Czech Comics in Leipzig : It's not always about super heroes

Bang!, Zack!, Uff! – the Sound of Comics reads, in Germany. In Czech staple Prásk rather stands!, Haf! or Švih!. The accompanying images, however, usually tell similar stories: of masked heroes with muscle mountains, the escape, thanks to the springs at the feet of your Nazi pursuers; of buxom women to travel only with heels, a bra and a Cape on his shoulders through the space, and with a creak the way to shoot. Stories like this unfold, especially in the drawings – even if the viewer can not a word of Czech.

This is currently in the exhibition "Meanwhile, in another place" in the Leipzig gallery KUB check. Suitable for the choice of the host country of this year's book fair gives you an Overview of the Czech Comic in history; this week, from Thursday to Saturday from 17 to 22 PM, and on Sunday from 14 to 18 hours. The following week the Show on Friday and Saturday from 16 to 20 PM and on Sunday from 14 to 18 clock, see to.

for example, it is a question of how the artist with the Second world war, as you offer the minorities a platform and "Sherlock Holmes" again and again in the drawn world, transfer. "We don't want to tell the visitors what to learn in the exhibition," says Pavel Kobínek. You just give it a chance to understand the history of the country through his Comics.

The exhibition also makes clear, as the authors and signatories on the 20. Century always had to struggle with limitations. To be perceived as your matter Communist times as the "imperialist filth," and even temporarily from public spaces was banned. As it was later, especially as a kid – and that was a large part of how Kobínek explained. "Comics simply had no Chance to grow up."

The situation changed fundamentally only around 2000, as more and more independent, of Fans developed magazines found their buyers. Meanwhile, the Czech Comic book is experiencing a Golden age, a flowering, as it has before. Also, the Image in the General Public change slowly, says Kobínek.
