Five Salmon and Two Fish (viisi lohta ja kaksi kalaa)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter explores the role of photo and video documentation in an ‘artivist’ (Penley & Ross, 1991) project. Ephemeral textile art and activist performance art were used to remonstrate against the legal sanctioning of a Finnish environmental graffiti artist who propagates environmental action against the disappearance of salmon from the Kemi river in Finnish Lapland.
