Art for the last day of 2015: Disobedience


One day (2011) by Jani Leinonen (website, Wikipedia in Finnish), the Headmaster of the School of Disobedience in Kiasma, the contemporary art museum of Finland.

I took this picture (a side note: the sentence was originally written by Jean Jacques Rousseau) in October 2015 in Kiasma. The exhibition of Leinonen’s somewhat provocative works ends 31 January 2016.

    This is very good; not only because I’m a fan of Rousseau – that totally misunderstood philosopher, but Leinonen’s clever use of the logos of obscenely wealthy, multinational purveyors of junk food to the unsuspecting poor, as a metaphor for the purveying of the junk philosophy of globalisation that has allowed the transfer of 99.9% of the planet’s wealth to 0.1% of the world’s richest people, is in the fine tradition of Art as social comment. The perfect end to your series. Thanks.
