Doris van Drathen, an independent art historian and critic, will be giving a lecture about the human measure in contemporary art. If a series of contemporary artists choose the human measure, or better their own physical measure, as a base for their work, could it be a starting point for a larger reflection on a human position?
The Foundation for the Finnish Museum of Photography was set up by Finland`s main photographic organizations on 6.5.1969. The Museum’s first exhibition and storage spaces were at Korkeavuorenkatu Street 2 in Ullanlinna, Helsinki.
