mappings, the methods I have chosen and the visual outcomes, as well as the impacts and consequences of exhibiting them.

Minna Henriksson (b. 1976, Oulu, lives in Helsinki) is a visual artist who works with a disparate range of tools including text, drawing, linocut and photography. She studied art in Brighton, Helsinki and Malmö.
Her work is often collaborative, and relates to the anti-racist, leftist and feminist struggles. In recent years her work has often dealt with archives and histories. Her work is research based and engages with covert political processes that appear to be neutral or natural.

In 2017 Henriksson was awarded with the Anni and Heinrich Sussmann Award of artistic work committed to the ideal of democracy and antifascism.
