Studies on Art and Architecture (Kunstiteaduslikke Uurimusi), the journal of the Estonian Society of Art Historians and Curators, publishes research articles on art history, theory and visual culture, special issues, and reviews of books and events.
Studies on Art and Architecture was first published in 1976. Until 2002 it was issued irregularly as a collection of articles. In 2003 the format was reorganised into a quarterly journal (often published in double issues).
The goal of the journal is to support and promote studies of visual art, architecture, design and visual environment. In this respect, Studies on Art and Architecture is the central and essential forum for publishing and exchanging academic thought in Estonia. Special issues focus on narrower topical matters. Previously, special issues have considered the problem of realism, the social determination of the living environment, and the relationships between the object and its milieu. The Discussion section includes self-reflective writings on methodologies, and various problems and developments in art history and theory.
The articles are published in Estonian, English or German; all articles in Estonian are accompanied by summaries in English or German of approximately a quarter of the length of the article.
