Pekko Koskinen (FI) / REALITY RESEARCH CENTER
Reality Research Center is a performing arts collective based in Helsinki, Finland, founded in 2001. Their works stem from critical perspectives that observe, question and renew the surrounding reality through performative means. For RRC, performances are both a tool for and a result of artistic research. The collective produces and publishes a quarterly performance journal along with books, articles and reviews. http://www.todellisuus.fi
Pekko Koskinen designs realities from the perspective of a game, playing around with combinations of art and everyday life. His works have included fictional religions, social forms, conceptual tools and self-designs. Many of these interact with life at large. In the field of sanctified arts, his work has ended up in several institutions such as Athens and Mercosul Biennials, Volksbühne, New York offering him modest artistic credit. He’s currently one of the artistic directors of RRC and a core member of YKON, an advocacy group for utopian thought.
