Meine ersten 80.000 Wörter

After ten years without direct participation, this year we returned to Frankfurt Book Fair, where we had our own space in Pavilion 4.1, dedicated to Art and Literature. At the same time, an exhibition on Media Vaca’s book My First 80,000 Words was held as part of the programme ‘España Pais Plural 2019’. The exhibition consisted of a wall display featuring the 333 illustrations which compose the book of the same title, framed individually, allowing the spectator to observe them in detail and acquire at a glance the impression of the whole.

The framed work, which is currently located at the Frankfurt Cervantes Institute, will be touring the Cervantes Centres in Germany and some of the art schools that have requested it —Hamburg, Leipzig and Stuttgart—, as part of the ‘España País Invitado de Honor’ activity programme of the 2021 Frankfurt Book Fair.
