An adventure in a passing life and lost gardens

In the diminished circle of life of the present, one can recall moments and sensory experiences, light, smell, and fleeting things. They can become a new inspiration. A great way to turn your gaze away from the burning headlines for a moment is history.

The National Museum of Finland

The good side of history in adventure is that it strangely injects into the proportions of the present. This week, Weekly’s radio program travels far into history with the National Museum’s Jouni Kuurne. Päivi Häikiö and Anni Korkman also discuss imaginary gardens and paintings by Pierre Bonnard with artist Maiju Salmenkivi.
