For those in London: Pilvi Takala discusses her work The Stroker together with Curator Teresa Calonje tonight at 7–9 pm in Liberia Bookshop in London. For the artwork Takala worked at Second Home under the pseudonym of Nina Nieminen with a fictional business called Personnel Touch, that offered touching at the office. During her time there she gathered people's reactions to the touching and her work. The material is now used to create a performance together with dancer Emma Waltraud Howes, that will be showed at Second Home before the discussion.

The first cover in WSOY's 12 classics series is published. It's made by Rauha Mäkilä for Tove Jansson's Kesäkirja (The Summer Book). “Tove Jansson has always been an important writer to me. I read her books with pleasure anew. Her narrative is beautiful, tolerant and multi-layered. I glanced through The Summer Book before I started to paint, and ended up reading it once again” says Mäkilä. 12 Finnish literary classics will get new covers by contemporary Finnish artists during Finland's centenary year. All the originals for the covers will be displayed in an exhibition in Helsinki Contemporary in December.
