IMAGE as TEXT

Since its start in the year of 2000, the International Vilnius Book Fair is the biggest and most important book fair in the Baltic countries. It is also the popular cultural event in Lithuania, and the main annual meeting place of publishers, authors and readers.

It gives a possibility to evaluate the whole publishing market of Lithuania and the neighbouring countries, and to get to know new names of the literary world.

It is also the popular cultural event in Lithuania,  the main meeting place of publishers, authors and readers. The main focus of the Fair is on books and cultural events, as well as on the possibility for authors to interact with their readers.

 

The 21st century has pulled us into a trivial cycle of high-speed information. We are immersed in a constant flow of images, pictures, videos, memes, social media ads, and heaps of other visual stimulation sources. An image is easily noticeable, and its message becomes clear within a fraction of a second.

Similarly, a text in a book has gradually taken shape of an image by appearing in comic books or graphic novels.

How is this increasingly visual development of information affecting our lives? What does it bring? How important is an image in a text and should it be important at all?

Vilnius Book Fair 2021 will offer its visitors texts and images in the context of Image as text unravelling through art exhibitions, live conversation and discussions, presentations of the best books and authors of the year.
