Sunday guided tour

2pm — 3pm

Will Eisner (1917–2005) is not only considered the father of the graphic novel, but also decisively shaped the comic medium on two other occasions in his life: In 1940, he used his series “The Spirit” as a kind of laboratory, in which he explored the possibilities of graphic storytelling. In 1952, he tried out the option of using comics to teach and inform in general societal contexts. The guided tour presents this artist as the most important point of reference in the world of comics, while the Hécatombe exhibition shows how contemporary artists use the comic as an innovative art form.
