Stories have existed since people started pronouncing the first words and visual art even before. Stories around the fire, stories to make people scared or obedient, stories of ancestors, oral tales and finally written stories. Cave art, sculpture, painting. And yet little has been said about literature and its relation to visual art. This talk explores how literature has historically inspired visual art, and how the written word has always gone hand-in-hand with the visual image. Secondarily, we will explore how museums handle literature and the roles literature plays in this context.

Vanessa Souli is an Art Manager and Arts Writer. She holds a BA in English Language and Literature from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and an MA in Arts & Heritage Management from Maastricht University. Vanessa completed her Master Thesis on Immersive Approaches to Literature in and outside the Museum and she organised a self-curated exhibition on poetry and photography in 2017. She is very interested in the relation of the written word and visual art and what forms this expression can take. More info about the lecturer: (
