Stop by the Goethe Pop Up Seattle to enjoy avant-garde, critical comics from Germany, presented by “Le Monde diplomatique” and the Goethe-Institut.

Le Monde diplomatique is the largest monthly newspaper on international politics and current affairs in the world and is translated into more than 20 languages. The German edition was founded in 1995 by the daily newspaper taz and the Swiss weekly newspaper WoZ. The back cover of the German edition showcases avant-garde, critical comics. These comics offer a bold, often absurd, sometimes melancholic take on politics, everyday life and culture.

At the Goethe Pop Up Seattle, the selection of comics on display enables encounters between ATAK or Anke Feuchtenberger, stars of the German alterative comic scene, book illustrators such as Nina Bude, and young talents, such as Anna Haifisch, Moki Thoka Maer, and Robert Deutsch. Their comics are marked by an excessive use of quotations, free use of a variety of graphic possibilities and stylistic eclecticism, enabling them to move between high art and pop culture.
