The Auditive Photo Exhibition explores the Finnish Civil War through pictures, texts and sounds. In January 1918 civil war broke out in Finland as a consequence of WW1.

Finland had just gained independence of Russia in 1917. The Reds, i.e. the labouring class, were supported by Russian revolutionaries while the Whites, the land owners and bourgeois class, received support from Germans. The war ended on May 16, 1918 in a victory of the Whites.

The exhibition may contain material that may disturb the audience.
