Bang! Evolution of Graphic Novels in Geneva

I recently moderated a talk at Station Beirut on the Emergence of Comics in Geneva & Arab Graphics Movement. Here the details of the talk:

Panel: Raphael Oesterlé (lead Geneva curator), Michelle Standjofski (ALBA), Lena Merhej (Samandal), Karma Tohme (Plan Bey), David Habchy (Waraq), Alex Baladi (artist), Massimo Di Ricco (moderator)

Presentation of BANG! exhibition and dialogue about dynamics and parallels between Geneva / Beirut comics communities and trajectories.

Explore the emergence of Lebanese comics, the nascent transnational Arab graphics movement, its potential and the commitment of many artists to bring the medium directly to the public sphere during significant historical moments.
