Exquisite Comics virtuell
Two days, 28 participants, one story
Time to engage in the grand tradition of “Exquisite Corpse” – as a virtual comic version of the beloved surrealist drawing game!
How it works: Each participant draws two panels that continue the same story. The participants are allowed to see only the last panels drawn by the previous person. Participants are then challenged to continue the story, drawing the situation forward. The topic? RESISTANCE! Your two panels can go anywhere in time or space, new characters may be introduced.. whatever you think fits, as long as you follow a few simple rules 😉
Each participant gets a timeslot of one (1) hour between 10:00 to 23:00 Sat/Sun during #CIB20 #ComicSTREAMvasion weekend 28+29th November. During this one hour, each participant draws their two-panel-contribution, scans or photographs it and sends it forward to the coordinator. The coordinator sends those two panels to the next person, who continues the story .. and so on until the last slot aka the bitter(sweet)?? end!! The full story will be compiled into a zine, revealed in its full glory during the week after in an online publishing party 😉
Exquisite Corpse is a surrealist drawing game invented in 1925 by the surrealists Yves Tanguy, Jacques Prévert, André Breton and Marcel Duchamp and well loved by contemporary artists like Frida Kahlo.
