Online Comic Artists Meetup with Moki
In August we have a mentor who works in different media, with a focus on (comic) painting. At the 2006 Frankfurt Book Fair, Moki received the Sondermann Award for "Best Newcomer of the Year" for "Asleep in a Foreign Place". This was followed by the books "How to disappear" (2010), "Wandering Ghost" (2011), "Shelter" (2017) and "Swampland" (2019). In addition to numerous national and international exhibitions, she is a permanent member of the Spring Collective, which publishes an annual anthology of visually told stories.

24-Stunden-Comic am Wannsee
For the third time, around 40 artists will take up the challenge of developing an individual, 24-page comic within 24 hours. Without preparation - the topic will be announced shortly beforehand - and without post-production. An event organized by Augusto Paim at the Literary Colloquium Berlin.

Augusto Paim is a journalist graduated from UFSM and has a master’s degree in Letters/Creative Writing from PUCRS. In 2019, he completed his PhD with a DAAD/CAPES scholarship at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany, with a thesis on comic reporting, published in book form by Ch. A. Bachmann. In partnership with the Goethe Institute, he was curator of the Osmosis project for an exchange of comic artists and organizer of the I and II International Meeting of Journalism in Comics. He also works as a translator and reporter, carrying out reports and translations in both prose and comics. He lived in Germany for eight years, the last of those years working at the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin, a literature center founded in 1963 on the shores of Lake Wannsee. There, he was co-founder and editor of the alternative news portal LCB diplomatique (www.lcb-diplomatique.net), in which protagonists of literary life from around the world took a look at pressing societal issues through a short text and a photo.
