„How do these authors actually do it? How do they tackle such a complex construction that touches literature and visual art at the same time, as well as design and typography, that has to be ‘high art’ and ‘popular art’ all in one? How do they go through years of planning, research and progressively building up a narrative, until everything comes into one?
Our exhibition tries to deal with some of these questions, or raise new ones, by giving an insight into the tedious work process of several artists-authors of graphic novels. The exhibition brings to public view the ‘backstage’ work put into a graphic novel by presenting research, scripts, sketches, older versions alongside reiterations, pencil drawings, inked pages, speech bubbles layouts, coloured pages and more.“
