The Mustarinda Association is a group of artists and researchers in Finland, whose goal is to promote the ecological rebuilding of society, the diversity of culture and nature, and the connection between art and science.
At the centre of our activity lie contemporary art, boundary-crossing research, practical experimentation, communication, education and events. The Mustarinda Association reaches towards a post-fossil culture by combining scientific knowledge and experiential artistic activity.
The Mustarinda Association is active both internationally and locally. Our activities are rooted at the Mustarinda house at the edge of the Paljakka nature reserve in Kainuu; the house has versatile spaces for artist and researcher residencies, and is also the location for exhibitions and various events. Some of our activity also takes place in Helsinki.
