Rutu Modan Masterclass
Tel Aviv’s Rutu Modan has recently written herself into comic book history with three great graphic novels: "Exit Wounds" (Drawn and Quarterly, 2007); "The Property" (2013); and most recently "Tunnels" (English version to come in October 2021) about a tricky archaeological site, an illegal tunnel under the wall to the West Bank. Her political stories, carried by emphatically idiosyncratic protagonists, have made her Israel’s most internationally recognized comic book artists.

In her masterclass as part of the "Living Archive" project, Rutu Modan gives an insight into her work as a comic book storyteller who deals with complex documentary material; on the one hand, she presents the fictionalized appropriation of precisely depicted times, contexts and places, and on the other she uses her very own method of dealing with photographic presentation, which she stages herself with a large cast of real "actors" and then transfers into her clear and dynamic panels. The lecture will be followed by a discussion moderated by Kai Pfeiffer and Monika Powalisz, and Rutu Modan will also take questions from the viewers.
