Opening event of the Festival of Books and Voices
August 31st, Thursday, 5-7pm

The Festival of Books and Voices opens on the 31st of August, Thursday, 5-7pm.
We are launching the program with a presentation by Indrek Sirkel focusing on Lugemik Publishing & Bookshop. The the exhibition Lugemik 100 Books, a window installation by Marge Monko, and an audio archive installation by Dear Friend: Tracks as Envelopes will be installed in the space.

Lugemik is an independent publishing initiative based in Tallinn, Estonia, founded in 2010 by designer Indrek Sirkel and artist Anu Vahtra.

Marge Monko’s work revolves around gender – emphasising the body and its photographic representation. Many of her works have a link to history and are influenced by psychoanalysis, feminism, and the theory of visual culture. Depending on the subject, Monko has employed methods such as documenting, staging, and appropriating existing images, often through a combination of these different approaches.

Tracks as Envelopes was an on-site recording & broadcasting session hosted by oH radio at the Dear Friend exhibition at EKA Gallery in September 2022. 44 letters were read from the Dear Friend archive by the visitors of the exhibition. This audio archive was designed and developed by Paula Buskevica with support from Alejandro Bellón Ample. oH radio lives within the Graphic Design MA program at the Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA). oH radio was initiated in 2021 by Paula Buskevica. Thanks to all the voices of the letters. See the project here.
