The revised English edition of Notes on Space, first published in Estonian in 2012, is a concise summary of the monumental paintings, supergraphics, and art realised in mosaic technique in mainly Soviet-era Estonia. An essay and short descriptions of all the 94 depicted monumental works written by art historian Gregor Taul accompany Paul Kuimet's detailed photography. The book gives an excellent overview of the art in public space in Estonia before the so-called percentage law came into force, of the Soviet-era "synthesis of the arts" and the fate of the works in the working class lunch rooms, cultural houses and apartment buildings under capitalism.
Paul Kuimet (b. 1984) is a Tallinn-based artist who is currently in residence at WIELS. He works with photographic installations and 16 mm films, the subject matter of which ranges from landscapes and architecture to objects and works of art. His works often look at Modernist objects by way of highlighting their aesthetic, political and historical connotations that were perhaps hidden from the naked eye.

Gregor Taul (b. 1986) is a critic and curator based in Lisbon, currently working on his doctoral thesis on late Soviet monumental decorative art at the Universidade Católica Portuguesa. His main academic research topic is art in public space, in addition to monuments and murals of the Soviet era he is interested in contemporary public art commissions, especially the One Percent Act.
Laura Herman (b. 1988, BE) is an independent curator and writer whose work focuses on spatial infrastructure and the relationship between architecture, affect and human experience. Laura currently serves as a curator at La Loge, a Brussels-based space dedicated to contemporary art, architecture, and theory, and she is an editor at De Witte Raaf.

Tom Peacock My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542} Nov 21, 2022
Laura Hobson I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
