"Put on Your Thinking Cap! The Hundred Faces of the University of Tartu" is a photo exhibition dedicated to the centenary of Estonia's national university.
Birgit Püve, one of Estonia's best-known portrait photographers, has photographed a hundred outstanding university researchers and faculty members with objects that best characterise their relationship with the university or their area of specialisation.
Mariann Raisma, director of the University of Tartu Museum, who's also behind the idea for the exhibition, said that the project was initiated to record the images of the people who shape the spirit of today's university for posterity in the form of an art project. "We wanted to portray people from various fields with an artefact, thereby underlining the university's historical continuity and the connection the person portrayed has with research and science." Most of the selected objects come from the University of Tartu Museum, but the personal possessions of the subjects have also been used.
