The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being

The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being


Exhibition: 27 June – 5 September 2020 
Venue: Lindenstraße 34 – 35, 10969 Berlin 

Persons Projects | Helsinki School is proud to present our group exhibition The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being. This show will take place in both of our spaces Lindenstr. 34 and 35, and will be accompanied with our latest publication from the Helsinki School series volume 6 by Hatje Cantz.
This exhibition focuses on how these selected artists from the Helsinki School use their internal compass to intrinsically measure and guide their perspective in interpreting the landscape they live in. Historically, Nordic culture abides by the power generated by the changing of the four seasons. Each of these natural time periods either by its wrath or grace, notches its mark upon its passing, leaving a reminder in its wake of how fragile our human presence is within it.

Joakim Eskildsen – American Realities / Home Works

Exhibition: April 26–June 1, 2013
Address: Lindenstrasse 34, 2nd floor, 10969 Berlin


Gallery TAIK is thrilled to present a first insight to Joakim Eskildsen's most recent series American Realities (2011) and Home Works (in progress since 2005) in Berlin.
These series represent two different approaches in Eskildsen's work. While American Realities was initiated through a project with TIME Magazine and took less than a year to complete, Home Works is again one of the artist's long-term projects, like his well-known body of work The Roma Journeys.
