MCD for Miesten Viikko # 10

‘Surviving is not a crime’ by Kukka Ranta & Laura Lehtinen

“After Romania and Bulgaria joined to the European Union in 2007 many Roma started to use their right for the free movement and residence in other EU Member States in search of better conditions of life. Even though they haven’t been able to leave the discrimination behind. It seems to follow them where ever they go.

Because of the lack of job opportunities many Roma have been contending for the most precarious works with immigrants without papers and are mostly earning their living by begging money, selling flowers or collecting bottles on the streets of European cities, as well as in Helsinki.

”I dream of one day being able to settle down somewhere with my family. Rent a flat, find a job and put my children to school. To live and be treated like a normal person,” said a Roma man living in a caravan in Helsinki.”


MCD for Miesten Viikko # 8

‘The world our fathers wished for us 2’ by Pilvenpiirtäjät (Heidi Hänninen and Grigorij Pisarenko)

We give our children a certain kind of model how they should live, what they should do, what kind of plans they should make and have for the future and what does it mean to be a boy or a girl…

We divide our one world into two different parts: 1. nature and 2. spaces that human being has built for himself. Being divided and pressured, is it really the only way to live and understand this life?

‘Flexible man – Joustava mies’ by Aino Lemetyinen, assisted by Gerard Cabarrocas Cerra

Since I havent found one, I decided to paint my “dream man”. He is tall and fine, and flexible. Flexible is also a word which describes him and his attitude in life. He lives a colourfull life and what he knows for sure is to RELAX! More relaxed paintings coming soon in Chile.
