Vano Allsalu: "The EAA has three main functions: these are an association representing its members, contributing to cultural policy and the art scene, and property manager."

Vano Allsalu has been the new president of the Estonian Artists Association (EAA) since 1 August 2013, having taken over from Jaan Elken, who was president from 1999–2013. KUNST.EE asks Allsalu the same 12 questions that he has asked many well-known Estonian artists over the last ten years on the art portal at www.kunstikeskus.ee. This portal containing E-learning materials, virtual exhibitions and art news is associated with Sally Studio Art School, which has been operating since 1991, and of which Allsalu is one of the founding members and instigators.

Elin Kard: "If artists have no galleries where they can start out, the other institutions will have no one's work to sell, mediate, reward or represent later on."

Andreas Trossek interviews Elin Kard, vice president of the Estonian Artists' Association (EAA).

Karin Hallas-Murula: "The increase in the number of exhibition and museum visitors seems to be a general trend."

Andreas Trossek's interview with the director of Tallinn Art Hall Karin Hallas-Murula who, on becoming the director in 2011, promised to increase the number of visitors, and succeeded.

Maria Arusoo: "The main emphasis of our work is developing dialogue or articulated discussion."

Aliina Astrova's interview with Maria Arusoo, Director of the Center for Contemporary Arts, Estonia (CCAE). On 1 April 2013, Johannes Saar stepped down as director after having held the position since 2005, and the CCAE Board appointed Arusoo, who has been working as project manager and curator at CCAE since 2012, as acting director. After applications were publicly invited for the post, the CCAE Council subsequently appointed Arusoo as the new director on 22 September 2013.

Rael Artel: "Exhibitions in museums could very well be something we have not imagined yet."

Maarin Mürk interviews Rael Artel, the director of the Tartu Art Museum (TAM) on 27 January 2014. As the contract of the previous director Reet Mark ended, the vacancy was publicly announced and in November 2012 Artel was the successful candidate. She started working at TAM on 1 April 2013. In January 2014, a kind of "war of petitions" erupted: at first, nearly 20 people signed an open letter that objected to Artel's actions as the director of the museum; following that, nearly 40 people signed a "counter-letter" that voiced support for Artel.

Kai Lobjakas: “An awful lot depends on funding.”

Tanel Veenre interviews Kai Lobjakas, the new director of the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design (ETDM).
