Approaching history through graphic novels.

Free entrance

Future prospects remain inextricably bound up with the past on both an individual and collective level. As we examine our past in terms of the questions new and old and issues current and chronic which the present requires us to reframe and discuss anew, people, events and interpretations shed light on the past from unexpected viewpoints, making our relationship with History more creative and alive.

Approaching history through graphic novels.
The popularity achieved by the graphic novel in recent years coupled with the autobiographical nature of many of the genre’s finest achievements provide the starting point for an examination of how comics can be an ideal vehicle for narrating History.


Zeina Abirached will not attend the event, due to a last-minute problem.
