NADA Talk: Albert Franch Sunyer and Peeter Pihel

February 17 at 12:00

After leaving his biology studies, Albert Franch Sunyer learned the kitchen ropes in the Michelin-starred restaurant Angle and Abac in Barcelona. Albert found his specialty in pastries, and his whisk is never too far out of reach. His experience ranges from the acclaimed hotels as well as Helsinki restaurants Chez Dominique, Olo and Grön. From 2017 he is one of the co-founders of Nolla which was one of the first zero-waste rastaurants in the Scandinavian district.

During this NADA Talk, Peeter will discuss the topic of sustainability with Albert and what restaurant Nolla counts as its biggest hardships and accomplishments on this journey.

The event is FREE and has limited seating.
Please register beforehand.

Photo Tours with Curators: Berndt Arell and Renee Mussai

February 21 at 18:00

Üks õhtu, kaks fototuuri.
One night, two photo tours.

Berndt Arell, the curator of Tom of Finland's "The Darkroom" exhibition and Lina Iris Viktor "Dark Testament" exhibition curator Renee Mussai will conduct photo tours and give an intro for our newest exhibitions.

This year marks 100 years since Tom of Finland was born in Finland and Fotografiska Tallinn will premier its newest photo exhibition
“The Darkroom”. Our exhibition halls will be the first to bring audiences Tom of Finland’s photography which is produced by Fotografiska in collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation.

The handwriting and style of Lina Iris binds together mythical symbolism and complex patters, creating a language on its own, mirroring humanities need for sacred experiences.

Tom of Finland "The Darkroom" Opening Party

February 22 from 23:00 - Sunrise

It's officially time to celebrate the global premier of Tom of Finland’s photo exhibition “The Darkroom”!

We are more than high to bring together the electrifying rhythmic powerhouses of Horse Meat Disco and Mutant Disco - Tallinn.

Coming from London, Horse Meat Disco is the most adored, wet and famous gay-disco extravaganza in the whole wide world, made for connoisseurs of the nastiest disco and house music.

Mutant Disco is the legendary club-night from Tallinn. They ended their monthly nights, which lasted 20 years, a few winters back. However they wake up every now & then especially when there's an opportunity to co-operate in such a sexy event! Could be because they're still a bit horny after all these years (even).

The party will take flight at 23:00 and you have the unheard opportunity of visiting the exhibition until the very early morning hours.

Tom of Finland is regarded as a role model in the fight for a more equal and fair world. He contributed to the sense of pride that became a major force in the early gay movement.

Tom's men are proud, happy, and confident.

Ticket: 15 € (includes free entrance to Tom of Finland’s exhibition)
