TURKU. In Finland’s medieval city Turku, this year’s European Capital of Culture, four pieces of Andy Warhol’s “Electric Chair” series (1971) have been hang up in an surprising location — the city’s Lutheran cathedral. The works, depicting the execution device from Sing Sing maximum security prison in upstate New York, are hanging in one of the church’s chapels. The display is part of a performance and art exhibition entitled “The Last Supper”, which runs until the end of July.

Helsinki For Urban Travelers: 293rd issue: A new chapel

Helsinki For Urban Travelers: 293rd issue: A new chapel | Finland | Scoop.it
I saw how this new chapel is going to look like and I loved it! For me, personally, this whole chapel thing is not important, because I don't even pay "church tax" (=in Finland if you "belong to church" you pay tax for this as well), but it represents Finnish design with a very nice way.

The main material is going to be something very typical - wood. For it's shape this new chapel reminds slighly Kirnu, which was Finlands pavilion in Shanghai World Expo and was designed by JKMM Architects. This chapel is designed by K2S architects.

Exodus from Finnish churches - BBC News (Video)

Exodus from Finnish churches - BBC News (Video) | Finland | Scoop.it
The Lutheran Church in Finland is losing around a thousand members a week, as people opt out of a church tax.

But it seems the exodus is not just about saving money. Finnish society is rapidly becoming more secular and questioning the moral teachings of the Church, especially about homosexuality.
