Artists’ Association MUU was established in 1987. Its membership has doubled during this millennium and was 640 in 2019. The growth of the association is a reflection of current trends in the field of contemporary art in Finland. MUU has an active collaboration network with both Finnish and international art and cultural organisations.
International exchange exhibitions and projects are a significant part of the association’s work. Throughout its existence, MUU has served as an key mediator of contacts between curators and artists.
International curators with an interest in alternative and media art make Finnish art known abroad, and the association’s international artist members and guests bring international influences to the Finnish art world. MUU is currently the second largest of the five member organisations of the Artists’ Association of Finland, and the largest member organisation in the Finnish Media Art Network.
