Catalonia in Venice 2017_La Venezia che non si vede

The Institut Ramon Llull is participating in the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia with the project La Venezia che non si vede / Unveiling the Unseen by Antoni Abad, curated by Mery Cuesta and Roc Parés. The project is being presented at the Cantieri Navali de Castello from May 13th to November 26th. It is a sensorial interpretation of the city of canals, created in collaboration with people who are blind or visually impaired, a collective who uses their senses in a different and unique way. Through the shared exchange of both the experiences and difficulties of their daily lives, less obvious urban forms are revealed, allowing for a new map of public space to be drawn up that is usable by everyone.

The Bologna Book Fair exponentially increases international agents’ interest in children’s and young adult literature in Catalan

The presence of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands at the Bologna Children’s and Young Adult Book Fair as Guest of Honour represents a huge step forward for the Institut Ramon Llull, which quadrupled its appointments with international agencies and publishers with respect to the previous year’s Fair. Thus, the IRL’s staff held 125 meetings with publisher’s representatives from 32 different countries, of which more than half were with publishers that were still unfamiliar with the IRL’s services. Most of these meetings were held with representatives from France (19), Italy (13) and the United Kingdom (13), but meetings were also held with publishers from, among others, the USA, China, India, Turkey and Argentina. These meetings are useful for spreading the word about the children’s and young adult literature scene in Catalan and also the IRL’s support for book translation and illustration.
