 "Comics from Berlin. Images of a city"


Challenging, diverse and funny – that's comics from Berlin! From an anarchical fanzine to a narratively elaborate graphic novel, all known varieties of the comic are at home here, supported by an enthusiastic network of big and small publishing houses. Therefore, apart from local artists, international cartoonists are increasingly using the city as a source of inspiration and a location for their own work. The exhibition "Comics from Berlin. Images of a city" does not only want to convey the strong creative energy of the scene but to especially show how the city itself becomes a subject. While looking at the recent and historical development of Berlin, the comic presents itself as an art form that is highly sensitive, pointed, reflexive and has an enormous stylistic wealth.
