The book accompanying the exhibition “Raul Meel. Dialogues with Infinity” at the Kumu Art Museum (09.05.–12.10.2014) provides the first comprehensive survey of the oeuvre of Raul Meel, an avant-garde classic.

Raul Meel is one of the most significant representatives of conceptual art and concrete poetry in Eastern Europe, and he is known as Estonia’s most renowned autodidact and outsider. In the West, Meel’s experimental work was recognised with many awards as early as the 1970s, and the artist received invitations to many distinguished exhibitions. In the 80s and 90s, Meel’s talent and large-scale work also started to be recognised at home. Raul Meel has participated in numerous exhibitions at home and abroad and has received many important awards.

The authors of the articles examine Raul Meel’s various creative outputs, and a large section with reproductions and biographical photos provides a thorough survey of the artist’s work. The art historian Eha Komissarov, who is the exhibition’s co-curator, has written the first extensive overview of Raul Meel’s work, and has created a dialogue between it and Western art trends. The other co-curator, Raivo Kelomees, who is an artist and critic, as well as a professor of new media, deals with Meel’s most famous work, “Under the Sky”. The art historian and semiotician Virve Sarapik writes about the typewriter drawings called “Proper Names”, and the writer, artist and linguist Erkki Luuk presents an experimental text in dialogue with Meel’s text-based work.
