BITTERKOMIX & ALEKSANDAR ZOGRAF:
DRAWING THE FRONT LINES


Bitterkomix comprises Conrad Botes and Joe Dog, South African revolutionaries whose comics literally were on the front line in the struggle for democracy during the eighties. Hailed as heroes with the release of Nelson Mandela, Bitterkomix have continued to train an unblinking eye on their national psyche. Aleksandar Zograf, a Serbian comics writer and artist, explores the former Yugoslavia’s complex psyche in a darkly amusing manner. His 1999 book Bulletins from Serbia contains e-mails and cartoon strips written during the NATO bombings. In 2002, Zograf produced Jamming with Aleksandar Zograf, in which he collaborated with Jim Woodring and Robert Crumb, among others. Bittercomix and Zograf will be in conversation with Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell.
