Venue: Russell Square: College Buildings Room: G3 (Saturday), BGLT Foyer (Sunday)

Type of Event: Exhibition

The history of Indonesian comics is a blank spot in the world’s comic history. Once an industry that covered a continent-size archipelago with a strong tradition of graphic novels since 1950s, it’s now a cultish subculture kept alive by their independent predecessor of 2000s. The exhibition will showcase Indonesian popular genre comics from fantasy strips in the colonial days to independent comics today.

This exhibition runs for two days, 16-17 March 2019, until 5 PM each day.

This event is free and open to the public.
