Exhibition "Unborn futures in Estonian modernism" by Laura Lins and Roland Reemaa

Laura Lins's and Roland Reemaa's project "Unborn futures in Estonian modernism" in summer 2018 at the Heimtal Museum in Viljandi county is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia.

"Unborn futures in Estonian modernism" is an exploratory art project aimed at critically revising the impact of modernism in the Republic of Estonia in the first decades of the 20th century and creating an additional story through the hyper-real maquette photographs through which society can be understood.

The research is based on the magazine Taluperenaine (Landlady), published from 1927 to the World War II. Interiors of modernist farmhouses are being constructed as large-scale maquettes and photographs. A selective three-dimensional design creates stories of unborn modernist Estonia, the possibility which never came to exist because of the ideological reorganizations, but its spatial and cultural influence is, in fact, real.

The exhibition will be opened on July 27, 2018, at the Heimtal Museum of the Estonian National Museum in Viljandi county.
