Kalle Hamm is a Helsinki-based artist, whose work examines cultural encounters and their impacts both in historical and contemporary context. Hamm graduated with a BA degree from Lahti Institute of Fine Arts in 1994 and with MA from the University of Art and Design Helsinki 2002. Since 2000 he has collaborated with the artist Dzamil Kamanger from Iranian Kurdistan. Dealing with the position of marginality in mainstream culture and the encounters of cultures in global networks, their works occupy an intermediate zone between art, design and handicraft, and are often sparked off everyday things.
