In "True Finn" Yael Bartana takes up a highly topical issue. She asks: How does national identity operate as a means of inclusion and exclusion? What mechanisms exist for this in Finland? Can an immigrant become a true Finn?
Yael Bartana invited people living in Finland and with different ethnic, religious and political backgrounds to take part in creating a utopian moment in Finland. What happens when they live together seven days and determine themselves through the other? The notion of integration; is it even possible?
