The Home – A Space and State of Mind is a multifaceted exhibition and the high point of Design Museum autumn season during World Design Capital Helsinki 2012. It addresses the relationship of modern-day people with the home from different perspectives, both conceptually and with concrete examples, and the various manifestations and meanings that this familiar environment can have. The exhibition also considers the evolution of the home in retrospect, from the present day back to the 19th century. Produced by Design Museum, the exhibition is curated by the museum’s Chief Curator Suvi Saloniemi and the exhibition architecture is by Harri Kivilinna. The visual design is by graphic designer Laura Väinölä.

The Home – A Place and a State of Mind features objects, works and projects by, among others, Alex Delany, from Habbo Hotel. Pekka Harni, Kaarle Hurtig, Kaksi Två, Jeremy Leslie, Elodie Pong, Panu Puolakka, Bita Razavi, Sanna Saastamoinen-Barrois, Nene Tsuboi & Tuomas Toivonen, Emilia Ukkonen, Juha van Ingen and Timo Wright.
