Sirp Names New Editor in Chief ({{commentsTotal}})

Ott Karulin, a theater scholar and critic, has been named the new head of culture weekly Sirp, bringing an end to the month-long saga which caused Minister or Culture Rein Lang to step down at the beginning of the month.

A commission tasked with finding the new editor in chief received 16 applications and finally picked Karulin over Jan Kaus who came second. Kaus is a writer who had criticized the previous editor Kaur Kender and had put his name forward a month ago.

Karulin said that he will focus more on the art of criticism and the integration of different fields.

Minister of Culture Lang resigned at the beginning of December after pressure from creative unions, who accused the government of meddling in naming Kender, an alternative Generation X novelist, as interim chief of Sirp in November.

Kender, who immediately sacked many senior editors, himself resigned at the end of November.
