A I S T I T / ​coming to our senses

How can art awaken us and guide us to our sensory experiences of the world? A I S T I T / coming to our senses explores the complexities of perception and will be presented in five countries in 2021–2022.

A I S T I T / ​coming to our senses​ sets its course to explore the complexity and wonder of our sensory perceptions and how they shape us as humans. Visual artist Hans Rosenström together with curator and choreographer Satu Herrala were invited to explore the topic of “senses” (“aistit” in Finnish) by the Finnish Institutes in Germany, Benelux, France and London. By bringing together different artists with a variety of visual and performative practices, A I S T I T unfolds a fragile world that is interconnected and full of nuance.

A I S T I T / ​coming to our senses takes place in Paris, Berlin, London, Helsinki and Belgium in 2021 and in January 2022. Newly commissioned artworks, as well as adaptations of existing works, will be shown in each city by artists whose practices are very rooted in the sensorial. A unique programme with additional artists will be presented in each location, in collaboration with local institutions and festivals.

A I S T I T is generously supported by the Alfred Kordelin Foundation, the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation, the Ministry of Education and Culture (Finland), The Niilo Helander Foundation and Saastamoinen Foundation.
