(movement, 1871-present)

The concept of “The Helsinki School” is not defined by a specific discipline (but mainly photography), nationality or geographic region. It represents an approach, a way of thinking that has evolved out of a process of teaching at the Aalto University School of Art and Design, where each generation is given the chance to invent themselves.

Now the internationally acknowledged artists are gathered together in extensive exhibitions travelling around the world. The exhibitions are curated by Timothy Persons. These exhibitions have established the Helsinki School as a unique approach in how to teach and apply use of the camera as a conceptual tool. The Helsinki School includes both photographs and videos from selected artists who have attended, graduated from or taught at the Aalto University School of Art and Design.
