The Helsinki School artist Mikko Sinervo is one of the ten nominees to participate in the group exhibition NEW NORDIC PHOTOGRAPHY 2012 at Hasselblad Center from 08. June to 19. August 2012.
New Nordic Photography 2012 presents a multifaceted picture over the field of contemporary photography in the Nordic region. Present once more is the socially orientated documentary tradition that dominated last year´s exhibition, but this time nuanced to a higher degree by works that deal with photography´s role in science, theoretical reflections on the essence of photography itself and staged photography.
Selection of the participating artists was based on their interesting works. They portray existential questions about humankind in the universe, Europe´s altered geopolitical landscape, staged personal stories and reflections on the theory and history of photography. The project covers various photographic disciplines and together they draw an image of the topics that occupy today´s young photographers.
The exhibition is centred around the coveted Victor fellowships. Two participants will be offered the opportunity of further studies and a studio residency in countries outside the Nordic region: Glasgow School of Art or the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham and the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York.
