Estonian Union of Photography Artists (FOKU) was created by 10 artists in 2007 to unite and represent its professional members. Today FOKU has 50 members.


FOKU aims to introduce and develop contemporary art and visual culture as well as to engage different audiences in the discussion about art. The mission of the union is to broaden society’s interest towards contemporary visual culture and to increase the knowledge of Estonian art scene internationally.


Since 2011 FOKU has organised Tallinn Photomonth – an artist led biennial of contemporary art and visual culture. With its every edition the biennial presents remarkable works by Estonian and international artists. Tallinn Photomonth looks at developments in art and society in a world mediated by cameras, screens and images. Since 2016 Tallinn Photomonth is organised together with Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center.
