At the 55th international art biennale in Venice, Estonia is represented by the artist Dénes Farkas with the project “Evident in Advance”, curated by Adam Budak. Dénes Farkas is a Tallinn-based post-conceptual photo artist, who has been focusing on social structures since the second half of the 2000s and presenting them in a laconic artistic expression, which unites photography and the photo caption. His works have been purchased to the collections of the Art Museum of Estonia, as well as by private individuals.


One out of eight wage earners in Estonia or approximately 65,000 peop-le are ready to look for work abroad, it appears from TNS Emor's annual survey of wage earners' expectations. The study reflected in-creased readiness to change jobs. Every third employee is considering changing jobs within a year and the share of such persons has increased from year to year along with the decrease in unemployment, the polling company said.

– Alan Ago Koerv –  Vaba Eesti Sõna  - Thursday 30th May 2013 


I read this article on the back page of ‘Vaba Eesti Sõna’ with great interest as I am both a linguist and a lover of poetry. I agree wholeheartedly with Alan Ago Koerv when he states that translating poetry demands and excellent knowledge of both the source and target languages. As he states, people may have lived in an English speaking country for decades and still not have acquired enough in depth knowledge of the nuances of English to be able to convey the original intentions of the poet. I suspect that Alan, like myself, is a second generation Estonian who was born in the USA (in my case the UK) but brought up bilingually. 


Jäätise/hooaeg (ice cream season) is in full swing and Estonians love their ice cream. It's particularly great to see older people enjoying jäätis on the street and in parks. It's an indulgence that's hard to resist even for people on a strict budget, as most Estonian senior citizens are. Jäätis is a quintessential part of suvi (summer), especially in northern climes, where the warm weather and explosion of nature is long-awaited. Jää = ice and jäätis could be translated as "something icy". The word for cream (koor) is not part of the word in Estonian, but is definitely part of the product. In the case of the koore/jäätis, the package states: 15% koorejäätis, which literally means 15% "cream ice cream", i.e. 15% milk fat.
