One Million Finnish Passports, 1995

One million replicated Finnish passports, glass, 800 x 800 x 80 cm.

Finland has a historically stringent immigration policy, staunch nationalists they accept only a tiny fraction of the citizenship applications they receive, far less than any of their neighboring countries. Observing this, Jaar somehow managed to get 1 million Finnish passports printed up to represent the number of people who should have been nationalized as Finnish citizens but weren’t.  Now obviously this poses somewhat of a security risk, so the passports were housed behind a fortress of bullet-proof glass and the passports would be burned after the exhibit ended.

“I could say that everything I know about art, I learned as an architect. As an architect, I give myself a program, taking into account a specific space. Space is not just physical. It’s also social, cultural, political. Studying the space, I try to reach what we call the essence of the space. Then I combine that with the essence of what I am trying to say. All these elements are incorporated in the program, in which I have an objective.”

Now, I know what you’re thinking. This is a god damned boring gif of a raccoon. Well, I guess it is, except I made the recording this very morning. The Raccoon was just hanging out on the fence, trying to play it cool, but I know he was up to no good. We had a moment
