Call for Entries for the participation in the 6th International Artist's Book Triennial Vilnius 2012.

Exhibition theme: "Love";

"If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing." 1Cor 13,1-3.
"Love is an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. Love may also be described as actions towards others (or oneself) based on compassion, or as actions towards others based on affection." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love

We are looking your interpretation of the theme of Love.
