The strangeness of everyday life is revealed and the line between fact and fiction is blurred when spaces and the people in them are examined from a different perspective or focusing on the smallest details. The Everyday Strangeness online exhibition opens the collection activities of Helsinki City Museum and HAM Helsinki Art Museum to the public through a common theme.
The online exhibition features photographs from Helsinki City Museum’s collections documenting life in Helsinki during the coronavirus pandemic and a video art installation from HAM’s collections. Employing a similar tone, the photographs and video pieces challenge viewers to look beyond routines.
