Event Description: Deutsches Haus at NYU and the University of Cologne New York Office present a talk by Stefan Börnchen about "New Genre Emerging: Contemporary German Graphic Literature." By now, comics have taken their place alongside other recognized forms of literature, even in German-speaking countries. The renowned German publishing house Suhrkamp includes graphic literature in its program and comic festivals are organized by literary centers. When Art Spiegelman’s graphic novel Maus. A Survivor’s Tale became the first comic to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1992, it became clear that comics can even narrate the Shoah. In other words: they can do anything. The German Renaissance graphic artist, painter, and theorist Albrecht Dürer was right in saying that “wonderful things” can be made from straight, curved, and wiggly lines: one can reflect critically on this (ô_ó), marvel at it (*_*) or take pleasure in it \(^_^)/. This talk will guide the audience through the fascinating world of images and stories found in German-language comics and graphic novels of recent years.
