About the event

Join us for an evening of cultural exchange as Berlin Meets Taiwan celebrates comics from Taiwan! This event is perfect for cultural creatives and anyone interested in learning more about Taiwan‘s comic art.

Taiwan, a small island nation located in the Western Pacific and at the heart of East Asia, has long been a melting pot of diverse Asian cultures and a hub for immigration throughout history. These rich heritages have witnessed a multitude of both markable and singular historical events, giving rise to peculiar and distinctive cultural phenomena. It is a wellspring of inspiration for many Taiwanese comic artists.

At Berlin Meets Taiwan Comics on March 19, Taiwanese artists Zhou Jianxin and Aliyo showcase works inspired by Taiwan’s historical events and Taoist religious culture. Zhou Jianxin's "Son of Formosa" is the first illustrated biographic depicting Taiwanese political victims. Aliyo's "The Demon Cat" blends elements of Taiwanese Taoism and common folk beliefs, narrating passionate battles under the structure of the classic Manga for Boys.

Signing, Artist Talk, Cosplay Customs Display, and Taiwanese Local Dishes Tasting, all in one evening! Don’t miss it!

**********

臺灣,這個座落於西太平洋、位於東亞中心點的小國

有史以來即是亞洲文化、移民活動的大熔爐

這裡發生過許多   紛紛擾擾  獨特的歷史事件

這裡發展出遍地   光怪陸離  奇特的文化現象

在在都是漫畫家們靈感的泉源

這座島,曾是十六世紀亞洲海盜割據的天堂

這座島,曾是十七世紀大航海時代,荷蘭與西班牙各建堡壘的據點

十八世紀的清帝國、十九世紀的大日本帝國都曾在這裡統治

這是座橫跨溫帶與熱帶

有拔地四千公尺的高山,也有低窪海口的紅樹林

有椰樹海灘,也有層峰雪景

讓南島部落文化、閩南文化、客家文化、大和文化、西葡文化、北方漢民文化相遇碰撞的島嶼

2024萊比錫書展上,來自臺灣的漫畫家周見信與艾莉柚

各自帶來以臺灣歷史事件和臺灣宮廟文化為創作靈光的作品

周見信的《來自清水的孩子》是第一部臺灣政治受難者的傳記漫畫

艾莉柚的《貓妖傳》則熱血戰鬥的少年漫畫架構下,體現臺灣道教與常民信仰元素

作爲前導活動,2024年3月19日

漫畫家周見信與艾莉柚將在柏林臺灣文化廳

舉辦別開生面的分享、訪談、簽繪見面會

歡迎漫迷們前來探索,臺灣漫畫讓人著迷的奇思妙想
