NINA LASSILA - CRITICAL REVIEW OF ICELANDIC POWER STRUCTURES in collaboration with AV-Arkki 07.09.2012 - 23.09.2012 in the MediaBox at Forum Box gallery Ruoholahdenranta 3a 00180 Helsinki http://www.forumbox.fi/fi/calendar/581/601-nina-lassila---critical-review-of-icelandic-power-structures-%282010%29/ The work is based on articles about the "new" icelandic finance scene, that claim i.e that the youngsters of Iceland these days wish to become businessmen rather than rockstars. Wearing a funny masque I set out to talk about serious things with the Reykjavik crowd. I asked people to show me on a Reykjavik map where I could find power. Banks and parliaments were the most common things mentioned. When asking about the future of Iceland most people said it was bright. After the collapse of the Icelandic economy (October 2008) this work changed dramatically - for a while I did not know what to do with it. The work consists of documentary material (video, photographs, maps), posters and research material. The documentation of this project has been edited into a film of 15min. The film had it's premiere in the film programme of the second Survival Kit festival in Riga Latvia in September 2010.
