The exhibition, created in collaboration with artists, anthropologists, folklorists, architects and interior architects, deals with the change and functioning of rural life in modern Estonia through Käsmu village and as a summer resort of Käsmu phenomenon, where batteries have been recharged for centuries and abroad. Important topics are feeling of place, memory and relationship with nature. In the Shipyard you can see paintings, graphics, installations, videos and photos from 19 authors, many of whom are related to Käsmu and based on autobiographical facts in their works.
The second part of the work has grown out of the summer internship in Käsmu and interviews with local residents. Several works document the Soviet-era Käsmu moves of Moscow’s conceptualists, who later became world-famous.
