2000.katastro.fi project took place at the end of year 1999, close
to the dawn of a new millennium. The mainstream media was listing
Most Important Persons of the preceding millennium and creating
different horror scenarios related to the Y2K bug.
Despite of the public fuss, the attention of the 2000.katastro.fi-project
was concentrated to other aspects of life: familiar and common issues
which will remain equally essential in the present millennium. The
project gathered Finnish reflections on such matters as: Age,
Beauty, Breeding, Consumption, Crime,
Death, Power, Work, Faith, Freedom,
Laziness, Love, Nature. The members of the
authors' club Nobelistiklubi wrote short essays on every issue and
each essay was connected to a relevant question. The millennium
changed already a few years ago but the answers that people gave
still remain actual.
