Stribefeber Comics Festival Kristiansand

In November 2016 I was a guest at Stribefeber Comicfestival in Kristiansand, Norway! In the Goethe-Institutes workshop with artists from Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Great Britain and germany we sketched first ideas for the comics-project “Picture Politics”. The website is already online! You can find it HERE. After my lecture “Human rights, history, and my comics” we had a lively discussion, and I am happy about two great articles in the Norwegian comics magazine “Serinett”: “En familie som formet Tyskland” and “Dypdykk i jødisk historie” by Trond Sätre.
