1.HAM – Helsinki Art Museum
This is my favourite art museum in Helsinki because I enjoy its wide variety of modern and contemporary exhibitions. When I first moved to Helsinki I discovered many contemporary Finnish artists via visits to HAM.

2. MCA – Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney
If anyone is in or near Sydney, definitely check out the MCA! It is quite possibly my favourite art museum in the world.

3. Instagram account @textsfromyourexistentialist
This account pairs renowned works of art/film stills with existentialist quotes. If Wednesday Addams and Nietzsche co-owned an Instagram or Tumblr account, this would be it.

4. Creative Nonfiction magazine
Unfortunately this magazine is available via subscription only, but there are some essays and articles available on the website. Each issue explores a specific topic e.g the weather or siblings etc. and I especially enjoy the experimental pieces.
