Workshop with Felix Pestemer
My Story – Comics Drawing for Beginners

Comics speak a dif­fer­ent lan­guage than texts or images on their own, and are an excel­lent medium for con­vey­ing per­sonal expe­ri­ences, imag­ined sto­ries or polit­i­cal mes­sages. In this work­shop, artist and illus­tra­tor Felix Pestemer will show you how to start mak­ing your own comics.
Ages 13 and up, par­tic­i­pa­tion lim­ited;
reg­is­ter by call­ing 0049 30 266 424242.

Comics Concert by and with Itay Dvori.
With his diverse range of com­po­si­tions and impro­vi­sa­tions, pianist Itay Dvori helps trans­form comics of all kinds into colour­ful sound paint­ings that play out the action and increase the ten­sion in the sto­ries. The music is pre­cisely syn­chro­nised to the pro­jected comic pan­els and holds view­ers mes­merised under its spell. On the clos­ing night of comiX­con­nec­tion, Itay Dvori will play a selec­tion of pieces from his reper­toire, scores from Edmond Baudouin’s “Le Voyage” and Shaun Tan’s “The Arrival”. In addi­tion, he will present new works com­posed espe­cially for this evening’s cel­e­bra­tion of comics from south-east­ern Europe. More infor­ma­tion at www.itaydvori.com
