Partizaning Maunula

Maunulatalo, Maunula, Helsinki

Moscow-based Partizaning Collective is an urban activist movement focusing on art as a tool for social change. Two collective members, Anton Polskiy and Natalia Sinitsina were hosted by m-cult to create “Partizaning Maunula”, an intervention focusing on mechanisms of exclusion in the neighbourhood.

In collaboration with artists from Aalto University’s Visual Culture and Contemporary Art (ViCCA) program, Partizaning created a series of interventions to address the parallel dynamics of gentrification and segregation in the Maunula neighbourhood.
