EKA’s KVI (Kunstiteaduse ja visuaalkultuuri instituut) researcher Margaret Tali published an article in collaboration with Ieva Astahovska at Museum of Modern Art’s online platform Post, which gives an overview of their curated international exchange and research project “Communicating Difficult Pasts” (2019-2022).

Estonian Academy of Arts and Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art are partners in this project, which approaches Baltic history as global and closely entangled with its adjacent regions. It proposes to see the reworking of past traumas as potential for creating new solidarities. The article offers an overview about the international symposium “Prisms of Silence” at EKA, summer school held in Kūldiga and exhibition “Difficult Pasts. Connected Worlds” organised in the Latvian National Gallery of Arts and showcases works by artists Zuzanna Hertzberg (PL), Vika Eksta (LV) and Quinsy Gario (NL) commissioned for the project. The next exhibition in the project is planned to take place in Vilnius National Gallery in spring 2022.
