Students in Leipzig Book Fair 2014: Vilmantas, Rugile, Agne, Migle, Lauksmine and Vilte.

The “IAKH: Globus Galerie + Edition Lebensretter” invited students from Graphic Department, Vilnius Academy of Arts to show artist’s books, book art and prints in Leipzig Book Fair 2014. This was the second time when the Graphic Department had the exhibition space in Leipzig Book Fair. The first show of an artist’s books and prints from the Graphic Department was in 1997, in the old building of “Leipziger Messe”.

After 1997 many times I participated in Leipzig Book Fair as a Gallery and many times I was driven there with the students, professors and friends. But in 2014 the Graphic Department was the official participants of the Fair. It was a great joy and a great responsibility. It was not only good possibility to learn how to present the Graphic Department in the public space, how to exhibit artist’s books, typographical books and prints, but also to see the all process from “inside”.
