Tracking down artist-run museums we recently ended up at Flo Kasearu’s House Museum in Tallinn, Estonia. A gorgeous wooden house is dedicated to the oeuvre of Flo Kasearu, who also lives there, curate the displays and gives tours. The house includes dozens of works by Flo eg. a hole in the attic from where you can look at things outside, neatly appropriated as art. And there is a slide instead of a staircase. And a sauna.

Self-Organised, edited by Stine Hebert and Anne Szefer Karlsen, is the third book in the Occasional Table series. "This new anthology of accounts from the frontline includes contributions by artist practitioners as well as their institutional counterparts that provide a fascinating account of the art world as a matrix of positions where the balance of power and productivity constantly shifts. Artists, curators and critics discuss empirical and theoretical approaches from Europe, Africa and South and North America on how self-organisation today oscillates between the self and the group, self-imposed bureaucratisation and flexibility, aestheticisation and activism.”
