Description

The Otherland exhibition depicts an era when Finland did not yet exist as a nation. Otherland describes how the idea of being Finnish was born – and how it was constructed. This exhibition is about people and changes, and it shows the region’s international and diverse past from the 11th century through the times of Swedish and Russian rule up to the early days of Finland’s independence. The exhibition focuses on three main aspects: Humanity, Faith and We as Part of the World.

 

Medieval sculptures of saints, magic charms used by seers, textiles by Momman Siina from Huittinen, Elias Lönnrot’s slippers, children’s toys and many other items tell us about humanity and faith in recognisable and fascinating ways. As opposed to the expression people are so often used to seeing, the exhibition views history and power from the perspective of an ordinary person. The familiar narrative is shown in a new light, and the unquestioned truth about Finland’s history is subjected to alternative interpretations.
