Human life and human experiences contain a large spectrum of emotional nuances. Emotions transmit various meanings. Without emotions, the human social world would be empty and meaningless. The understanding of human emotions requires a holistic analytical view, which takes into account man’s consciousness, embodiment and situationally. Emotions are a significant part of the human world of experiences.

Emotions can be discernible or undetectable, powerful or weak, rich in nuances or solid. Emotions make life meaningful. Things experienced through emotions have a meaning in the human sense. In emotions live our past experiences, our personality, intentions, knowledge, values, and world view.

All artists are members of Galerie TOOLBOX , which is a cooperative gallery of seven Finnish artists in the center of Berlin, in Mitte. The gallery represents Finnish and international art from the perspective of social questions.

The exhibition is an exchange exhibition with Studio 44 (visiting the gallery TOOLBOX  Berlin in July 2014).
