Thank you for the 2019 ANTI Festival

Media release 4.10.2019

The 18th edition of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival was organised in Kuopio, Finland between 10th and 15th September 2019. The festival brought together artists and audiences from across Finland and around the world. The programme traced various iterations of death in an attempt to open-up thinking around our relationship to it and to the many sets of phenomena that surround it.

Over 10 000 participants attended festival events in Kuopio and over 80 000 people followed ANTI’s posting, images and videos on social media.

A warm thank you to the festival artists, audiences, staff members, volunteers and partners!
