Finnish animation celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2014. "MUU Video 2014" is a collection of nine animations, both more traditional puppet animation as well as computer-generated animations. The collection's eight artists are the current generation Finnish artists or artists based in Finland. The works are part of the MUU Gallery's program year 2013-2015, and the works are selected by Artist's Association MUU's director Timo Soppela.
