What travelers say:

At the Helsinki Museum of Contemporary Art (Kiasma), enjoy the fine multimedia art and installations. Videos depict the life of the disliked gay who lived in Soviet Estonia under the codename Chairman. Not only did he lose his job and his friends, he was sentenced to prison and killed at home in 1991 due to his LGBT identity. The artist recreated the chairman with videos based on historical documents.
