This is the first time in its 10 year history that the Museum of Contemporary Art is featuring an exhibition dedicated exclusively to comics. The goal here is to highlight recent work from the 1990s, introducing a selection of new, upcoming artists. Contemporary Finnish comic strips portray small-scale scenes from everyday life, often reflecting on themes related to the human condition in the modern world. Today’s comics can be conceived as having a therapeutic role when we open our newspapers in the morning. This, precisely is what makes comics an artform that is accessible to everyone!
