Gesture I: Rehearsing Dialogues

Frame Contemporary Art Finland

Sep 10 – 14, 2019 | 10 am – 1 pm

The First gesture of Hospitality is to invite and welcome people into one’s own space, of relinquishing agency and authorship

Museum of Impossible Forms welcomes and opens its doors to the organisers, invited speakers, and guests of Frame Contemporary Art Finland’s ‘Rehearsing Dialogues’, a series of conversations, discussions, presentations, and happenings performed daily.

For Gathering for Rehearsing Hospitalities, Museum of Impossible Forms will non-perform ‘A series of soft gestures towards Hospitality’ These gestures will be the result of direct/indirect collaborations between Frame Contemporary Art Finland, Museum of Impossible Forms, nynnyt, Asematila, Artist Collective Bread Omens (consisting of Jani Anders Purhonen and Elena Rantasuo), Heidi Hänninen, Bread makers from Tikke Restaurant, as well as other invited guests and participants from Kontula.

Gesture I: Rehearsing Dialogues is part of Frame Contemporary Art Finland's public programme Gathering for Rehearsing Hospitalities, taking place in Helsinki, Finland, 9–14 September. It brings together local and international arts audiences for a week of interactions and dialogues.

Museum of Impossible Forms is a cultural space, located in Kontula, Helsinki. It is a contested Space and it represents a contact zone, a space of unlearning, formulating identity constructs, norm-critical consciousness and critical thinking. Impossible Forms are those that erase and facilitate the process of transgressing the boundaries/borders between art, politics, practice, theory, the artist and the spectator. For 2019-2020, Museum of Impossible Forms operates under the curatorial theme of ‘The Atlas of Lost Beliefs (For Insurgents, Citizens and Untitled Bodies)’

Museum of Impossible Formsis a safer space. It follows safer space policies to create a welcoming, inclusive, awesome environment.

Events at the Museum of Impossible Forms are completely free and accessible without prior booking.

Museum of Impossible Forms is accessible by lift with thresholds up to 4cm on the way. The toilet has no thresholds but is not spacious enough to meet accessibility standards. The nearest accessible toilet is located at Kontula metro station.
