Medinas Mediterráneas in Barcelona

6 June 2024. From 18:30 | Conference | Catalan | French | Ateneu Barcelonès · Canuda, 6 (BCN)
slideshow image A poster edition from the eponym comic by Lebanese born author and illustrator Barrak Rima.

The proposal of Medinas Mediterráneas is to give a twist to the traditional idea of travel notebooks by combining the elements outstanding or notable and informative of the curiosity with which a traveling cartoonist sees and reflects the city he is visiting with the personal and sentimental knowledge of a recognized local person that will lead you through the city to four emblematic places for her and that the foreign artist will have the challenge of reproducing through with his hands.

The project, promoted by Casa Mediterráneo, now arrives in Barcelona with the Lebanese artist Barrack Rima, who will get to know the city through a walk with Isona Passola, president of l’Ateneu Barcelonès, and who will participate in a discussion with the cartoonist Marc Torices, awarded from the Barcelona Comic Fair with the Best Work Published in Spain in 2024 for his work on La Alegre Vida del Triste Perro Cornelius.
