Open Lecture by designer Sara Kaaman

Sara Kaaman OPEN LECTURE bodies, rooms, movements, fictions

Wednesday, 30 March
17:30h
Room A-501

The talk is held in English

Playing with temporality, history and storytelling, this performative lecture is a dramatised odyssey through, and deconstruction of, the professional identity we know as the “graphic designer”. Historical and speculative facts and fictions blend into infotainment, with Britney Spears in a supporting role.

Sara Kaaman is a graphic designer based in Stockholm, who is also teaching, writing, moving, and currently studying an MA in New Performative Practices. She is interested in the intersections of publishing technologies, bodies, politics, performance and poetry. Since 2012 she is the graphic designer and co-editor of Girls Like Us magazine. With Maryam Fanni and Matilda Flodmark she forms the research collective MMS, investigating labour histories of graphic design via feminist theory and practice. Their book Natural Enemies of Books – A Messy History of Women in Printing and Typography was published in 2020. With dancer and choreographer Klara Utke Acs, she works on performative investigations on the metaphors of digital and analogue publishing formats, most recently presented as ”The Book – An Interfacial Sitcom”.

Open Artist Talk: Sophie Thun and Karel Koplimets

Artists Sophie Thun and Karel Koplimets will hold an open artist talk at 17:00 on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 in Estonian Academy of Arts, room A-501. Karel Koplimets introduces his artistic practice; Sophie Thun will have a conversation with Marge Monko, professor of the department of photography in EKA.

On the same week, Sophie Thun and Karel Koplimets lead masterclasses in the department of photography.

Talk will be held in English.

Sophie Thun (b. 1985) works primarily with techniques of analogue photography, its spaces, processes as well as conditions of production and exhibition.

In her artistic practice, Thun is primarily concerned with the spaces and physicality of photography, more precisely with me as the technician and operator of the apparatus. The places and the process itself are made visible in the work, the work and exhibition space become part of each other. In her artistic work, Sophie pursues the question of how work can be created for a specific spatial situation, which decisions (can/must) be made regarding the location, format, process, and production.

https://www.sophietappeiner.com/artist/sophie-thun/

Raised in Warsaw, Sophie Thun lives and works in Vienna. She completed her master’s degrees at the Academies of Fine Art in Vienna (2017, Martin Guttmann and Daniel Richter) and Cracow (2010). Solo and duo exhibitions include: I Don’t Remember a Thing: Entering the Elusive Archive of Zenta Dzividzinska, Kim? Contemporary Art Center, Riga; Merge Layers at Galerie Sophie Tappeiner, Vienna (both 2021); Stolberggasse, Secession Vienna (2020). Group exhibitions include: FRIEDL KUBELKA VOM GRÖLLER Songs of Experience, Museo MACRO, Rome; Smart to the Core: Medium / Image, SMART Museum, Chicago; Homesick, Shivers Only, Paris (all 2021); Elisabeth Wild, curated by Adam Szymczyk, Karma International, Zurich; Borderlinking, High Art, Paris (both 2020).

Her work is part of the permanent collections of the Verbund Collection Vienna, the SMART Museum Chicago, Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz, and the OÖ Landesmuseum Linz.

Karel Koplimets (b. 1986) is a photo, video and installation artist based in Tallinn, Estonia. The main keywords in his artistic practice are urban space, fear, paranoia, prejudice and criminality. With his recent projects, Koplimets has been observing the themes related to traveling and migration under various economical and geopolitical conditions, including shopping tourism and commuting. One of the most common features in Koplimets’ artwork is the psychological aspect – his large-scale installations influence the viewers’ spatial experience and perception.

He has an MA degree in Photography (Estonian Academy of Arts, 2013) and has finished two year postgraduate programme at HISK (Higher Institute for Fine Arts, Belgium, 2021). He has received the Estonian Artist Laureate Salary (2020) and he was nominated for the main art prize in Estonia (Köler Prize, 2013). Koplimets has participated in various exhibitions in Estonia and abroad. Recent exhibition projects include: Belonging (Hunt Museum, Ireland, 2022), Art in the Comfort Zone? The 2000s in Estonian Art (Kumu Art Museum, Estonia, 2021) and Sonsbeek´s Conjunctions programme (Park Sonsbeek, Netherlands, 2021). His works are included in various collections in Europe, e.g., Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Musée de l’Elysée and Art Museum of Estonia. Koplimets has also participated in different art residency programmes, e.g., EIB Institute’s Artists Development Programme (Luxembourg, 2019) and Helsinki International Artist Programme (Finland, 2015).

Architecture Open Lecture Series: Kārlis Bērziņš, Dagnija Smilga, Niklāvs Paegle / ĒTER (Latvia)

The series of open architecture lectures will take place this spring under the title “Close enough” and will bring architects from Latvia and Lithuania to the stage in Tallinn. We will examine how our neighbours operate topics arising from similar built environments and history. The lectures are intended for students and professionals from any and all disciplines – not just in the field of architecture. All lectures take place in the large auditorium of EKA, are in English and free of charge.

On March 31, the Latvian architectural collective ĒTER, led by Kārlis BērziņšDagnija Smilga and Niklāvs Paegle, will arrive in Tallinn. ĒTER is an architectural practice founded in 2018 in Riga, focusing on space inspired by nature, technology and modern culture. When looking at the city, culture and living patterns, they preferably move in uncharted areas. As a natural part of the architectural firm, they see strategic and conceptual thinking, inventing their own tasks and involving international experts. ETER are architects, researchers and teachers whose fields range from the Baltic coast to the Alps.

Why are the Baltics our focus for this spring? Read lecture series’ curator Johan Tali’s short interview to find out.

Artist,  Assoc. Prof. VAA Kaunas Faculty Monika Žaltauskaitė Grašienė Žaltė will introduce Textile Department student works and  herself as an artist of the jacquard weaving technology in the context of contemporary art field: the technical one (knowledge how to do this) and the conceptual one (using possibilities providedby the technique to create the desired effect of the work). 

“Textiles have an incredible ability to be alive. What I mean by this is how it communicates a sense of substance, which is intimate to every human being. A fabric can hold both physical (heat, cold, protection) and rational (recall, memory) features. Each of us uses textile everyday in one way or another. Therefore, it is a common material that allows us to combine multiple experiences, collaborations and to understand the individual person.”
