The second planet solitude exhibition, this time with eight artists, including three Finnish guest artists, took place in 2017 in the cultural centre Pasinger Fabrik in Munich. The show included photography, painting, sculpture, printmaking and video.
In order to honour the guest artists and to grant the public an insight into the natural and cultural landscape of Finland, a country celebrating its 100th anniversary since independence in 2017, the artists organized a series of events during the exhibition with a special focus on Finland. There was a concert and a video performance by Marko Lampisuo and the Finnish flautist and poet Johanna Kärkkäinen, two evenings with artist-led tours through the exhibition, two documentary films from and about Finland (Mittsommernachtstango and Garden Lovers), and last but not least, a lively reading event in German in collaboration with the university of Munich and a group of students showcasing Finnish literature on the subject of nature.
