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 the country’s first and only contemporary art fair The Photographic 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.
