Between the 15th of July and the 31st of August we spent a six week MOKS residency in the small Estonian village of Mooste, creating a body of work to address themes that emerged during the first week of our stay.

Line of enquiry

The process of selecting histories – What history gets remembered / treasured / selected / re-enacted / brought back / made use of / funded / valued / renovated / visited / protected / politicised, and what history gets ignored / neglected / forgotten / blocked out / physically destroyed / frowned upon …and in what ways?

How do people in Mooste (Both us and those who live here on a more permanent basis) identify with and relate to different local sites? And how does this reflect or impact on an Estonian identity, and our Anglo-Germanic perceptions of this identity (or at least our attempts to understand and respond to this identity)?

Sub-themes: Forms of tourism in Mooste / Restoration and renovation / Potential through western eyes / The memory of space / The beauty/value of dereliction

Events and interventions:

1. MILK MESSENGERS
2. SAND MAPPING
3. THE BARONS CLOTHES
4. WINDOW PICTURES
5. THE MOPED PROCESSION
6. EXHIBITION
