An investment in its broadest sense is time, energy or some other resource contributed in the hope of a future gain.
The panel discussion marking the ending of this year’s fair will focus on investing into East-European art and on different kinds of giving and getting: economic, social and cultural gains. The panelists will also touch upon the meaning of strategic philanthropy in the field of culture. It is clear that in the third decade of national independence the possibilities as well as the needs of the society are diversifying and those who have done well are ready to contribute to initiatives with social or cultural potential.
The panel will include representatives of the galleries present at the fair: Temnikova & Kasela, Haus and Okapi; and Maarja Oviir-Neivelt, member of the East-European buying committee of Tate. The conversation will be led by art historian and curator Liisa Kaljula who works at the Estonian Art Museum and spends her summers travelling through Eastern Europe.
The event takes place in Estonian.
