JÖNSSI! – Exhibition of Jouko Lehtola

BUD’s Small Show series continues with JÖNSSI! – an exhibition of the legendary and much-loved documentary and rock photographer Jouko “Jönssi” Lehtola.

We’re truly honored to showcase a mix of pieces from Jouko’s renowned and celebrated Urban Youth and Young Heroes series. Jouko had a rare talent to capture Finnish youngsters and subcultures in an honest, accepting and un-embellished way. He called his pictures his children: “They will live after I’m gone. In their own silent way, they will tell what was relevant to me. How I saw and how I felt.”

Come and enjoy the brilliant work of Jönssi to the exhibition opening event at BUD Fri 4.9. from 17:00, with a glass of bubbly or red wine, music and friends. Warmly welcome!

BUD DOC & WINE: The New Dictators – Archaeology of Helsinki graffiti

A true doc gem for all the lovers of Finnish street art and graffiti. Get in, grab a glass of wine and enjoy this beautifully real in-depth documentary by Aleksi Pohjavirta. The New Dictators – Archaeology of Helsinki graffiti shows the innocent mid-eighties beginnings of Helsinki’s graffiti scene, and takes the viewer through the 90’s vandal times to the zero-tolerance politics of 2000’s. Catch a rare insider’s look to underground culture that’s often mystified and even criminalized in media, with a lot of rare archival material and interviews from pioneers such as Diamonds Crew, Trama and more.

Director Aleksi Pohjavirta talks about making of the film 18.15. Showtime 18.30.

WORKSHOP: Dried flower arrangement

Anything nicer than a combo of flowery gorgeousness & a little bubbly fun? We’re ending the summer times by hosting a workshop, where you’ll create a stunning centerpiece of dried flowers.

The workshop starts with an introduction to working with dried flowers, followed by a technique-how-to. Then, DIY-time: Choose your favs from a wide selection of dried flowers – everything from crazy colourful to natural hues, we’ve got you covered – and make your own. Lastly, we’ll take a pic of your arrangement & you’ll be wrapping it up beautifully, with the guidance of our florist.
