group comics exhibition

TINTA Comics Festival 2021 / Vodnik Homestead Gallery, Ljubljana

OPENING: Thursday, 7 October 2021, at 8 PM
Audiovisual performance: KONS5 (Nebo Puppet Theater)
Between 6 and 10 October, Ljubljana will host the Tinta International Comics Festival, which once again brings a diverse selection of top exhibitions and events in the company of high-profile local and foreign guests and invites you to expand your comics horizons.
The group comics exhibition Metamorphoses as part of the Tinta Comics Festival 2021 brings together three recent Stripburger publishing feats – three comic book albums based on evergreen literary works. The first is the resounding work Kafkaesque by American author Peter Kuper, an award-winning comic book artist with a distinctly recognizable style and an experienced comics adapter of literary works. This time, he is presenting a striking adaptation of the timeless short stories of one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Franz Kafka.
You will also be able to see original pages from the monographic collection of visual interpretations of poetry by Andrej Štular, Ostri Ritmi, a recently published work inspired by Srečko Kosovel’s poetry, as well as original scenes from the just reprinted Butalci V Stripu by Marko Kociper (who is, by the way, diligently planning the sequel, to be published in 2022). The mouthwatering exhibition features a series of originals, screen prints and other prints from the above-mentioned editions.
The exhibition opening will also include the KONS5 audiovisual performance by the Nebo Puppet Theater, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year.
On display until 14 November 2021.
