Museum of Impossible Forms

The Museum of Impossible Forms (m{if}) is a cultural centre located in Kontula, East-Helsinki. The Museum is a space in flux – a contested space representing a contact zone, a space of unlearning, formulating identity constructs, norm-critical consciousness and critical thinking, already containing within it the potential for the para museum, the counter museum, the anti museum. ‘Impossible Forms’ are those that facilitate the process of transgressing the boundaries/borders between art, politics, practice, theory, the artist and the spectator.

The core of the space is a library and an archive  – real, imagined and embodied. Museum of Impossible Forms - M{if} was founded by an independent group of Helsinki artists/ curators/ philosophers/ activists/ pedagogists in spring 2017 as an antiracist and queer-feminist project, a heterogeneous space, and as an experimental and migrant form of expression.
