DISK COVERS is an exhibition that started 12.10.2018 in The Finnis Museum of Games in Tampere. It’s presenting the subculture of disk cover art that started during mid 80s. Basicly this scene was part of Commodore 64 demoscene with artists drawing their own floppy covers for demos, magazines, people and so on. Ari ‘Duce’ Seppä and I curated the show (as we’ve been part of this since late 80s) and it presents over 300 works from all around the world.

This must be the very first time covers are presented in this scale so if you’re around go on and see it – it’s for sure all works you’ve never seen. Also its an exhibition of works mostly by selftaught artists and what’s most significant showing a culture where mostly teenage BOYS express themselves by drawing. The show is on until early 2019.
