Art Walk. The Future is in One Hour: Estonian Art in the 1990s
Drop-in guided tour in English
The Kumu Art Museum offers you a great opportunity to spend your leisure time in a vibrant artistic space. On the last Sunday of every month, we offer a special drop-in guided tour that will introduce one of our exhibitions. Through our museum mediators, you can gain deeper insight into art and history.
The permanent exhibition “The Future is in One Hour: Estonian Art in the 1990s” departs from the rupture caused in the Estonian society by the end of the Cold War and the regaining of independence. In the art field, the 1990s were a revolutionary era, characterised by discontinuation, the opposition between generations, new media and novel art policy. Estonians started to regularly organise international art events – festivals and biennials – and Estonian artists travelled abroad more and more to take part in significant art gatherings all over the world. Expanding horizons had a considerable impact on local artists. At the same time, the transition society was at a loss as to how to link the social revolution with artistic expression. Such uncertainty is evident in the fact that quite a few artistic phenomena back then were difficult to categorise or to even call trends or movements.
Art Walk at Kumu takes place on the last Sunday of every month (from September till May) at 3 pm. NB! Check the exact schedule, because national holidays might effect this!
The meeting point is at the museum ticket office.
