Exhibition was about artist(s) who have to starve since it is difficult/impossible to earn money as an artist in Estonia. Before I went there I was sceptical about the exhibition, since it is difficult to earn money in Estonia in general for an average person. Meaning that artists' problems were taken out of context of the whole situation in the country. This lead me think about virtual non-existence of civil society/social  responsibility in Estonia, just like in the most of post-Soviet states. The worst thing is that no-one really talks about this obvious inconsistency.

However after visiting the exhibition I was more or less pleasantly surprised. It is not that I am an art critic/old complaining fart, it is just the reality of situation in here and now.
