The fifth edition of the European Comics Salon will take place in Bucharest during May 9-22. The event is hosted by Rezidenta Scena9 (32 I.L. Caragiale street) and will include round tables, workshops and debates, reunited under the topic of this year: “Respect”.
“In 2017, the year when Romania is celebrating ten years as UE member state, EUNIC Romania organizes the fifth edition of the European Comics Salon. That’s why, the edition this year is special. We chose not only to present exceptional works signed by European artists, but also to stop by a little bit over what is defining the European Union. And it is defined through the common European values, such as human dignity, equality and respect for human rights. These remarkable artists’ works, which you can see starting May 9 until May 22, dialogize with these values that we want to remind you on the occasion of Europe Day this year,” said Elisabeth Marinkovic, Austrian Cultural Forum director, coordinator of the project this year.
All comics lovers, pros or amateurs can visit the exhibition hosted by Rezidenta Scena 9 on 32 I.L. Caragiale street, a space getting together works from Austria, Czechia, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden and UK.
The opening is scheduled right on Europe Day, on May 9 starting 7 p.m., in an unedited event re-joining the varnishing day and a live art&music performance by Austrian band Bonnage Horreur.
