Research group

By using science and art the project studies lamenting tradition and it's role in the modern Finnish society. In the project we are looking to answer the question of what needs are met with the lamenting in the context of contemporary society. In the project there are three artist-researcher pairs, who are approaching the lamenting from the perspective of experience, religion, community and emotion. The project combines folklore studies, ethnomusicology and culture research into artistic works that approaches and adapts lamenting tradition.

The project is funded by Kone Foundation.
