Lingua Comica Reloaded is the latest collection of comics published under ASEF’s Lingua Comica programme. The collection of five comics by 12 of the programme’s alumni deals with topics from children’s games to economic crises – topics which affect everyone in an increasingly globalised and interdependent world.
Since 2006, the Lingua Comica programme tapped on the wide appeal of comics and graphic novels as a platform for cultural dialogue. In 2009, ASEF launched a call for new collaborations for ‘Reloaded’. This call was sent out to 60 Asian and European artists who took part in the Lingua Comica residencies (Singapore 2006, London 2007 and Kyoto 2008). 12 artists out of the 60 were finally commissioned to contribute to this publication.
