The 1st Liber.ac Academic Book Fair, 2010 – Stars of East Asia in the Slovene Sky (May 19th – 21st) 

At the inauguration, the participants were addressed by Prof Valentin Bucik, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Mr Zoran Janković, Mayor of the Municipality of Ljubljana, Prof Radovan Stanislav Pejovnik and Dr Stojan Pelko, State Secretary at the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia. The programme was enriched by Nagisa Moritoki, PhD, and the concert presented by the students of Chinese from the Department of Asian and African Studies of the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana.

In the year when Ljubljana was the World Book Capital, the idea of a new book fair came to life, which allowed the publishers of scientific and expert publications to present themselves to the broader public. Along with university faculties from all over Slovenia, the Faculty of Arts created Liber.ac, an academic book fair that received favourable reaction. The fair hosted 25 exhibitors and was held in Foerster’s Garden from 19 to 21 May. The accompanying programme, intended for the broader public, was marked by Eastern Asia. Special attention was drawn to the presentation of Japanese and Chinese literature, including the youngest participants, who were able to get acquainted with this world through fairy-tales and workshops in which they created their own books in the Japanese style and got to know Chinese calligraphy and Korean Hangul writing. Visitors to the book fair participated in traditional Japanese tea rituals and Asian dances, but they were also introduced to Eastern Asia through the lenses of an artist’s camera. The accompanying programme ended with a multimedia stage play by the students, titled The Dangerous History of Yellow Danger, performed at Cankarjev dom.

Liber.ac 2010 programme: Wednesday, Thursday in Friday.

The 5th Liber.ac Academic Book Fair, 2014 – From Emona to Avalon and Further (May 20th – 22nd)

In 2014, Ljubljana celebrated 2000 years of Emona and the Liber.ac Academic Book Fair celebrated its first five years. From the 20th to the 22nd of May, in the immediate vicinity of former temples, the forum and the antique basilica, the streets were lively again. In the Foerster’s Garden behind the Faculty of Arts, one could meet writers, poets, illustrators and translators. With words, music and images, it was possible to travel from Emona all the way to the coasts of the magical Avalon and further onward in search of a new world. In workshops, children got to meet Jason and the Argonauts, teenagers could listen to poetry in English and adults, to critical words of committed literature. Just a stone’s throw from the now Roman road, the visitors participated in more or less serious quizzes to test their broader knowledge, round-tables were held on socially critical themes, travelogue lectures took place and visitors were given the possibility to browse through a rich offer of scientific and academic books at individual stalls. Ancient Romans were already aware of the importance of a healthy mind and a healthy body – at Liber.ac, the visitors could exercise both. Dowload publiactiona: Od Rudyarda Kiplinga do Alice Munro – Biobibliografije Nobelovih nagrajencev za književnost iz angleško govorečih dežel

The 7th Liber.ac Academic Book Fair, 2016 – Journey to the east (May 24th – 26th) 

In 2016, the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana organised the Liber.ac Academic Book Fair, which took place in the Foerster’s Garden from the 24th to the 26th of May. The exhibitors presented and offered new publications from the field of the academic press. The accompanying programme was marked by the 20th anniversary of the Department of Asian Studies of the Faculty of Arts, titled Journey to the East. The highlight was a performance designed as a satirical allegory of a popular traditional Chinese story Journey to the East. The original story traces the pilgrimage of Buddhist monk Xuanzangu, who is on his way to India, accompanied by three companions, in search of precious sutra that will help people out of ignorance. Parallel to this story, the staff and students of the department played out various motifs that attracted  Western people to East Asia. Two extraordinary experts on the region, long-time correspondent from Beijing, Zorana Baković and renowned Chinese philosopher Wu Xiaoming, discussed China as a source of wisdom and a new centre of power. The music and dance programme was also of great variety. In The Samurai from Kuroda and other Japanese Folk Songs, the lover of traditional Asian wind instruments, Florence Gacoin-Marks, played the Skakuhachi, a Japanese flute, while students in Japonology told stories about hard labour in mines, river rafting and the tragic destinies of the male and female characters. At the final concert, titled The Orange Globe, Jana S. Rošker sang classical Chinese lyrical poetry set to jazz melodies and translated into Slovenian. A special spectacle was cosplay – a fashion catwalk of popular characters from manga and anime. The visitors could experience the culture of Eastern Asia in a rather direct way – by taking part in a Japanese tea ritual, putting on a traditional Korean dress, called a hanbok, and learning how to properly bow. Of course, the stars of the fair were the books: in highlight were authors devoted to research on Asian, Islam and migrations, literary translators of the languages of Eastern Asia and other literary creators and theorists.  

Organised by: the programme accompanying the 20 year anniversary of the Department of Asian Studies at the Faculty of Art was organised in cooperation with the Ljubljana University Press, the Book Store, the Central Humanist Library, the Physical Education Division, the Student Choir and the Octet and Symphonic Orchestra of the Faculty of Arts. The programme was diversified by the Taiwan Study Centre, the Department of Musicology at the Faculty of Arts, the International Council for Traditional Music, the Embassy of India, the Confucius Institute Ljubljana, the Savsko naselje Elementary School, the Shodokan Association, the Shubukan Association, the Touhou Association, the Slovenian Cinematheque, Cankarjev dom, the Slovenian Association of Taijuquan CSN, the Taijiquan Institute, Shaolin Temple Ljubljana and the publishing houses presented at the book fair.
