YKON
is a Helsinki-based non profit art organization, the roots of which go back to 2003, when a number of the current YKON members were the leading organizers of the the 'First Summit of Micronations' in Helsinki.

The organisation was founded as an artistic initiative and platform for exploring utopian fantasies and the political imaginary in relation to concrete sociopolitical structures and concerns. Emerging from and working in the field of contemporary art, YKON merges the language and approaches of a number of disciplines, such as game design, scenario development, experimental education, dynamic facilitation, social architecture, alternative economies. Apart from participating in exhibitions in biennials and exhibition spaces internationally, YKON regularly give lectures and talks on the topics of 'micronations' and utopian communities.
