Arts Promotion Centre Finland’s National Council for Media Art justifies its choice: ′′Visual artist Hans Rosenström (b. 1978) is a long standing auteur with a subtle yet powerful artistic language. He uses technology in an absolutely content-oriented way, combining spatiality and sound in a skilful and unique manner. Rosenström’s open approach to different media and technical solutions is translated into holistic and aesthetically balanced artistic experiences. The power of Ronsenström’s works, moving both in an intellectual and emotional way, has also been noticed internationally.”
The National arts councils award 14 state prizes each year in the fields of architecture, cinema, the performing arts, literature, the visual arts, children’s culture, media art, multidisciplinary art, design, music and photographic art.

8 OCT – ongoing
Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection
EMMA, Espoo Museum of Modern Art
The sound installation Kaiken Osana / In Dependent Structures is now part of the ongoing Saastamoinen Foundation Colection exhibition Touch at EMMA.
Touch is a continuously re-curated exhibition that presents a curated pick of Finnish and international contemporary works from the Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection.
The new entity at the Touch exhibition is on display from 8th Oct onwards. The artworks on display examine the relationship between human, architecture and built environment.
Media works by Elina Brotherus and Artor Jesus Inkerö examine the relationship the human body has with architecture and cultural environment. Known for his site-specific work, Hans Rosentröm’s new sound installation is experienced in a space build specially for the work. The sound recording is taped on the spot using binaural technique and a phantom head. Simulating the real listening situation, the sound installation creates a strong sense of another’s presence.
The new entity includes also Alicja Kwade’s Trans-For-Men (2018) and Olafur Eliasson’s Pentagonal Mirror Tunnel (2017), both of which are commissioned by Saastamoinen Foundation and made specially with EMMA’s unique architecture and environment in mind.
Human, architecture and built environment includes works by the following artists: Elina Brotherus, Olafur Eliasson, Susanne Gottberg, Radoslaw Gryta, Tommi Grönlund & Petteri Nisunen, Heli Hiltunen, Nanna Hänninen, Artor Jesus Inkerö, Hannu Karjalainen, Pertti Kekarainen, Ola Kolehmainen, Vladimir Kopteff, Alicja Kwade, Tatsuo Miyajima, Pekka Nevalainen, Tiina Pyykkinen, Silja Rantanen and Hans Rosenström.
The newest section is curated by Laura Kokkonen, Ingrid Orman and Henna Paunu from EMMA.

Future Delay is a group exhibition at Helsinki Contemporary for which I made a new sound installation, ‘Suusta suuhun’, a piece that talks about our porous bodies.

NO LAND IS AN ISLAND
Kuntsi Museum of Moderna Art

It suggests that everything exists in the world together, entwined and interdependent, all actions have consequences and that nothing can survive in isolation.

North Coast Art Triennale
At the 2019 North Coast Art Triennal, artists from Denmark and the other Nordic countries will explore the regional, historic and specific conceptual qualities of the term heritage based on the new Kongernes Nordsjælland (Royal North Sjælland) National Park and the diversity of cultural history that is embedded there. Based on this, the artists will create numerous artworks for the specific sites in interaction and exchange with the residents and with the collaboration and dialogue partners of Gribskov’s arts and cultural institutions.
Curated by Carina Zunino
“Heritage and cultural heritage are extensive concepts that include both the material world that is left to posterity but also the more intangible and abstract aspects, the cultural elements of human consciousness such as language, philosophy of life and forms of interaction that comprise narratives about the past and that also include a common foundation about the overall framework, such as the “Nordic” setting, and minor differences from one region to another in a small country such as Denmark.
The migration of people and the many global communication networks today create a need for us to carefully consider our origin and personal identity. But heritage also helps to embed us in time. Heritage reminds us who we once were and sets a direction for who we can become.”

Anatomy of Political Melancholy II
Schwarz Foundation, Athens Conservtoire
Participating Artists: Katerina Apostolidou, Marc Bauerm Marianna Christofides, Eirene Efstathiou, Marina Gioti, Sara Sejin Chang [Sara Van der Heide], Jan Peter Hammer, Sven Johne, Yorgos Karailias, Spiros Kay, Ariane Loze, Depression Era , Adrian Melis, Tom Molloy, Jennifer Nelson, George Prinos, Chrysa Romanou, Hans Rosenström, Georges Salameh, Nestori Syrjälä, Thu Van Tran, Dimitris Tsoumplekas, Bram Van Meervelde
The Schwarz Foundation is pleased to announce its 1st major exhibition in #Athens, following the opening of the Foundation’s Art Space Pythagorion in #Samos in 2012. The exhibition, entitled Anatomy of Political Melancholy, probes the increasing and widespread loss of faith in politics and politicians today. The 24 international artists and one artist’s group in it probe different aspects of our current political discontent, explore its effects on the older and the younger generation, and examine how this disillusionment with our present political condition in Europe has created a sense of impasse and how it manifests itself in our everyday lives and in the public domain. Philosopher Lieven de Cauter has called this phenomenon ‘political melancholy’.

