Maybe I lay on your belly forever
work by Diana Thielen and Kaisa Kukkonen performed at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma Performing Love festival, April 2019, Helsinki, Finland
How can art create a culture of love? How to understand and celebrate love as a communal force? Love is more than just sex and romance; it is a powerful common resource, the potential of which we as human society have not yet properly realized. Together with Kiasma, Love Foundation Helsinki organises a two-day charity art festival Performing Love. Through the mediums of contemporary art, discussions, workshops, performance, and music, our aim is to facilitate positive human interaction and to build a more beautiful urban culture. Performing Love consists of diverse art-related encounters, which let the audience delve both rationally and emotionally into the themes of love and caring for others.
