Behind the Curtain

“Behind the Curtain” is a project by Jane Jacobs at Vitriingalerii, Tallinn, Põhja pst 35. It is an installation on view around the clock September 9 through October 5, 2020.

There is a pensioner living “Behind the Curtain”. The data of Statistics Estonia shows that 25.1% of the population are pensioners. Sometimes we visit them behind the curtain; however, we do not live there, where you have to make both ends meet it with very limited resources. Estonian pensioners have the highest poverty risk in the EU. Pensioners are no marching the streets after Eurostat published its surveys according to which Estonian pensioners are the poorest compared to other pensioners in developed countries. We do not shift the curtain in order to see how the older generation survives. Will we step quietly behind the curtain? What will happen with the pension pillars? “Behind the Curtain” is an installation in Vitriingalerii by Jane Jacobs to emphasize this paradoxical normality.
