Photographic artist Nanna Hänninen’s (b. 1973) international career began at the Berlin Art Fair in 2000. Now, 20 years later, Hänninen brings to Serlachius Museum Gösta her retrospective exhibition How about the Future? 

In her works, she has focused on depicting the individual’s experience in society. She has also has addressed themes such as insecurity and otherness as well as the need for and the impossibility of control.

In her recent works, Hänninen has focused on the burning issue of the day: climate change and the choices it brings, which we who are living today must consider. The photographs taken against a black background are serious studies of the state of our planet. She has taken them both in the safety of the office and in the Mojave Desert. The exhibition’s curator is Laura Kuurne.
