Photographic Memories of Soviet Vyborg from the 1940s, 50s and 60s
A photography exhibition focused on Vyborg from the 1940s to the 1960s. Produced by the Vyborg Castle Museum, the exhibition is made up of photographs that have entered the castle’s collections from private archives. The photographs have been taken by professional photographers, architects, restorers, property developers and journalists. They tell stories of everyday life, the restoration of the city and the construction of new buildings. Following the Second World War, Vyborg became the “northern gate of the Soviet Union”. Though the city was able to preserve much of its former image, that image would come to take
on many Soviet aspects. Access to the city was restricted, due to its location in the border region. Because of this, much information about the city’s history was lost, both in Finland and the Soviet Union. In the exhibition, we see Vyborg through the eyes of the people who settled there in the aftermath of the war.

The Museum of Prehistoric Attitudes
Throughout history, people have been treated differently on the basis of their gender. This has forced their stories towards predetermined directions. These prehistoric attitudes have now been put on display, and there are several directions that the stories can take. The exhibition, organised in collaboration with Plan International Finland, uses stories to highlight outdated gender norms, which still seem to have a strong presence both in Finland and across the world.
