We’re now on the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU exhibition schedule…..
…and we love how they present the show. Cannot wait for this run!
“Jews have had an extensive contribution to comics. But the focus has been mostly on men and superheroes. How did women contribute to the history of comics, and in particular, to autobiographical comics, a genre they helped birth? What is particularly Jewish and female about how they did it? And, why unveil parts of yourself and your life in comics? These are the questions posed to 18 artists, whose writings and drawings depict their own pain, laughter, shame, triumphs and self-doubts in a way that taps a collective nerve.”
