The first modern comics were published in the USA a hundred years ago. Nowadays, after ups and downs in their reception, comics are getting more and more popular. Having a look at this medium at any point in its history reveals that its audience and its characters are often children.
The exhibition is organized in a way that the visitor and the stories mature and grow up together. Starting from our favourite fairy tales, we can see our dreams and traumas as children, the first love, our problems as teenager, our dilemmas as young adults, and catharsis of becoming a parent that stops us from being children any longer.
Deák17 Gallery’s exhibition follows the above timeline and displays a selection of comics made by contemporary Hungarian graphic artists on and about children.
