Estonia / Identity - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Estonia
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Karin Laansoo, Eero Epner
A courageous vision composed of private and political, social and anthropological, physical and symbolic perspectives. A collection of perceptions - some poetic, some cutting – that proudly aim to overcome the ideological and psychological barriers that survived the "Singing Revolution" which, in 1989, liberated Estonia from the Soviet era. 140 works, the result of the creativity and commitment of 140 artists from the smallest among the Baltic nations, that tell the story of the consolidation of an identity along with a dizzying espousal of the contemporary world: today's Estonian artistic landscape is already preparing its future.
Estonia / Identity. Contemporary Artists from Estonia is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
