MARJO LEVLIN: DIVIDUAL INDIVIDUAL
17 Nov 2017 – 7 Jan 2018

Dividual Individual (2017) talks about racial biology and investigates the scientific studies and propaganda work that the Florin Commission (today Föreningen Folkhälsan) carried out in Swedish-speaking areas in Finland between 1913 and 1916. Alongside archival material, the work also includes butterflies as a reference to Finland’s first professor of genetics, Harry Federley, a world-renowned zoologist and lepidopterist who was also a eugenicist and secretary of the Florin Commission.
