Tuesday 6th November, at 18:00 - 19:00
Helsinki art museum (Eteläinen Rautatiekatu 8), Corner Gallery

The exhibition Visible Invisibility invites visitors to dive into vivid and hidden forms of urban youth subcultures in Saint Petersburg and in Helsinki. The exhibition foregrounds the creative struggles for the right to belong to urban space and asks who has the right to the space. The exhibition asks the question: on which terms is it possible for art and research to depict subcultural meanings? You will be able to enjoy a post-conference drink and discuss about the exhibition together with the research team.

CINEMA EVENT: TÄÄLTÄ TULLAAN ELÄMÄ! ("Right on man!" with English subtitles)

Wednesday 7th November, at 17:00
The National Audiovisual Institute’s Archive Cinema Orion (Eerikinkatu 15)  

The movie is a part of a series of youth themed movies, screened as a homage to the 30th anniversary of the Finnish Youth Research Society. Right on man! (1980) is a depiction of a special education class and it was a breakthrough in portraying  young people’s everyday life and youth cultures in Helsinki. The movie tells about young people  in the 1970’s and 1980’s in a realistic, rough around the edges, way. Even though the ending is not all sunshine and smiles, young people’s hunger for life , gives the movie a glimpse of hope.

After the screening Mikko Salasuo (Leading Senior Researcher, Finnish Youth Research Network) and Sirpa Tani (Professor, University of Helsinki) will discuss some of the key themes of the film.
