KUNST.EE SPRING ISSUE STILL ON SALE: "The fact that the artist is a beggar who essentially pays the state for art – for the opportunity to make art – was articulated very clearly in Estonia in the noughties by female artists in particular." – Eha Komissarov: "The noughties are a very difficult theme to brand.(KUNST.EE 2/2021)

 

EDITORIAL

(1/2020)

What would the canon of art history look like if men and women were represented in it equally? Would it be broadly the same as it is now or quite different from the museum exhibitions we are accustomed to? Can we get back at history and who will be the last one to laugh? Can photography provide a non-political perspective on history? How on earth do you talk about serious, philosophical topics without becoming ridiculous? For example, what is a game and what is "real life" or what is theatre and what is art? What is being in the world and how should you move through space? And what will come of the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM) in the
longer term?

They say art is larger than life, but that is just one reason to get yourself this issue of KUNST.EE, the art quarterly devoted to various aspects of contemporary art and visual culture in Estonia. All 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 Sanna Lipponen, Johannes Saar, Neeme Lopp, Ott Karulin, Erkki Luuk, Hirohisa Koike, Heili Sepp and Andreas Trossek. Questions, questions, questions…

Stay tuned!
