Kim De Ruysscher developes work of Social Engagement in extreme circumstances, an example being the creation of a work of art for the Sámi people in Finland. The Sámi people had been oppressed for years and each lived much separated from each other, with each group isolated in their own world. His work, titled ‘Warmth’ (2003), aimed to help local people to get to know each other by working together and by meetings at the opening of the artwork. Later on Kim De Ruysscher recreated the same work in ‘Cooperation’ with young people and volunteers.
