On the upcoming (very) long weekend from Thursday to Sunday, 20-23 November the Estonian Contemporary Art Museum is hosting the off-season show “Damage Assessment”. The exhibition brings together twelve artists, who base their works on the building they are exhibiting at. At a time, when it is cold outside, even colder inside and the future of of the museum hangs by a thread, it is positively surprising to see how much energy the artists are able to draw from the situation. They propose solutions, spin the negative aspects towards aburdist humour and at times just lay out the hard facts as they are. The building of EKKM has never before seen so much attention at one time. It is tucked in, patched up and entertained like a child with a fever.
