From the 7. to the 21. october 2017 the Gallery Neurotitan, Berlin show our Graphic Comments for the German newspaper DER TAGESSPIEGEL.
The exhibition in the heart of Berlin shows on 350 m² a selection of the Graphic Comments, which were published since 2015 in the German newspaper DER TAGESSPIEGEL. The idea for this visual column emerged in the spring of 2015, when the refugee topic reached the media & the graphic artists Lea Brousse & Raban Ruddigkeit published a first graphic comment on social networks.
This was the starting point for a collaboration in which the graphic did not only have to illustrate just one text as usual. Rather, a topic, which is illuminated by different sides & different authors, now also free & independent to comment in graphic form. Since then, more than 100 Graphic Comments have been created, from which a selection will now be shown in the gallery NEUROTITAN.
When the texts are discarded, they face an assessment that extends beyond the day. The series was awarded in 2016 by the jury of the VISUAL LEAD AWARD as illustration of the year for newspapers & regularly quoted in blogs and books.
We would like to thank Lea & Thalia, Ariane, Ursula, Sandra, Merlind, Arno, Anna, Bettina, Max, Sabine, Penelope, Sabine (TAGESSPIEGEL), our friends Lars, Robert, Martin, Boris, Stina, Mike, Olaf, Uli, Marc, Rebecca, Jan & Eric & Sebastian for his nice words & Peter for the beautiful photos!
