Cultural Interpreters

Kiasma’s cultural interpreters, also known as Kultus, are a group of young people that started operating in 2008. The aim is to bring contemporary art closer to those who it does not ordinarily reach, particularly young people and cultural minorities.

The Kultus seek to lower the threshold of entering the museum and to make contemporary art a natural part of a young person’s life. They interpret the operations of Kiasma for them, showing that art can be discussed and enjoyed without excessive need for information or a highbrow attitude.

The Kultus organise events, projects and exhibitions at Kiasma. By making contemporary art accessible to others, they also learn about art themselves, about art institutions and the operations of Kiasma.
