EKA MA students’ project workshop “Looking for a Common Space”

On Friday, 4th of September at 4 pm, the workshop “Looking for a Common Space” will open.
Estonian Academy of Arts students are collectively in a search for a communal space where they can socialize, relax and get inspired. Various workshops will take place throughout a two week period and are open to all EKA students. The workshop poses the question, now that we all share a building again, where has the inspiring atmosphere, collective and feeling of belonging gone that was so characteristic to EKA before? Contemporary art students look at these concerns and transform a classroom into a comfortable space meant for students. The workshop explores academic boundaries. Because the university building is struggling with a lack of space, the only possibility of having a student area is to approach the need through academic matter, applying for
a room under the guise of holding a workshop. To make the workshop appear genuine, an ironic program has been put together that encompasses workshop tasks such as 5 minutes of staring at the ceiling or 1 hour of just being. The project raises the question, what measures need to be taken in order to get a space for students where we can relax, meet new people, share experiences and let loose of the academic atmosphere?
The aim of this project is to get the attention of the university board members. To raise their awareness once more that a space for students is needed in order to fulfill the purpose of this shared building and to rebuild the sense of community.
Participating artists: Sindey Lepp, Johannes Luik, Nusrat Jahan, Ott Lemsaar, Tõnis Laurson , Grete Remmel.

WDBE 2020 lead-in seminar ‘Integrated Design’

An online seminar entitled ‘Integrated Design’ is being held from 13:00-15:30 on 16 June as part of WDBE 2020.

The World Summit on the Digital Built Environment or WDBE 2020, which is the third in the series, is being hosted this autumn in Tallinn and Helsinki. The topics to be covered at the summit will put participants on paths to the future and give them the chance to think big and dream up the world in which we will be living in 10-30 years’ time. A number of events will be taking place ahead of the summit, including the seminar being held on 16 June.

The online event, which will be taking place at the Estonian Academy of Arts (EAA), will showcase a variety of interdisciplinary practices as well as examples of cooperation between architects and engineers and of the relationships between design and the construction industry.

Andres Ojari, the dean of the Faculty of Architecture at the EAA, says that the ongoing health crisis has completely changed people’s working habits and the way they work with other people. “Remote work has become the new normal, with technology allowing us to exchange knowledge, experience, expert assessments and analyses in real time,” he said. “Instead of the linear, stage-by-stage way we’ve been organising our work to date, we’re working together on processes that are taking place in parallel. So you might find an engineer working out a construction solution before the plans for the building in question have been finalised, with the framework provided by the manufacturer being the starting point for spatial ideas. A well-planned and well-integrated design model allows you to see straight away the consequences of every line you draw on the construction, on its manufacturing, on energy efficiency and on everything else you can determine through calculations.”

Taking to the virtual stage at the seminar will be respected speakers from the fields of architecture, engineering and urban planning from both Estonia and abroad.

Programme

13:00 Introduction | Moderated by Jaan Saar (Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications)
13:05 ‘The 7th Transformation. A new mandate for cities, a new model for developers’ | Damiano Cerrone (DEMOS Helsinki)
13:30 ‘New production lines for architecture: An integrated model for architecture and engineering in practice and academy’| Adam Orlinski (Bollinger und Grohmann Engineering), Sille Pihlak & Siim Tuksam  (EAA & PART)
14:15 ‘Digital tools and platform technologies for industrialised construction’ | Phil Langely (Bryden Wood) & Renee Puusepp  (Creatomus Solutions &  EAA)
15:00 ‘City and Data’ | Professor Thomas Auer  (TRANSSOLAR Energietechnik)
15:15-15:30 Questions & closing discussion involving all participants

The Tallinn programme of WDBE 2020 is being curated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications and the Estonian Digital Construction Cluster, of which the EAA is a member. The programme is being supported by Enterprise Estonia with financing from the European Regional Development Fund. The main organiser of WDBE 2020 is KiraHUB in Finland.

