Collection in Kiasma demonstrates how the passion of a private individual can become an important part of an entire nation s heritage. It can also share joy and perceptions with the audience through history, change forms and communicate in increasing numbers of languages in a changing world. Through it culture can reflect its own times and store messages from the past. Its deepest meaning, however, is personal to both the collector and the viewer – the interpretation of meaning is always one s own. -Berndt Arell-
The catalogue includes famous artists like Richard Serra, Wolfgang Laib, Louise Bourgeois and many more.
