“Gateways” as access to Europe’s artistic diversity – 27 artists from 16 countries have taken up curator Sabine Himmelsbach’s invitation.

In the “Gateways” video clips, the participating artists introduce themselves and their works in “Kumu.” The clips arose during the installation of the exhibition on 11 and 12 May, 2011 in the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia.

Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead are gung-ho followers of Twitter. That is, they follow all Tweets within a radius of ten kilometers from the Kumu.
