Comics and Cartoon Art from the Arab World: This display is a chance to explore the art, history and significance of Arab comics from the 19th Century Egyptian satirical press and children’s comics of the mid-20th Century, to the contemporary graphic novel and comics scene. This small display highlights a vibrant visual archive that illustrates and engages with issues concerning everyday life, politics and society across the Arab world and beyond.
As a media-partner with Shubbak, I was also fortunate to have had access to two incredible authors whom I interviewed for the festival blog. If you missed these, you can still read them either on the Shubbak website or on Nahla Ink.
