What kind of events are taking place today, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow? Here are some suggestions!
Kanuti Guild Hall
2–4 Apr
Learning is something that already begins from an embryo and continues for decades until the human molecules dissolve into non-existence. We are not born human; we learn to become so. We learn how to turn our obscure biological body of cells into a human being. Pouring the foundation. Cleaning the bathroom so there aren’t any unsightly stains. Brushing teeth at the right angle. Expressing love. Having the right breathing while giving birth and maintaining our dignity on our deathbed. Come. We know.
Kaisa Maasik’s personal exhibition “Your Love Hurts”
Tartu Art House
2–8 Apr
“Your Love Hurts” uses stories from Estonian people to talk about domestic and intimate partner violence. The gallery will become a shared installation space where the audience can reflect upon their own experiences.
International contemporary art exhibition “The State Is Not a Work of Art”
Tallinn Art Hall
16 Feb – 29 Apr
An exhibition “The State Is Not a Work of Art”, initiated by Tallinn Art Hall and curated by the international contemporary art curator Katerina Gregos, examines what today’s countries are built on. People have tried to congregate into groups based on similar characteristics throughout history, defining themselves based on geography and searching for some kind of kinship. Thus, we can view the creation of nation-states as the next evolutionary phase: the forming of larger groups out of smaller ones.
Exhibition “What do you see? What would you like to see?”
Valga Museum
3 Apr – 3 May
The exhibition “What do you see? What would you like to see?” is part of the collective artistic research “100 poplars” that is based on exhibitions, events and artist residencies in Valga. The exhibition is focused on identity creation and brings together perspectives and viewpoints of locals and outsiders.
Ballet “Don Juan”
Theatre Vanemuine (6 Apr)
Estonian National Opera (10 Apr)
Don Juan is one of the most dazzling figures of European cultural history. His origin is uncertain, but since early baroque times, the legend about his art of seduction and its inevitable punishment are at the centre of countless operas, dramas or comedies, offering his frivolous episodes also to the improvising folk and puppet theatre. Sometimes the tragedy is emphasized in the comical, sometimes his boundless desire is read as an ingenious and brilliant intellectualism.
