EDITORIAL

(1/2024)


Spring 2024


Typically, art captures the attention of those who are otherwise indifferent or lukewarm towards it only when it becomes intertwined with money or politics. In other words, power. This pattern becomes most apparent in society whenever another price record is shattered in the art market or when a juicy art scandal simmers in the (social) media cauldron. Suddenly, overnight, everyone becomes an "art expert", and another festival of opinions can commence.

In this issue, more specific questions about these and other topics in art are raised by Heie Marie Treier, Kädi Talvoja, Andreas Trossek, Taavi Eelmaa, Konstantin Kuningas, Leslie Moody Castro, Kaire Nurk, Mari-Liis Krautmann, Anita Kodanik, Krista Kodres and Johannes Saar.

The issue ends – or starts, if you choose to flip through it in reverse – with two thematic supplements. In the first, Kadi-Ell Tähiste, the head of The Association of Estonian Art Institutions, provides an overview of the organisation of financial support for private art managers in Estonia. In the second supplement, Nils Ohlsen, director of the Lillehammer Art Museum, draws parallels between Konrad Mägi's Baltic Sea paintings and the German artist group Die Brücke.

And by the way, the quarterly magazine Kunst.ee is now also available in electronic format. Subscribers to the print edition can enjoy complimentary access to the e-version through the culture portal kultuurileht.ee.
