Drawing: Sonja Jokiniemi


PA A is a book based on conversations, encounters, notations and practices from 2014-2015, when Sonja Jokiniemi worked with autistic people and people with special needs. She wanted to create a platform to talks that didn't find a theatre stage and create textual form for languages not heard. Jokiniemi wanted to make a book based on languages that escape collective meaning, yet embody an immense subjective poetry, cognition and universe.
