CV

finnfemfel, born in 1998, is a German-Finnish artist group consisting of Albert Braun, Marcus Lerviks and Oskar Lindström. Ideas are developed, organized and finally realized together, often with invited guests. Everyday life is the starting point and source of all activities. The tension of the artistic work moves between reality, fiction, simulation and the narrative. Humor and the grotesque are essential components. Despite different individual approaches and places of residence, the end result is always a collective, 3 people – 1 work!

Current and former members Albert Braun, Marcus Lerviks and Oskar LindströmSimo Brotherus left the group in 2002.
