Metafin is an experimental exhibition, archive and publication project.

METAFIN project aims to approach the construct of “Finnishness” from a blurred angle as a cultural territory of the visual and forms of dispersed information. It investigates the thematic through experimental graphic design, exhibition practices, digital and analog archives, reproduction and critical writing.

To the public METAFIN seeks to function as a visually inclined starting point for conversations in the expanding and marginal definitions of Finnishness. For actors in art, design, culture, research and criticism the project works to develop a theoretical platform for observing, representing and working with the Finnish national identity, as well as an opportunity to participate in the discourse it generates.
