"I have used the comparison of [---] perforated skin, which does not cover, hide or adorn but rather hints at the internal." – Reet Varblane answers Hedi Rosma's questions about Anu Põder, whose works have been included in "The Milk of Dreams", the main exhibition of the ongoing 59th International Venice Art Biennale. "Untold backstories: Anu Põder (1947–2013) and her posthumous rise to international fame" (KUNST.EE 3/2022)


Saving Wiiralt for art history

Heie Treier (3-4/2010)

Heie Treier interviews Finnish composer and art collector Juhani Komulainen
Juhani Komulainen, the owner of a valuable Estonian art collection in which Eduard Wiiralt plays a very special role, lives in Paris and Helsinki. Wiiralt’s own private collection of his works (linked to Nelly Stulz) was sold in Paris at the beginning of 21st century and is now carefully maintained in Strasbourg. Mai Levin is the best Estonian expert in the field, and she wrote of this unique art collection in KUNST.EE (2003, no 1, pages 90-92) right after the collection surfaced. Later she also published a catalogue based on an exhibition that took place at the Adamson-Eric museum. However, this interview offers the owner of the collection, the modest Juhani Komulainen himself, a chance to share the incredible story of how Wiiralt's works were saved for posterity.
