► “Come with an open mind. And crying is allowed!” This is how art collector Seppo Fränti introduces his life’s work: a colourful art collection, in which abstract minimalism goes hand in hand with powerful expressionism. This book tells Fränti’s life story through the art that he has amassed: how he became a collector and how art has affected his life.

The collection says much about Fränti’s close friendships with the artists, whom he cannot separate from their artworks. “This is where we have eaten and drunk together, and that is the rug on which many have slept,” Fränti reveals.

Now treasures from Fränti’s sprawling private collection have been donated to the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Mad Love presents the Seppo Fränti Collection to the public.
