Queercache 27 June–30 July 2017
Kalle Hamm and Dzamil Kamanger
Community environmental art project, 2017
Queercache Helsinki lends its form and structure from the popular pastime of geocaching, where objects hidden in the environment are sought using GPS. The caches of the project tell of places, experiences and events in the Helsinki region that have been important to transpeople and members of minorities within the queer minority, such as language minorities or persons with disabilities. Six persons took part in the planning of the project and it was realized as part of the Finland 100 – In Rainbow Colors project.
