The Helsinki School is a group show of young finnish artists, presented by Photology for the first time in Italy in November 2005. The concept of The Helsinki School is not defined by a specific artistic credo, or a specific geographical region. It represents an approach, a way of thinking that has evolved out of a process of teaching at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, where each generation of young artist is given a chance to be part of a reinvented touring exhibition. The basic approach in teaching at UAD to young art students is the use of the camera as a conceptual tool. The Helsinki School show is presently including both photographs and videos from selected artists such as Miklos Gaal, Ilkka Halso, Aino Kannisto, Pertti Kekarainen, Janne Lehtinen, Riitta Paivalainen, Jyrki Parantainen, Jorma Puranen, Heli Rekula and more. Conceived and curated by Timothy Persons this travelling exhibition has been shown by the Helsinki Finnish Museum of Photography, Stockholm Kulturhuset and Berlin Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, with two complete Hatje-Cantz catalogues. Photology has been touring the show in Milano in 2005 and Bologna in 2006 (exhibition still available).
