IMAGINING LITHUANIA: 100 YEARS, 100 VISIONS, 1918 – 2018

We know from school that history consists of past events. However, history is much more than a list of old facts. It is also dreams, phantasies, desires, speculations and plans for the future, which, even if they remained just utopias, clearly reflect the spirit of the age, and moods and values prevalent at the time. The book “Imagining Lithuania: 100 years, 100 visions 1918-2018” offers to look at the unpredictable and turbulent 20th century through the possible scenarios of Lithuania’s development as envisaged by scientists, artists, enthusiasts, politicians and the society in the past. 100 visions constituting this publication allow to look at the history of Lithuania not only from the country’s perspective but also in the broader context of Europe’s modernisation, urbanisation and industrialisation. The essays of the book are divided into three sections – the interwar period in Lithuania (1918-1939), the Second World War and Soviet occupation (1940-1990), and the period following the Re-establishment of the State of Lithuania (since 1990), however, it also encourages the readers to deviate from the chronological reading and boldly explore their own vision of how this book could be read.
