Against borders

Bodies and space in contemporary comics

with Alex Bodea, Max Baitinger, Émilie Gleason

chair Ilaria Tontardini

The characters invented by Alex Bodea, Max Baitinger and Émilie Gleason share a certain discomfort in their relationship with space. After all, space is both a source of possibility and frustration in comics: it allows movement, but at the same time it creates limitations to it. They discuss the meaning of borders in comics with visual arts scholar Ilaria Tontardini.
