Youth in the Media City arrives in Finland

The Digital Youth in the Media City research project has published a new digital book: Youth in the Media City – Belonging and Control on the Move. The resource gives a street level view into urban youth subcultures in Helsinki and Saint Petersburg.


The book is a collection of the project's researchers' essays on their research: fieldwork in the metro, encounters in an urban circus, active player communities of Pokémon Go, the redefinition of the city by sticker artists and debating gender in graffiti subculture.

The publication brings research topics to a broader audience in an experimental way -through popular writing and art. The multi-sensory experience lets you explore the phenomena through the sound art of Taina Riikonen and Patrik Rastenberger's photos.
