Fumetto International Comix Festival

FumettoFumetto Comix Festival is an annual international event focusing on comics and art, taking place in Lucerne, Switzerland. For those attending this year, be sure to check out the panel on comics journalism on Sunday April 13:

From Joe Sacco to Patrick Chappatte or Olivier Kugler, comic reportage has become an increasingly esteemed genre in the last decade for both artists and readers. Comic-reporters have used drawing to relay war experiences, societal injustice or autobiography. There are no formal boundaries for artists in this genre, and yet still it comes into question: when is and how far can Comic-Reportage really be considered journalism? Is it only dependent on how one defines journalism itself? And at what point does Comic-Reportage become literature or art?

Panel speakers will be Olivier Kugler (artist), Daniel Puntas (Editor-in-Chief - Reportagen), Tjeerd Royaards (Editor-in-Chief - Cartoon Movement), Meinrad Schade (Documentary photographer), Aino Sutinen (comic artist)
