In August 2019, the Läskimooses comics magazine will take up residence in MUU Cable at the Cable Factory for the period of one month. Starting on 7 August, Dr. Matti Hagelberg will work in the gallery five days a week. Visitors have a chance to observe as Dr. Hagelberg finishes issue #48 of his 1500-page comic book he began in 2012.

Opening of the exhibition on Friday 2 August 2019, from 5pm–7pm. Welcome!

The walls of the gallery will be decorated with originals in elegant oak frames, providing visitors with a cross-section of the seven-year journey of Läskimooses. Alongside the originals, the exhibition will also include a selection of the most charming examples of the book’s versatile cover art. The broader themes of Läskimooses are explored in two series consisting of several pages in which chaos meets order and primitive forces meet technology.

The exhibition also features the release of the following items, among others:

Issue #22 of Doctor Hagelberg’s B.E.M. series, Ex-mark 00 – Used-up Textmark pens, by-products of the making of Läskimooses, presented in a sophisticated cardboard box in true Läskimooses style. Available for purchase at the gallery. Each box in the edition of 200 comes with a certificate of authenticity.

A map of Mars, drawn after the very latest measurements – The map is printed in 3-colour offset. Each map is signed and numbered. Edition of 200.

Läskimooses issue #47 – Released in the gallery on the Night of the Arts, 15 August 2019. The magazine’s chief editor Hans Nissen will attend the event to entertain the audience and present Dr. Matti Hagelberg’s other work.

“Expansive and expandable, Läskimooses is part retro-neurotic science fiction, part Outsider creation myth, part Finnish national origin, part oddball Gospel, part long-lost cosmogony, part alien encyclopaedia, part never-ending pulpy saga, part man-versus-ape pithecophobia, part cultish evolutionary theory. And ultimately, like none of them at all. And like nothing else yet seen in the medium.”
Paul Gravett, Artreview

“Twin Peaks is nothing compared to Läskimooses. Läskimooses is a veritable test laboratory of contemporary comics.”
Olli Kangassalo, Kulttuuricocktail
