AIM Helsinki 2013

Business Meeting Park Kamppi, Helsinki

Friday, 27 September, 2013–Monday, 30 September, 2013

AIM Helsinki 2013 was held at the Business Meeting Park Kamppi, with eleven participants from seven partner organisations. Included were visits and meetings with representatives from Huuto Gallery, Gallery Forum Box and MUU Gallery, where the particular support systems for artists exhibiting in Finland led to a discussion about cultural support and ways of operating for the arts in different countries. The network decided to develop a pilot version of the database/CSM – and different solutions to the previously identified problems were discussed in detail.

At the Cable Factory there were meetings with representatives of HIAP, Frame Visual Art Finland, and Checkpoint Helsinki. A group exhibition with Philip Tonda Heide, Kim Dotty Hachmann, Anni Laakso, Pontus Raud, Andreas Ribbung, Matthias Roth, Meggi Sandell, Bertram Schilling, Signe Vad, and Marcos Vidal was held at Cable Gallery during Art Fair Suomi, an annual membership exhibition organised by two artists' associations representing new media in contemporary art: Artists’ Association MUU and the Photographic Artists’ Association.
