About

Tallinn Photomonth programme publication available here (in Estonian, English and Russian)

Tallinn Photomonth is an artist led biennial of contemporary art and visual culture. Although started in 2011 by a group of artists working primarily with photography and video, the biennial has never been a narrowly media-based event, rather it looks more broadly at developments in art and society in a world mediated by cameras, screens and images.

The fifth Tallinn Photomonth takes place from 6 September to 3 November. Included in the main programme are three international group exhibitions at different art institutions in Tallinn, a film programme and a contemporary art fair.

A satellite programme will run in Tallinn’s public and commercial galleries. The exhibitions are contextualised through a programme of public events and an education programme for schools in Estonian and Russian.

Tallinn Photomonth 2019 is led by artistic director Laura Toots and managing director Kadri Laas-Lepasepp, assisted by coordinator Sille Kima, curatorial assistant Kaisa Maasik, public programme manager Kulla Laas, publication coordinator Piret Karro and educators Laura Arum-Lääts and Anastassia Langinen. Biennial’s visual identity is designed by Jaan Evart and Ott Kagovere, web site is programmed by Ranno Ait. Communication is supervised by Anastassia Dratšova, Natalie Mets and Piret Reinson. Art fair Foto Tallinn is led by Helen Melesk and Kadi-Ell Tähiste.
