“Not much has changed in Helsinki’s culture scene over the first decades of our new millennium,” a foreign newspaper concluded in their overview of Europe’s art and culture field in January 2020. But perhaps they were not looking closely enough…

No Past Today is a brand new magazine in English and Finnish tackling the questions and issues that workers in the art and culture field are confronted with in their local and translocal environments. The magazine offers insider and outsider views on current dynamics that affect the culture system as a whole, and daily life in its details. It provides solutions to tricky questions about work life and raises others about seeming solutions offered to those engaged in the culture sector.

No Past Today is a true science fiction.

windferreira studied Fine Art & Sculpture in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, and Dramaturgy & European Literature in Munich, Germany. During the last years, windferreira developed works for various programmes and institutions, such as Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt, VanAbbeMuseum Eindhoven, Festival Cale Fundão, and AnAcademy Amsterdam.

Each work starts from a specific location and context, on the basis of which different media and narratives are then explored. In 2006, windferreira founded the State of Translocality, a series of installations and interventions reflecting on the subjective experiences of “translocal” workers, and on the ways in which transnational work structures impact urban space. More recent installation and video works revolve around the topic of archive and documentation, following different ways in which memory is being constructed.

windferreira is Bettina Wind and Alexandra Ferreira (Berlin).
