Living in Kouvola from the 1960's to the 1980's
Mar 2016 • Solo
This new City Museum of Kouvola (Kouvolan kaupunginmuseo) was opened in November 2015. It is situated in the same building with Poikilo Art Museum, next to the Museum Quarter with old wooden houses.

When you go to the staircase, you see an interesting computer generated video projection by Charles Sandison, an English born Scottish visual artist who lives and works in Tampere, Finland. It consists of local historical documents, words and photos.

The museum has temporary exhibitions. The current exhibition tells about living in Kouvola and elsewhere in Finland from the 1960's to the 1980's. This exhibition is open until October 9th, 2016. The exhibition is very interesting but quite small. But I loved it.
