Visual narratives for personal stories
Graphic novels are proving themselves the unlikely arena for European artists and writers to come to confront difficult and untold 20th-century experiences.
Join Czech artists Tomas Kucerovsky and Toy Box, two of the authors of the collective project We’re Still at War and German-American author and illustrator Nora Krug (Heimat), to find out what drew them to tell personal and collective stories in graphic form.
Heimat by Nora Krug is a powerful and deeply affecting graphic memoir that explores identity, guilt and the meaning of home for a post-war German. Nora documents her journey investigating the lives of her family members under the Nazi regime, visually charting her way back to a country still tainted by war.
In collaboration with the Czech Centre London and Karolinum Press, supported by CzechLit – Czech Literary Centre, a section of the Moravian Library. Presented in partnership with EUNIC and the European Writers' Tour.
