FLASHBACK: "Pets are sometimes cherished more than close friends or family; they often replace a child. They are depicted a lot, all too often commercially." – Mai Levin "Cats and dogs in Estonian art" (KUNST.EE 1/2021)

(3/2018)

Autumn 2018

Why talk about the financial value of art and the effect of commissioning on the creation of art? How do you initiate a modern European art establishment where everyone is happy? Does the Estonian proverb, which says that before you go to Paris you need to go to Nuustaku, still stand, or how can you explain, for example, landscape views of Otepää painted a hundred years ago to the average Parisian? And now, a hundred years after gaining independence, are Riga, Vilnius and Berlin, for instance, equidistant on an Estonian's psycho-geographical world map or is Neeruti village, for example, paradoxically even "further" away?

They say art is larger than life, but that is just one reason to get yourself KUNST.EE, the art quarterly, which is devoted to various aspects of contemporary art and visual culture in Estonia. All the other reasons are already rather more specific, inviting the reader to delve into an artwork, follow the artist and to critically consider the results.

In this issue, questions in the field of art are posed by Krista Kodres, Stacey Koosel, Taaniel Raudsepp, Jaak Kangilaski, Juha-Heikki Tihinen, Indrek Grigor, Orit Gat, Kärt Kelder, Marika Agu, Francisco Martínez, Triin Tulgiste, Deimantas Narkevičius, Elnara Taidre, Margus Tamm and Hanno Soans. Questions, questions, questions…

Stay tuned!
