Endzeit. Workshop with Graphic Novelist Olivia Vieweg

What does it mean to be human anyway? This is one of the questions asked as we step into the strange yet familiar worlds created by award-winning German graphic novelist and cartoonist, Olivia Vieweg. Centre stage is Vieweg's graphic novel, Endzeit, adapted into the cult film of the same name in 2018. Celebrated as one of the first feminist zombie films, and a satire (in part) on European attitudes towards migrants, both it and its source text raise trenchant questions about our humanity and our relationships both with nature and our many 'Others'. In this reading/workshop Vieweg introduces us to her work and offers unique insights into the process of creating a graphic novel. We learn how her ideas and characters come to life, and how they jostle alongside each other in a visual narrative.
