On November 5, 2022, I had the opportunity to give a presentation on the representation of queerness in art at the Establishing Shot of the network Comic in Bayern.
I talked about why good queer representation is important, what “good” representation actually means, and how people can incorporate more queerness into their own work. A short summary can be found in the Instagram post by Comic in Bayern.
During the two-day event, there were plenty of insightful and important presentations, for example one on applying for grants by Lisa Frühbeis, and one on working methods in science comics by Jonas Grund.
It was incredibly fun for me to introduce so many interested people to a topic that I have been dealing with for many years. The positive feedback I received after the event was incredibly motivating for me. A big thank you to Comic in Bayern for this opportunity!
More events for this and next year are already being planned. I can warmly recommend it to comic makers in Bavaria (I might even present something at another one of their events, hehe).
