Hello Homo! @ Delight and Prejudice 11 June – 18 August 2013

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Laura_Vera_Sara_by_Jaakko_Pesonen_270612The internationally toured and praise reviewed Crucible Studio production “Hello Homo!” by the visiting artist Jaakko Pesonen will next show in the Werstas’ ‘Delight and Prejudice’ exhibition, http://www.werstas.fi/, Tampere, Finland, 11 June – 18 August 2013. Within the interactive installation for public spaces, three characters present online comments on homosexuality as tragicomic everyday beliefs and offer you a personal encounter with prejudice.

“Everyday stories go through the history of LGBTIQ people during the last 40 years in this exhibition… The exhibition sheds light not only on the experiences of the minority people, being exposed to prejudices, but also on important turning points and love, of course. The exhibition combines cultural history and art into an exciting, bewildering and gay mixture.”
