As an independent art publisher, Lugemik has mapped a large part of the Estonian contemporary art and design landscape through numerous collaborations with artists, designers, theorists and cultural institutions. The exhibition focuses on the translation of an artwork into a reproducible object as a method for book-making, reflecting on topics related to publishing a book, such as graphic design, contemporary methods for art reproduction, and various forms of collaboration.
This extensive catalogue has contributions by the design critic and curator Kristina Ketola Bore (NO), researcher and PhD student in the history of art at Yale University, Mia Kang (US), artist, librarian and publisher Lieven Lahaye (BE), initiators of Knock! Knock! Books Else Lagerspetz & Loore Sundja (EE). In addition, the catalogue includes a selection of texts, previously published in different Lugemik books.[publisher's note]
