The Tallinn Photo Month Biennale of Contemporary Art will be held this year for the sixth time (01.09–17.10). Its main exhibition will be curated  by the Creative Association of Curators TOK, who were selected based on the results of a closed competition. The exhibition will take place at the Estonian Museum of Contemporary Art (EKKM) from 3 to 17 October 2021. Tallinn Photo Month is an international biennial of contemporary art, initiated by the Estonian Union of Photographers (Foku) in 2011. This year “Photomonth” and its main exhibition will contribute to the establishment of cooperation between the art-cultural communities of the Baltic region and Russia. For the first time, curators from Russia have been invited to develop the concept of the main exhibition.  The exhibition and symposium will bring together artists and researchers from different countries - from Sudan to Ireland - who, in their practice, turn to the issues of decolonizing architecture and abandoning the hierarchical approach to the formation of urban spaces and communities.
