CHAOS is a photo exhibition for vocational education students in the Nordic countries. The NU exhibitions have been held yearly since 2017 by Yrkesinstitutet Prakticum in Helsinki.

The aim of the project is to network and develop media & art education in the Nordic countries and give students and schools a platform to meet and get visibility and to promote themselves. Since the year 2016 we have had the pleasure to collaborate with over hundred students from Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Finland.

Each year we thrive to find new methods to collaborate and share educational experiences between the schools among the teachers that are involved with the project. This year’s theme is CHAOS.

The project is open to new partner schools from the Nordic countries also in the future. NU24 CHAOS is a collaboration between Yrkesinstitutet Prakticum (FIN), LBS Kreativa Gymnasiet, Schillerska gymnasiet (SE), Tækniskólinn (IS) and Horten VGS (NO).

Nearing the Abyss
by A. D. Coleman

“The English language borrows the word chaos from the Greek word that means “abyss.” And, as philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche proposed, “[I]f you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”

“Chaos” serves as the chosen theme for this 2024 edition of an established, annual, collaborative exhibition of work by a cross-section of young Nordic photography students.”
