MÄRZ was a non-profit project space in Tallinn old town, initiated and curated by Maarin Ektermann (Mürk) and Ingrid Ruudi in 2010 - 2011. The space operated as an open platform for projects from fields as diverse as visual arts, architecture, performance, literature and music, featuring exhibitions, workshops, screenings, artist talks, readings and performance evenings. It also included weekly reading groups on art theory, political philosophy, feminist social theory, and others; sometimes the space transformed into a venue for simultaneous chess playing, a restaurant pop-up, or a music video shooting location. A popular speakeasy called Panoptika also operated under the premises, helping to finance the project space. MÄRZ closed in late autumn of 2011 due to the start of large-scale reconstruction of the building.
