The event will be opened by the director of the Ateneum Art Museum, Susanna Pettersson. The exhibition will be presented by the chief curator Sointu Fritze and the artist Adel Abidin. The event will be in Finnish and English. Complimentary coffee.  

To book your place at the event, register by Friday 9 March at: pressconference@ateneum.fi.

History Wipes will present video installations and sculptures by the contemporary artist Adel Abidin (born 1973, Baghdad, Iraq), many of which will be completed especially for the exhibition. The works by the internationally recognised artist deal with the painful aspects of our history and human existence in an increasingly unstable world.

History Wipes challenges us to look at what is happening around us right now – and what has happened over the previous decades and centuries. The exhibition deals with uncomfortable issues that we prefer to shut out from our minds. The subjects include ethnic cleansing, war, refugees, and manipulation exercised by the machinery of power. The artist is interested in what is being wiped from sight: what we seek to blot out and what we keep quiet about.
