Drawing comics and comics
Comics have been an Art for some time, but we are looking for what the visual story can mean for other arts. 'Stripped' also means 'stripped of casings'. We strip open various media to discover new insights.
Painters who want to work narratively, photographers who tackle the photo novel, writers who convert their own story into a visual story (without being able or willing to draw for that reason!), graphic artists who elevate repetition and grid to art, musicians who are inspired by sequence or onomatopoeia…
The possibilities are endless, but also unpredictable. To this end, style and form characteristics of the visual story are mentioned, discussed and applied daily, together with the participants, in order to discover how these open new doors in other art forms.
