Curatorial Theme

MANGA, TIES AND BONDS

In this exhibition we will present outstanding pieces of work from manga that rely deeply on human bonds and emotions.
Comics can be entertaining but also motivating, emotive, and even, in some cases, life-changing.
Talk sessions and interviews with manga authors and experts will be held online and onsite at Manga Barcelona.
