Worlds in Metamorphosis

Our world is impacted by sudden global shifts and a growing social uncertainty. Information, and the lack of it, are to be found more than ever before; at the same time, a busy and consumption-based lifestyle does not encourage pausing to be still, even when it would be necessary. Experiencing art is surrendering to a moment which feels timeless; it is lasting imagination otherwise. With the help of art, one can experience change more deeply and escape for a moment into alternate worlds.

Read the foreword by Minna Leinonen, Artistic Director of the Tampere Biennale 2024:

Minna Leinonen kyykyssä tunnelissa punainen mekko päällään.

About

Tampere Biennale introduces the most important phenomena in Finnish contemporary music: today’s leading composers and the latest compositions. Organised biennially since 1986, the festival was born out of the need to showcase music from living Finnish composers and encourage the audience to get acquainted with new music. Over the years, Tampere Biennale has developed into one of the most prestigious contemporary music events in Finland.
