Here we publish art works that Feminist Culture House has commissioned, with information about the artist and the purpose of the commission.

Edith Hammar, poster for demonstration, 2020
Edith Hammar made this poster for the demonstration for trans rights (mentioned above). This was not a commission by Feminist Culture House, but one part of the collective effort by the demonstration organisers. The poster was sold to gather funds for the costs of the demonstration and for a future fund that will be opened in Helsinki, to cover accessibility costs of anti-racist & feminist demonstrations. We will publish more info about this when it’s available.
Pii Anttonen, comic strip, 2020
Pii was commissioned to make a comic strip as an illustration for an article Feminist Culture House was invited to write for a publication on collaboration by Third Space collective. More info about the publication will be available on our site in autumn 2020.
