Taidekirppis is an artist-run space, an archive, a contact zone and a temporary collection. It’s a platform for re-thinking exhibition experiences and creating an archive of past exhibitions. Through compiling a digital archive of exhibitions and a temporary physical collection of works by emerging artists based in Finland, Taidekirppis aims to construct an alternative historical record that can serve as a tool for critical thinking and reflecting on the working conditions that shape our practices. Most of all, Taidekirppis is a home for artworks which have passed through the life cycle of being created and exhibited and now are without a place.
Taidekirppis has a continuous open call throughout the year for people to submit works that need a place.
*We are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive space free from any form of discrimination where people from different backgrounds and identities feel welcome.
