"Right/Wrong". Marge Monko

10 EUR

Marge Monko’s new artists’ book “Right / Wrong” is based on one of the numerous health and beauty books, “Movement – a guarantee of female health and beauty” (1967) by Helena Voja─Źkova. This type of books were so common in the Soviet Union, that even in Estonia with population of 1,5 million people, print runs reached 60,000 and were then re-printed. Mainly, the books advocated a vitality of the mind and practices for a healthy body so that young women could be both attractive for men and effective at work. 

Monko’s publication is the first in the new series of artists’ books – Potato Books – published by Lugemik in cooperation with Center for Contemporary Arts, Estonia.
