Peeter Linnap, CEO of “Factory of History”
– a trick with two mirrors and four reflections
First, let’s take a quick look at Johannes Pääsuke’s (1892–1918) “Self portrait” from 1914 (?). This is one of the most iconic pictures in the history of Estonian photography – Johannes Pääsuke’s panoramic self-portrait, a trick image with two mirrors and four reflections. We’ll come back to this later.
And now to the main subject of this short presentation – Peeter Linnap, one of the most outstanding conceptual photo artists in newly independent Estonia back in the 1990s.
Presentation at Riga Photography Biennial symposium Now Memories.
Presentation discusses the creative strategies of Peeter Linnap: a pioneering Estonian contemporary artist, photography historian and theoretician.
