Lugemik is one of the few independent publishing initiatives based in Estonia, founded in 2010 by graphic designer Indrek Sirkel and artist Anu Vahtra and joined by graphic designer Ott Kagovere in 2018. Sirkel and Vahtra will present a book that accompanied a recent exhibition at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design, “Published by Lugemik: Printed matter from 2010–2019,” about their publishing practice over the last 10 years. The exhibition included a selection of books and artwork published by Lugemik, providing an overview of how various two- and three-dimensional works, text-based works, and performances have been translated into book format. The presentation will include readings by two contributors of the publication: researcher and PhD student in Art History at Yale University, Mia Kang, and artist, librarian, and publisher Lieven Lahaye.
Presented by Lugemik on September 20th, 2019. Recording courtesy of Blank Forms.
