Miracles and wonders

IHME, the Finnish word for “miracle” or “wonder”, describes something strange or weird, something that wakens curiosity. The annual IHME Contemporary Art Festival (2009–2018), produced by Pro Arte Foundation Finland, aims to enhance the status, visibility and accessibility of visual art and to promote art as a resource for democratic society, an important part of human life and everyday existence. Now in its tenth year, the festival consists of commissioned work of art in a public space, as well as lectures, discussions, films, and workshops. This publication documents the ten annual commissions, and features conversations with the artists.

Artists featured:
Mirosław Bałka, Yael Bartana, Christian Boltanski, Jeremy Deller, Antony Gormley, Henrik Håkansson, Susan Philipsz, Kateřina Šedá, Superflex, Theaster Gates & The Black Monks of Mississippi.
