The cooperation between Finland, Norway and Sweden in Venice was initiated in 1962 after the completion of the Nordic Pavilion, designed by the Norwegian architect Sverre Fehn. The Pavilion was intended to provide a platform for the dialog of various artistic positions between the three countries. The responsibility for representation in each Biennale alternates between the collaborating countries. Marketta Seppala, Director of FRAME Finnish Fund for Art Exchange, is the commissioner for the 2007 edition.
