DRAWING THE LINE BETWEEN HIGH AND LOW ART: A CONVERSATION WITH CARTOONIST NICOLAS MAHLER
THURSDAY APR 26, 06:30 PM
The Austrian Cultural Forum is pleased to present an evening with award-winning Austrian cartoonist and animator Nicolas Mahler who will discuss his books Angelman: Fallen Angel and Old Masters (Alte Meister). Angelman: Fallen Angel, the tragicomic story of a hapless super-hero told from his corporate creation to his very human demise, is about to be published in the United States. Created in 2010, it is Mahler's first book to be released in English in six years, and the first to be released by Fantagraphics Books, one of the foremost publishers of comics and graphic novels in the United States. Meanwhile, Nicolas Mahler has just released a graphic version of Thomas Bernhard's acclaimed 1985 satirical novel Old Masters: A Comedy.
