Description

Edited by Reinhold Leinfelder, Alexandra Hamann, Jens Kirstein and Marc Schleunitz.
Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory. Cluster of Excellence at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin |
Freie Universität Berlin.

There are no simple solutions in the Anthropocene epoch. Every single person lives in a highly complex system and is connected to it by his or her actions. By focusing on the example of alimentation, this interconnectedness can be exposed and presented in a form that everyone can understand. Comics as a communication medium not only have the potential to make complex issues accessible in an appealing form; the comic-making process itself can inspire scientific work, and reveal new connections.

This proceedings volume includes contributions on alimentation and comic theory by Jaqueline Berndt, Anne-Kathrin Kuhlemann, Toni Meier, Veronika Mischitz, Stephan Packard, Lukas Plank, Nick Sousanis, Katerina Teaiwa and Arnold van Huis. It is the result of the two-day symposium Science meets Comics, held in October 2015 in the Cluster of Excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, which discussed and developed these new means of communication in relation to alimentation.
