Venice Biennale too expensive for Estonia

Estonia is reguarly represented with its own pavillion at the Venice Biennale. The costs involved could be better spent on other projects, criticises the daily Eesti Päevaleht: "The bitter truth is that neither the Ministry of Culture nor the Cultural Fund pay artists salaries, but they do support any and every trip to exhibitions abroad. The Venice Biennale is probably the only project for which artists are paid directly, but the majority of artists will never take part in it, whether because of disinterest, the kind of art they do or other reasons. ... It's not right that the function of modern art should be reduced solely to its ability to be exhibited, while all other aspects are consciously and systematically blended out. The Centre for Contemporary Arts should also ask itself critical questions from time to time about what is being shown abroad and why. Probably not all too much would happen if Estonia stayed away from Venice now and then and invested the money at home instead."
