The Reading Circle? Introduction to what is political,

Jaana Kokko: 2010, 32 min.
It is an experimental fiction about the pleasure of collective rereading. It is inspired by Hannah Arendt's thinking, and of hosting a Hannah Arendt Reading Circle at artist's home in Katajanokka, Helsinki in the autumn 2006. What does âpoliticalâ mean? How to define âwomanly politicalâ? Is it possible to attain a revolutionism that transcends generations and redefine âpoliticalâ?

Sunday April, 27
, 6-8pm
2th. The Feminist Tea Party
Feminist tea party is a get-together-meeting. There will be presented short introductions to artistic practices as a feminist strategy. What does it mean to be a feminist in today's society? What can we learn about feminist strategies and art? Artist talk and invited guests, t.b.a.

Opening hours: Thursday to Saturday, 3-7pm (and by appointment)

Jaana Kokko is an artist living and working in Helsinki, Finland. In her artistic practice she is interested not only in the exploration of the expressive and historical aspects of art, but finds it equally important to understand and be aware of the fact that a finished piece of art and the act of displaying it publicly are political comments. The importance to understand our political history is equally important: What is the political heritage of ours and where do we belong?

At the OKK Jaana Kokko will show work in progress a film called Social Sketches (Haven) 2014 installed in the gallery space. The experimental documentary film studies spaces as embodied politics. It is filmed in Tallinn, Estonia in 2013-2014.

Jaana Kokko has had solo exhibitions for example in Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2012); Pori Art Museum Finland (2013); Optica â Center for Contemporary Art, MontrÃal, Canada (2010); and Anna Ahmatova Art Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia (2007). From 2010 she is a PhD student at Art Department at Aalto University, University of Art, Design and Architecture in Helsinki.
