Cancelled: Collecting and dreaming

08 April 2020 | 2.00 PM - 4.00 PM

Comics reporters are on the move, observing their surroundings and interviewing people. They can also focus on themselves though, like Lucerne artist Christoph Fischer, who draws his dreams. During Comics Week, we get to know Christoph Fischer in person, spend an afternoon together, sleep at the museum, then draw our dreams afterwards, no matter how crazy they are! This workshop takes place at both Cartoonmuseum and Druckstelle. Information on the programme will be sent out two weeks beforehand (it is also possible to book individual afternoons). A collaboration with Druckstelle Basel.

The Cartoonmuseum Basel is the only museum of its kind devoted exclusively to satirical art – from the caricature to the comic. The Late Gothic building on its historic site also includes an unexpected new building by Herzog & de Meuron. Varying, attractively designed exhibitions on political and social themes show the considerable scope of the humorous drawing and the great diversity of artistic techniques. Equal attention is paid to both classical works, some from the museum’s own stocks, and contemporary works.
