Harbour Front Festival

The cultural institutes that have joined forces to create Eunic-Hamburg, meaning the Institut français de Hambourg, the Instituto Cervantes, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura and the Goethe-Institut, are hosting the 7th International Graphic Novel Salon with one graphic novel artist representing each of the four countries.

The graphic novel is a relatively young genre in the wide field of literature and, broadly speaking, constitutes a synthesis of literature and comic books. All those who want to find out more about this exciting genre can do so at the Graphic Novel Salon by encountering four prize-winning European artists while drinking a glass of wine. More information on the artists and their works will be posted here and on the websites of the cultural institutes in the near future.

An event organized by EUNIC-Hamburg and book store Strips & Stories, Hamburg.
