Contemporary Finnish comics have blossomed unprecedentedly in the last five years. Many Finnish comic artists have in fact made a breakthrough in France, but not yet in their homeland. Finland is known as a country of art comics, but only abroad.

Comic artists are influenced by a broad range of visual culture: by underground culture, popular culture imagery and other comics, on the one hand, and by contemporary art, illustrations and even folk art, on the other. Many of the artists tell stories that bear a resemblance to their own lives, creating a kind of autobiographical fiction.

The artists in the exhibition are Mari Ahokoivu, Terhi Ekebom, Matti Hagelberg, Jyrki Heikkinen, Kati Kovacs, Hanneriina Moisseinen, Tommi Musturi, Ville Ranta, Aapo Rapi, Anna Sailamaa, Ville Tietäväinen, Katja Tukiainen, Marko Turunen and Amanda Vähämäki.