Curated by Gundega Laivinas
“In the world overwhelmed by visual culture our eyesight gradually becomes detached from other senses. What we see has no influence on what we feel or think. In the reality filled with endless noise our gift of hearing loses its sharpness and we cease to listen. As Vooruit opens its doors for another challenging season, this is an invitation to stand still and to practice listening as it will sustain us for the season ahead, both at Vooruit and outside in the real world. To share the space built from sound, words and stories, to feel its tactility. To experience the moment when the sense of hearing becomes the skill of listening.”

1st Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art
Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More
Curated by Katerina Gregos
Speed is the form of ecstasy the technical revolution has bestowed on man… He is caught in a fragment of time cut off from both the past and the future; he is wrenched from the continuity of time; he is outside time…
—Milan Kundera, Slowness, 1996
Change is a constant and imperceptible process. Nothing remains the same and yet it often feels as if things are fixed, solid certainties. Change operates in strange ways. ‘Ta panta rhei’ (everything flows), the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus pointed out, meaning that: everything is constantly changing, from the smallest organic particle to the whole universe. According to him, every seemingly stable object is ultimately a figment of one’s imagination; only change itself is real, being constant and in eternal flux, like the continuous flow of the river, which always renews itself and only appears to remain the same over time. Until recently – and excluding those rarer radical moments of personal, social or political transformation – change has appeared to creep up on us slowly. But then it sometimes happens that one day we ‘wake up’ and experience a sudden break in consciousness. It abruptly dawns on us that our world has changed beyond recognition. We feel as if we have been thrust into the future, unwittingly. In recent years, and particularly since the advent of the technological revolution, it seems that even the Heraclitan constant flow of things has turned into a torrent. Our world seems to be ever accelerating. As James Gleick argues in Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything: “We have reached the epoch of the nanosecond. This is the heyday of speed”. The 1st Riga Biennial will reflect on the phenomenon of change – how it is anticipated, experienced, grasped, assimilated and dealt with at this time of accelerated transitions and the increasing speeding up of our lives.

Chart Art Fair
Duration: 29’16’’ Loop
2016’s CHART SPECIAL ART PROGRAM premieres Off Seasons – a collaborative project between Finnish-Swedish artist Hans Rosenström and the Danish artist duo Stormglas (Andreas Borregaard and Mikkel Sørensen). Off Seasons is a reinterpretation of Stormglas’ sound work ‘Seasons’ (2013), for which Borregaard and Sørensen commissioned four Nordic composers to each create a contemporary interpretation of one our four seasons; ‘Sprout’ by Rasmus Zwicki (DK), ‘L’estate – summer from hell’ by Fredrik Österling (S), ‘Autumn’ by Sunleif Rasmussen (FO) and ‘Wenn es winter ist’ by Martin Rane Bauck (N).
Rosenström has reworked these four compositions into one multi-channel sound installation for the Yellow Courtyard at Charlottenborg. Hereby, Off Seasons takes threads from Stormglas’ original work and provides a new sensory and spatial experience of the music to the viewer. The installation, a minimal landscape that balances between nurture and neglect, springs from Rosenströms fascination of the cyclical conditions that appear in nature and our cultures constant strive to cultivate and master them.
Commissioned by CHART Art Fair.

Bonniers konsthall, Stockholm
Art of Memory is a series of exhibitions at Bonniers Konsthall and surrounding museums that discusses today’s conceptions of memory and history. Through lectures, performances and a publication the exhibition offers parallel stories about the past – stories that question how memories, individual and collective, real or constructed, build both our past and our future.
At Bonniers Konsthall, three parallel solo exhibitions will be shown within the galleries where each artist is given the opportunity to exhibit a comprehensive series of works within the new context of the surrounding artistries. Outside of the konsthall, a ring of works by participating artists will be presented at the Observatory Museum, Jewish Museum, Strindberg Museum, Music and Theatre Library, Stockholm Public Library, Haunted Palace (Scheffler´s Palace) and Vasaparken in relation to the various museum collections.

The 6th MOMENTUM BIENNIAL
IMAGINE BEING HERE NOW
The 6th Momentum Biennial, held in Moss, Norway, is predicated upon a conviction that the complexities of orientating the world depend on factors of memory and imagination that inevitably transpire within time and space. Indeed, we tend to emphasize the latter when considering human experience, but for each individual time and space expands back and forth, up and down and even sideways (to whatever elements each person takes into consideration at any given moment). The inherent present of each individual not only extends to momentary impressions but to his or her past as well as their expectations of the future, owing to the fact that we have the ability to imagine being somewhere else entirely, in any other place at any other time.

“Second Worlds” – the theme of this year’s steirischer herbst – sets out in search of cultural,
social, political and psychological parallel worlds: as conceptual alternatives, models of thought,
levers for a change of paradigm that suddenly allow us to see things differently. Even with a
minor shift of perspective and parameters, things start to slide: adjust the focus and what is clear becomes blurred, what is blurred becomes clear, and we recognise different structures,
different layers, different realities.
