Comica Social Club


Shunga into Manga?

A discussion on how the Japanese erotic art of shunga connects with modern manga, the popular graphic art form. Nicole Rousmaniere, British Museum, chairs this discussion with Exhibition Curator Timothy Clark, Nobuko Anan, Birkbeck, University of London, and writer, journalist and expert on the art of the comic Paul Gravett, co-director of Comica Festival. They will look at parallels between the art forms, and whether one inspired the other. Parental guidance advised for under 16s.
