Maajaam is a farm for art and tech situated in South of Estonia. It is is concentrated on researching of, experimenting with and reflecting on the relationships between people, technology and nature. Substituting the urban environment with a hilly rural landscape allows us to observe technology in it’s pure form. Mixing the past technological wonders of the historical farm with present day hi-tech offers us a shift in perspective. This perspective is projected through the prism of art.
Maajaam is operated by artists Timo Toots and Mari-Liis Rebane. We run an artist residency, a creative studio and an art park.
Maajaam (🎵) means "earth station" in Estonian.
We are situated situated near Otepää, South of Estonia, North-East Europe, on planet Earth, in the Solar system in the Milky Way galaxy.
It's a space for living and working in Southern Estonian nature. We are open for artists, designers,
film-makers, sound artists, musicians, writers etc who want to get out of town and spend some focused time for
themselves or their projects.
The new residency house will be opened in the first half of 2022.
