Nynnyt is a curatorial duo of Hanna Ohtonen and Selina Väliheikki, whose work is centered around the thematics of feminism, friendship and friendliness. In their shared practice they focus, along with art, on the encounters between the makers and publics of art as well as on reciprocal learning. Nynnyt are interested in the richness of small actions, in emphatic collides and in moving together against the fur. Together they have done field trips, given talks, organised workshops and events.
What can feminism do? is an ongoing series of investigations around contemporary feminism and art: a possibility to think these things together with hope, chance/change and activism. The first part took place in November 2015 as a research chamber and micro library set up in Third Space, Helsinki.
