Kutikuti 10 years!

Time seems to have gone quite fast as Kutikuti’s 10th anniversary exhibition TEMPORA MUTANTUR is having its premier next week. Welcome to the opening on 19th of August 18–20 in Huuto Gallery (Uudenmaankatu, Helsinki). I must say I’m pretty proud of this show that presents all new work from 40 Finnish contemporary comic artists. All comics, all big size, all colourful silkscreen prints. The exhibition is part of The 30th Helsinki Comics Festival and will of course be open during the actual festival as well. Together with the exhibition we’re also launching a big sized anthology with the same name as the exhibition – limited edition of 500 pcs.  You may find some previews of the works from the event page in Facebook. PS. Those of you who won’t make it to Helsinki please note that we’ll most likely have a small tour around the world with the exhibition later next year…

Finally got hold of a copy of the Finnish edition of The Book of Hope. No major bugs in this or at least they’re mostly visible just to me. Anyway, it looks like a book. Sorry for the crappy video – kind of hard to browse while having  cam in your mouth.

Anyway, this Friday I’ll travel to Leipzig in Germany to visit Millionaires Club -comic festival & The Leipzig Book Fair where the German edition will officially be released. There’ll be a talk at Millionaires Club on Saturday (14–) and on Sunday at the book fair (Hall 5, D200) with my good old Finnish colleague Petteri Tikkanen (11.30–12). After that Petteri & I will speak more in Berlin on Tuesday at the Finnland-Institut (19-). Along this I’ll be signing books on Saturday (15–16) and Sunday (12–13) at Avant-Verlag’s booth. If you’re around, pop by to say hi!

Meanwhile the ‘Blossoming’ exhibition continue’s its tour and can be now seen at Kino Siska in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Stuff happening!
