HES, Helsinki Experimental Series:
From February to July 2020
This series intends to highlight and support experimentalism in music, sound and performance art in Helsinki, as well as it offers to the artists the possibility to share their work and to interact with other artists in situ.
The artistic organizations Interkult, Museum of Impossible Forms, Catalysti Association of Transcultural Artists and Korvat Auki Ensemble, together with the Sibelius Academy and the Laponia Improvisations school, merge forces to produce the Helsinki Experimental Series: A performative/listening experience.
Within the main aspects outlining the curatorial process of the series are: Improvisation, music genre and art aesthetics diversity, and re-thinking paradigms of expertise. Each performance of the series is produced in pairs, namely by Intelkult and other organization/institution that operates or suggests a specific location in Helsinki. This enables and encourages the audience to also experience different urban landscapes and to decentralise art spaces in the city.
