As part of the Estonian pavilion, this hour-long short film program spans over two decades of works showing the presence of performance in Estonian contemporary art, as seen through the camera. The program touches on questions of identity, while demonstrating the inherent fragility in today’s social constructs and relationships. The program features works by Jaan Toomik, Ene-Liis Semper, Mark Raidpere, Marko Mäetamm, Marge Monko, and Taavi Talve among others.
