MEANWHILE, ELSEWHERE - 100 YEARS OF CZECH COMICS

The anniversary of 100 years since the founding of Czechoslovakia (1918), offers a unique opportunity to recapitulate national comic book history (and also the history of comics). The exhibition aims to present Czech works in a variety of forms, even in historical context. By focusing on the central genres, turning points and intercultural inspiration, it wants to narrate about modern Czech comics and its "first century".

They are the creators of the younger and mid generation, who have had a number of successful book realizations and other art projects.
