The activation is part of the ‘Experience Six Museums’ event, which will take place in the museums of Helsinki city center on 23 November from 17:00 to 22:00. The performances combine multiple art forms to create surprising encounters and interpretations in the middle of the exhibitions – there will be circus, poetry, live music and more.
