Talks

Peter Vesterbacka

Helsinki, Finnland

Artek ist einer der innovativsten Wegbereiter für modernes Design an der Schnittstelle von Design, Architektur und Kunst bekannt. Anlässlich des 80. Geburtstags, veranstaltete Artek ein Gesprächsreihe in Helsinkis Finlandia Halle.

When the architect and designer couple Alvar and Aino Aalto, the arts patron Maire Gullichsen and the art historian and critic Nils-Gustav Hahl founded Artek on 15 October 1935 in Helsinki, one of the most unusual and ambitious projects in the history of furniture was launched. The founders conceived Artek as a platform for modern art, industry, interior design and propaganda. From the very beginning, they saw Artek as a vehicle for entering into a multi-layered dialogue with the international avant-garde and intensifying cultural exchange with the world. Eighty years later, Artek Talks intends to shed light on various disciplines that shape the cultural landscape of today. Moderated by Helsinki-based architect and educator Tuomas Toivonen, individual lectures will be given by the following speakers: 

Irma Boom, Graphic designer, Netherlands 
Amie Siegel, Artist, US 
Jean-Philippe Vassal, Architect, France 
Peter Vesterbacka, Mighty Eagle, Finland
