Eesti Arhitektuurikeskus (EAK)
The Estonian Centre of Architecture’s activities focus on contemporary Estonian architecture and its future. Its mission is to develop and promote contemporary Estonian architecture and urban planning, raise architectural awareness and collect, exchange, mediate and distribute architectural information in Estonian and abroad. Its aim is to integrate architectural knowledge and competence in other areas of society by contributing to innovation and development in related fields. The founders of EAK want to cross borders in social and cultural meaning to reach a new audience by catering to different levels: individuals, organisations and nationally, regionally and globally. EAK is one of the institutions implementing Estonian architectural policy.
In addition, EAK – which is located in the centre of Tallinn, in the rapidly developing Kalasadam area – is an inspiring environment for hosting seminars, training courses, receptions and other events.
This is the meeting place of creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. Creative Estonia contributes to the appreciation and development of the creative economy and enterprising creativity and showcases Estonia’s creative achievements at the international level.
EKKM (Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia)
EKKM (Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia) is a self-established non-profit initiative, that situates itself somewhere between official state-run institutions and artist-run-do-it-yourself venues. It is an unconventional concept of a contemporary art museum that works towards producing, exhibiting, collecting and popularizing local and international contemporary art while altering the prevailing working methods of established art institutions. It is a tool of self-establishment for younger generation artists, curators and art students. EKKM was founded by Anders Härm, Elin Kard, Marco Laimre and Neeme Külm. Since 2016 it is run by Marten Esko and Johannes Säre who joined the team in 2011.
EKKM operates from late 2006 as an ex-squat that has now legalized its premises in a previously abandoned office building of Tallinn’s former heating plant, right beside Kultuurikatel and Linnahall. EKKM has been producing exhibitons and collecting art from 2007 and since 2010 has established its regular exhibition season that takes place from April until November. In 2011 EKKM initiated its own contemporary art prize, the Köler Prize, that is accompanied by an exhibition of the nominees. From then on, it has become a constantly evolving area of creative initiative where 2013 marks the opening of Lugemik Bookshop alongside the exhibition porduction company Valge Kuup. Subsequently the student gallery ISFAG and project-space-like EKKM’s Café followed.
EKKM is situated at Põhja pst. 35, right beside Kultuurikatel (Tallinn Creative Hub) and Linnahall.
