The 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair and the Pavilion of Georgia signifying the Honorary Guest Country was officially opened. Georgia was presented with the overall concept of Georgia - Made by Characters and it quickly grasped the focus of German audience.
On October 9-14, 72 Georgian writers will meet with foreign readers simultaneously on two separate stages at the Georgian pavilion and introduce Georgian literature, conduct discussions and answer the coresponding literary questions. The pavilion is also equipped with a variety of thematic spaces where visitors have the opportunity to get to know the Georgian foreign literature and culture, listen the sounds of Georgia, and to see the famous Magnum photography exhibition on display, as well as the translations of foreign-language books.
The Pavilion of Georgia was created by designer Gia Bochua.
The entire project was executed by the National Library of Georgia and the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia.
