"The stars of Helsinki museums are coming to you, unleashed in your neighborhood. Get ready for the greatest show and tell on Earth."

The British artist Jeremy Deller (b. 1966) is to design the IHME Project 2015 entitled Do touch. In this new work the public on their everyday rounds will momentarily be faced with their shared past, when museum objects leave their glass cases and make their way into the hands of city residents in public spaces in Helsinki metropolitan area. People will have a chance to inspect selected objects from the collections of Helsinki´s historical museums for a week or more in March 2015. The stories people tell and the experiences they share have an important part in Deller´s art work.
