The fifth Uniarts Research Pavilion involves a residency programme for artists and artist-researchers during the spring 2023 and culminates in a series of public events. The tagline for the Research Pavilion #5 is “Puzzled Together”, framed by the current global challenges: the ecological sustainability crisis, post-pandemic reconstruction and geopolitical tensions. Founded in 2015, Uniarts Helsinki Research Pavilion is an international and cross-institutional platform for processes, discussions, and collaborations in the field of artistic research.
