ESTONIAN ART’S 2016 MAGAZINE, WEBSITE and LAUNCH PARTY

The 2016 Issue of Estonian Art Magazine Focuses on Art Publishing in Estonia

 Estonian Art is an English language art magazine published by the Estonian Institute, since 1997. This issue of Estonian Art focuses on the phenomena of art publishing in Estonia.

The rise of independent book publishers run by and for the artistic community, have become a notable trend in how contemporary Estonian art and design is conceptualized and distributed both locally and internationally. From the Lugemik Bookshop in the yard of the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia in Tallinn to ;paranoia publishing group ltd’s bookshop in Tartu Art Museum – art publishers in Estonia have reconfigured the current cultural climate. Estonian Art magazine traces the lifeline of the art publication from concept and design to the publishing house floor. The story of art publishing in Estonia is told by eight authors.

Marika Agu talks to Kiwa about ;paranoia publishing and considers the effects of ;paranoia publishing group ltd. Ott Kagovere writes about Lugemik and graphic design in Estonia. Martin Rünk talks to the editors of the multi-media publication project New Material and New Number. Andreas Trossek, editor of Estonia’s oldest art magazine talks about KUNST.EE and the digital Turn. Laura Kuusk and Pascale Riou speak about the “Side Effects” book and projects, and there is a photo essay by Liina Siib on Tallinn Book Printers.

The issue also contains articles about Estonian architecture, design and art history.

Estonian Art magazine is internationally distributed to arts institutions in over twenty countries as well as locally to all major arts institutions in Estonia. Estonian Art is also now online, with its own website and social media presence at www.estonianart.ee

Estonian Art magazine will celebrate the new issue with a launch party open to the public on Friday, October 28th at EKKM Kohvik (Põhja pst 35) at 18:00.

The Hypnotist Collector: An Estonian/Spanish Art Exchange

logo_THC_puhas

“Estonia and Spain are separated by thousands of kilometers. As geographically opposite poles of heterogeneous Europe – North and South – they possess very different historical, cultural and artistic trajectories. Until a little less than two decades ago, they belonged to different worlds with the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic hidden behind the Iron Curtain in the Eastern Bloc, and Spain aligned with the seemingly capitalist and democratic ideals of the Western Bloc of Europe. On an artistic level, a superficial glance at this world of the early 1980s, divided into blocs, would set Estonia in the framework of official socialist state commissioned art linked to the occupying Soviet regime, and Spain into a production framework linked to the logics of postmodernism as a dominant cultural paradigm. While there is some truth in this simplistic vision, it requires certain historical nuances with artistic freedom as the litmus test that reveals the everyday reality of different social conditions.”
