Together with active audience work and the programming of the Kiasma Theatre, they constitute a living whole. Augmenting the collection is a major aspect of the operations of Kiasma. The primary focus in the museum collection is on Finnish contemporary art. The collection is also supplemented by commissioning new work. The collection is presented to the public in annually changing thematic exhibitions.
