When Johann Gutenberg invented movable
type books it resulted in an explosion of art. Now the book tradition is undergoing another change, as e-books read
online are becoming more common. What will the future hold in terms of reading, writing and the book as an object?
The usage of computers are evolving rapidly, going from not-so-intuitive, and sometimes even counter-intuitive, interaction
through external devices like a computer mouse or a trackpad, to soon being controlled by gestures, whole-body movements or
facial expressions. Is this the end of books as we know it? What impact will the digital age have on the usage
of paper, books, libraries? The Hungarian Multicultural Center invites artists exploring the wide spectrum of book art,
small-press art, mail art, mixed media artist's books, to submit their work to the 3rd edition of the international group
exhibition Library Thoughts, held in Barabas Villa Gallery, Budapest, August 27 - September 10, 2013.
