PROGRAM OF THE 20th INTERNATIONAL COMICS FESTIVAL, SKC BELGRADE 2023

Sep. 28th – Oct. 1st, 2023

 

The 20th-anniversary edition of the festival presents two representative artistic projects. The first, realized in collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Spain in Belgrade, is the Graphic Constellation project featuring nine young Spanish avant-garde female comics authors through two exhibitions and presentation programs (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona CCCB). The second project, titled Beyond Comics - A Look into the Artwork of Serbian Comics Artists, is a grandiose endeavor consisting of two exhibitions. It showcases the works of 27 eminent Serbian artists and is the result of collaboration between Živojin Tamburić, a comics critic and historian from London, and Marko Stojanović, a Serbian comics theoretician, scriptwriter, and editor.
