Based in a former shopping centre, the show’s title,  ” Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo: Moderation, Cooperation, Equality” is a rethinking of the Enlightenment motto “Freedom, Brotherhood, Equality”. Co-curators Maija Helasvuo and Marja Bonada say the thinking is that the individualistic ideas of the Enlightenment have brought us to capitalism, and eventually to climate change and the collapse of capitalism. The task now is to ask what we got wrong, and how we might need to rethink those ideas.
