Finnish Landscape is a reader resulting from an exhibition curated by Joanna Warsza at the ethnographic museum on the island of Seurasaari. The exhibition Finnish Landscape was a response to the past, present and future of the museum featuring the contemporary artists Ahmed Al-Nawas and Minna Henriksson, Kader Attia, Annika Eriksson, Natascha Sadr Haghighian with Haig Aivazian and Jumana Manna, Ilya Orlov and Liisa Roberts. Their works dealt with conservation and destruction, nature and culture, ethnography and post-ethnography, historical use and misuse, identity-building and branding of current cultural and political landscapes in Finland. The book includes a series of interviews by Hanna Ohtonen with the artists about their interventions as well as with the curator Clémentine Deliss, who speaks about the need to remediate ethnographic museums.
