Venue :

Kasárne Kulturpark Košice

To read is to look: to move between word and image, to navigate page to page. But a reader can also touch, listen, feel, ‘put on’ 3D glasses, scroll and be invited to try completely unexpected things.

The authors of the children’s books in this exhibition wield more than just words, pictures andpages. They explore different materials and textures. Cut paper. Create volumes. Work with ink and transparencies. Add accessories. Unhinge. Move beyond the traditional order of pages. Set

in motion. Leaf through a story on a very personal and sometimes experimental level – to expand a book’s possibilities.

They set new rules for the reader which involve senses other than sight. Rules that let the reader play, take action, feel a story and dive into it.

The rule and the game is an exhibition designed for the Transbook European project.

Transbook, Children’s Literature on the Move is a European initiative to promote the digital transition and internationalisation of the children’s publishing industry.

It is co-funded for 2014-2018 under the Europe Creative programme of the European Union, in partnership with Europäische Kinder - und Jugendbuchmesse (Saarbrucken, Germany), ART BASICS for CHILDREN (Brussels, Belgium), Tantàgora (Barcelona, Spain), Hamelin Culturale

Associazione (Bologna, Italy), Nobrow Ltd (London, United Kingdom), Literárne informačné centrum (Bratislava, Slovakia).
