Comics for Grown-Ups: An Illustrated Literary Evening at 11.02.2014, 20:00

Beit Avi Chai EVENTS - 9


Tuesday feb 11th

Beit Avi Chai presents "Comics for Grown-Ups": An Illustrated Literary Evening

Tuesday ǀ 11.2 ǀ 8:00 PM


Comics and their older brother, the graphic novel, have been undergoing an amazing blossoming over the past two decades. Something that was once considered as inferior literature, childish and shallow, has become a genuine type of work, relevant, biting, intensive, ambivalent and somewhat autobiographical, and as such can also look honestly at reality and all its hardships.


During this fascinating event artists will demonstrate and discuss super heroism, anti-heroes, frames and speech bubbles that are taking a place of respect in contemporary literature, including Israeli literature.


Host: Rachella Zandbank, Editor at Keter Publishing House



Rutu Modan - Comics artist, illustrator and lecturer

Yirmi Pinkus - Comics artist, author and illustrator

Gilad Seliktar - Comics artist and illustrator


Price: NIS 30, Students: NIS 20.
