Ääreen – Documentary in Animation brings animations on all screens in Central Library Oodi. All through October, screens in the Oodi lobby will be transformed into an animation exhibition featuring works by the Finnish Animation Guild and by animation students of Aalto University.

Curated by the Finnish Animation Guild, the show spotlights the wide range and expressive power of animation. The short, silent animations cover a wide range of topics, from everyday events to pressing social issues. The artists come from different corners of the art world, which is reflected in their approach and the techniques they use..
