MATES available at Modern Graphics Berlin Prenzlauerberg

As of now Modern Graphics in Berlin Prenzlauerberg also carries my comic MATES! The Comic book store Modern Graphics has been around for ages but only this spring opened a shop at the Kastanienallee 79 in Prenzlauerberg. The store has my favorite pick of German comics and English language comics in Berlin and the Kastanienallee is such a classic good hangout. If you live in Berlin it’s worth checking in on their FB page from time to time because they have regular events like signings, performances and workshops.

Jet Exhibition View

My most recent exhibition was the taking part in the yearly Goldrausch presentation. I opted to show pages from my comic Jet, laying out the build up of grey tones and black and white lines which, for this comic, were on seperate pages. I presented them in multiple small black frames. One the second picture you can make out another image in the background which is a large portrait I made of Kurt Cobain, especially for this exhibition beacause the location was a church and the pages of Jet I chose centered on the theme of teenage idolization. I should probably add some detail photos later. Will do.

Comiclesung Renate and Rudolf

Slightly overdue, I am now showing some pictures here of the given comic reading of the short fantasy story „Renate and Rudolf„.  I really enjoyed having the microphone and the stage and the performance was made an all-round success and an enigmatic experience by the voice assistance of my Goldrausch colleague, the artist Lucie Biloshytskyy and the live produced sounds by hip hop musician and beats producer Asi-Es. I would love to do that again.

Six Conversations in Beton

My story „Six Conversations about Bland“ came out in the Berlin based German / French anthology Beton #8. The theme was ‚Nothing‘. The short story takes place in a reality show house. Housemate ‚Bland‘ was just voted out of the house and the remaining housemates discuss him in six conversations.

This is the third time I’ve joined the great team of people that make out Beton. Meet them here. You are all a bunch of lovelies. Looking forward to future contributions.

Comic Reading: Sunday October 16th 2016

The Goldrausch exhibition is coming to an end and we’re closing off with a finissage packed with performances.

I’m excited that as part of the evening I will be presenting one my short stories from my publication ‚Mates‘ in the form of a comic reading. I am especially looking forward to the reading because it’s the first time working together with ASI-ES, who will be producing the sound live with his sampler. Also, helping me with the voices, will be one of my colleagues at Goldrausch, artist Lucie Biloshytskyy.

The finissage starts at 4pm with a tour with art historian Dr. Ines Lindner, then the performances will start at 5pm, beginning with mine. The other performances will be „Do you hear them through your ears or in your head?“ by Kirstin Burckhardt; a performance by Alanna Lynch; „Karatetalk“ by Rike Horb; and ending with „Der Trancende Teppich“ by Anna Steinert.

Address is: St Johannes Evangelist | Auguststraße 90 in Berlin
