Travel to Leipzig Book Fair
Travel Time: 21-27 March 2017
This year Lithuania was the official guest of the Leipzig Book Fair 2017. Graphic Art Department from the Vilnius Academy of Arts was the partner of the project “Lithuania in the Leipzig Book Fair”. So it was good reason to go to Leipzig with the students, to meet artist’s book creators, to see the new tendencies in book design, to visit exhibition in Berlin and Leipzig.
It was good possibility to discuses with the students about book design and artist’s books, about prints and exhibitions and installations in the Leipzig Book Fair near books, near artist’s book creators. And it was nice to meet old art friends near books, prints and artist’s books.
We have been with our auto, so we had the possibility not only to stay in Leipzig Book Fair, but also on the road to Leipzig to visit Lodz, where was wonderful exhibition of prints installations of world famous artists from Canada, like Davida Kidd, Walter Jule, Sean Caulfield and other.
Also we have visited Berlin, some museums and exhibitions. In the “Kunstbibliothek” we have found small and nice artist’s books exhibition of Nora Schattauer – “50 Workbooks”. The exhibition had 50 artist’s books.
