Tom of Finland Experience
Tom of Finland Experience gets you to the streets of Helsinki once walked by Touko Laaksonen, man behind this now world famous artist name. The homoerotic art of Tom of Finland has became a symbol for freedom and acceptance for generations since 1950s and year 2017 brought also a movie about his life to theaters.
Touko lived majority of his life in Helsinki and now there is unique opportunity to follow his steps through the years and also understand how Finland has changed to be one of the most liberal countries of the world when we now 2017 celebrate of 100 years of independence.
Not only an illustrator Touko was also known as talented pianists and he studies at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. We like to bring his talent alive and start the tour with an audiovisual experience combining his art, interviews and favorite music. This takes place at Klaus K hotel that once was where Sibelius Academy was located.
