READ MORE ABOUT ARTISTS AND WORKS

The videos comprising Performance Voyage 7 were selected by a jury consisting of artist Heidi Kilpeläinen, Head of Arts & Culture, Finnish Institute in London Jaakko Nousiainen, and director of MUU Timo Soppela.
The production of Performance Voyage 7 has been generously supported by the City of Helsinki Cultural Office.

Artists’ Association MUU has been organising Performance Voyage tours since 2011, when the first Performance Voyage event was staged as part of the Amorph! Festival produced by MUU. One of the key aims of the Performance Voyage series is to record and document ephemeral performances and thereby extend their lifespan.
