For the sixteenth year, Serieteket and friends invite you to Sweden’s biggest and greatest manifestation for comics as an art form.
The Stockholm International Comics Festival 2014 offers a wide range of program, including Swedish and international guests, a comic market, exhibitions, workshops and master classes, film screenings and release parties inside and outside of Kulturhuset Stadsteatern.
This year’s festival will focus on the Canadian comics scene (with guests such as Seth, Kate Beaton, Faith Erin Hicks and Philippe Girard). Other international guests include Olivier Martin and Sylvain Runberg [FRA], Erik Kriek [NL], MaGnUs [URU], Jaromir 99 and Johana Ziková [CHE], Dominique Maricq [BEL], and kuš! [LAT]. There will also be a big delegation from Finland.
One of our main themes this year well be representation – how is gender, ethnicity, culture etc. represented in comics and among the people that create them?
