For Creativity to Grow Over Time

Eksperimenta! hotel partner Estoria is telling stories of Estonia. There are more connections between Eksperimenta! and Estoria than the initial “E”. Annely Köster asked Estoria communication manager Peep Ehasalu to talk closer what, why and how.

At the beginning of the year, you invited people to tell stories about their field of specialty and about Estonia. And not just any stories but those that are exciting enough for people to want to retell them. The stories were collected into a big “book” in the form of Hotel ESTORIA, whose every room is like a colourful page of Estonia. Now please tell us the story of ESTORIA – one that our readers would want to spread like rumour. Read more

Autumn in Tallinn

The dark days of autumn mean that most activities in Tallinn move to indoor venues. Nevertheless, there is still a lot going on, even aside from Eksperimenta!

As an idea for an inspiring afternoon we could recommend a stroll to Tallinn’s hipster neighbourhood Kalamaja. Start off with a visit to the Energy Discovery Centre – an exciting interactive display of all sorts of scientific inventions with many hands-on activities within the former power plant. This way you could add some hard science to your Eksperimenta! experience. Read more

The Estonian Exposition is Taking Shape

The selection of participants in the Estonian expo is not based on any specific schools; everybody had the chance to take part in the public competition. However, experience has shown that there are some schools with a greater output of young artists, and this is no doubt thanks to their art teachers, who have, first of all, already explained to their students the essence of contemporary art and are also actively encouraging them to take part in the process of Eksperimenta!.

Arda Koray. Our Real Identity. 2011

Science and art are two fields that are interconnected with each other and our lives. In 2012, when the new triennial’s topic was announced, we were ending our national Eksperimenta! triennial exhibition at the Modern Art Centre of Ankara. All the participants came together in front of Arda Koray’s work, which used physics and mathematics and questioned the “real identity” through art. This work became our starting point for the 2nd Eksperimenta!. Arda continued working on the same subject. One of his works is also included in the exhibition. This way, we have a chance to build a link between the 1st and 2nd triennial.

Miniature Installatsion in Urban Space

Eva Mari Mahhov, Maiju Kettunen, Marja Palmujoki
