EXTENSION.EE. Reflection: Inward/Outward. Vol. III is a group showcase focusing on the Russian man with a close connection to Estonia and the authors paying him attention. Russia and Estonia have a very long history. In the XIII century the first Russian speakers began to settle on the shores of Chudskoye Lake.
Many Old Believers fled there from the prosecution of the church and governmental authority in the XVII century. A new inflow of Russians was caused by the revolution and the Civil War. Estonia became a part of the Soviet Union, which left a mark on both cultural and social levels. Today almost 30% of the citizens of Estonia are people whose mother tongue is Russian. Despite such a rich common history, Russian and Estonian communities in many aspects leave in different information, cultural and sometimes social spaces. What are the reasons and the conditions for that gap and what can it lead to? Building on the context and the theme of the exhibition were chosen several artists who address problems of the sociocultural bonds in the Estonian society. Their works raise social and political issues, aspects of morality and immorality, social and personal problems, doubts and phobias.
