No Escape (1989) by Louise Bourgeois is a seasoned traveller. Having left Kiasma in early 2015, it has already been on show in three other countries already. Its route with the Structures of Existence: The Cells touring exhibition has taken it to Haus der Kunst in Munich, to Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, and to Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. From Spain, the piece will continue to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.
The number one topic of discussion of the summer and autumn of 2015 has certainly been the refugee crisis, which has extended in a completely new way all the way up North to Finland as well. Both the media and coffee-table discussions have been taken over by the news of the influx of refugees and of the border fences that the European countries have started to erect in order to direct the masses of refugees on new routes.