PhD Vitamin – Lectures and consultatsions for potential PhD candidates

PhD Vitamin is a first-time event at the Estonian Academy of Arts that consists of public lectures and individual consultations. Our goal is to bring together experts in artistic research with prospective PhD students with the intent of introducing the latter to the field of artistic research and to advise them in developing their own PhD research proposals.

1. Join the lectures: (please register beforehand)

Monday, 04.05. 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Liina Siib works mainly in photography, video and installation. The most prominent and recurring themes in Siib’s work include social spaces, marginalised groups and overlooked experiences. In her work Siib looks into how history gets written and the role of memory in shaping various groups in society, often using interviews, observation or archival materials as her method of working. (CCA)

Monday, 04.05. 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Dr. Varvara Guljajeva is an artist and researcher. Varvara holds a PhD from Estonian Academy of Arts, and M.Sc in digital media from University of Luebeck, and a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from IT Collage (Tallinn University of Technology). Her practice-based doctoral thesis “From interaction to postparticipation: the disappearing role of the active participant” analyses and contextualises passive audience interaction through the lens of post-participation.

Tuesday, 05.05. 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Dr. Michael Schwab is a London-based artist and artistic researcher who investigates postconceptual uses of technology in a variety of media including photography, drawing, printmaking, and installation art. He holds a M.A. in philosophy (Hamburg University) and a PhD in photography (Royal College of Art, London) that focuses on post-conceptual post-photography and artistic research methodology. He is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal for Artistic Research (JAR).

Wednesday, 06.05. 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Dr. Chris Hales has exhibited a variety of interactive film installations dating back to ARTEC’95 in Japan via Future Cinema at ZKM in 2003 to the Glucksman Gallery in Cork in 2019. Part of his enquiry is the use of novel or unusual interface technology including facial emotion recognition and brain-computer interfaces.

2. Join the consultations: (please also register beforehand)

In addition to the lectures, individual consultations take place within the framework of the PhD Vitamin from 6th to 8th of May. They offer the opportunity to talk about your artistic work and ideas for a doctoral thesis with an expert of your choice.

In addition to the experts who will give lectures in the first half of the event, it is possible to register for a consultation with artist Kristina Norman.

Kristina Norman is a freelance artist whose interdisciplinary work is characterized by an interest in the relationship between identity, memory and public space. One of her most internationally known works is the intervention in public space at the 10th Manifesta Biennale in St. Petersburg, when she installed a 14-meter iron Christmas tree frame – which has become a symbol of Euromaidan – in front of the Winter Palace. The action linked the tragic events in Kiev to the repressed memory of demonstrations at the Palace Square at various times. Norman’s newer research-based creation experiments with performative expressions.

To participate in the consultations, register HERE.

We encourage artists, alumni and graduates of the Estonian Academy of Arts and other universities working with creative research methods to register. Registration is open until 03.05.2020. The exact consultation times will be sent directly to the provided e-mail addresses. Be quick – the number of free spots for the consultations is limited!

The lectures and consultations will take place in digital environments. The event is funded by the European Regional Development Fund

Opening reception for exhibition “This is not a labyrinth”

You are invited to the opening of the exhibition “This is not a labyrinth” on 11 March at 5 PM at the EKA Billboard Gallery. The gallery is located outside on the EKA building on Kotzebue street. The exhibition will remain open until 8 April.

Walking through the cities, they change into something else: it’s impossible to walk along the same street twice, the shadows and light are growing and shrinking on their own. We are lost since morning. Don’t let go. Don’t get lost. This is not anymore the place you came to.
Like in “Invisible Cities” by Italo Calvino, we show one city we visited together, but more so one city, we visited in our imaginations. “This is not a labyrinth” is a photo album about on day in a foggy dreamy place.

Graphic Art 3rd year students: Mark Hiir, Hanneleele Kaldmaa, Brit Kikas, Maria Izabella Lehtsaar, Riin Maide, Liis-Marleen Verilaskja
