Exhibition Comicleben draws indieberlin irrevocably in
There's a wonderful exhibition right now in the Museum Europäische Kulturen (Museum of European Cultures) that takes us right into the comic world. Not the stand- up sort but the drawn sort. With a look at the lives of seven people whose day-to-day lives are utterly bound up in the fascination for comic art and in its attendant aesthetic, including the star comic artist Marko Djurdjevic and the award-winning graphic novel author Ulli Lust, the exhibition draws us into the world of the comic, presenting the graphic novel, the independent comic, the Manga and its attendant Cosplayscene, as well as taking a look at comics in the GDR (the old East) and running us through the gamut of comic superheroes from Micky Mouse to Pogo. We experience the latest trend in the comic world, the webcomic, as well as being taken through the process of making a comic, from the first scribble to putting the finished product in the hands of the consumer.
It's completely cool, basically. Just wait for the next rainy day and go and check it out.
