Timo Miettinen, chairman of EM Group Oy in Finland, has had a close connection with art ever since he was fifteen years old. Together with his mother, he collected Finnish landscape paintings of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Since 2004, he expands the collection with contemporary art. Through his work, Timo Miettinen got to know Germany and has remained closely connected to the country ever since. »In intellectual terms, Germany was always my second spiritual home. Dealing with art means I can build a bridge between Berlin and Helsinki, as I also aim to show Finnish artists not yet well known here.«
The collection comprises artworks by contemporary artists of various generations and nationalities, mainly paintings, drawings and sculptures, among them a series of marble sculptures from the Roman Times.
A selection of artists from the collection features a.o. Georg Baselitz, Amoako Boafo, Peppi Bottrop, Louise Bourgeois, Monica Bonvicini, André Butzer, William Copley, Matthias Dornfeld, Rainer Fetting, Bernard Frize, Günther Förg, Adrian Gheni, Luis Gordillo, Stefanie Gutheil, Peter Halley, Secundino Hernández, Leiko Ikemura, Kaarina Kaikkonen, Karin Kneffel, Matti Kujasalo, Heikki Marila, Kirsi Mikkola, Antti Laitinen, Jussi Niva, Albert Oehlen, A.R.
