Internacionalni festival autorskog stripa GRRR! 5

Aleksandar Zorgaf, 20. april 2006.
Pionirov glasnik

Po peti put, na nekoliko lokacija u gradu, Pančevo će biti domaćin okupljanja strip autora, izdavača i teoretičara. Pored glavnog programa ( koji uključuje izložbe, razgovore, projekcije, koncerte), vezan za galerijske prostore Centra za kulture Pančevo ( među kojima je i Galerija savremene umetnosti), festival ima i prateći program, koji će se odvijati u nekoliko gradskih prostora - od kluba Arhiv i Studija 21 do poslastičarnice Popović.

Među ovogodišnjim izložbama je i pregled savremene strip scene u Srbiji. Među gostima festivala je Chuck Sperry, predstavnik dizajnerskog tima Firehouse iz San Franciska, koji se ubraja među nejznačajnije kreatore rock plakata na svetskoj sceni - Chuck Sperry je pod značajnim uticajem strip ikonografije, o čemu govori i činjenica da je bio urednik poznatog njujorškog strip časopisa WW3 Illustrated. Iz Lisabona dolazi Rita Braga, muzičarka i strip crtačica, koja će održati koncert i izložiti ne samo svoje radove, već i radove svog dede (Ruy Braga) i pradede (Antonio Braga), čiji će radovi po prvi put biti izneti iz privatne arhive! Izložbu posvećenu naslovnim stranama strip izdanja u Italiji šezdesetih godina priređuje Andrea Plazzi, strip kritičar, urednik i teoretičar. U pitanju je jedan od najuzbudljivijih perioda italijanskog i evropskog stripa, koji je imao uticaja i na strip izdanja i časopise nastale u našoj sredini. Takođe zanimljiva izložba je posvećena odjecima na produkciju Walta Disneya u istočnoevropskim zemljama do vremena hladnog rata. Priređivač ekskluzivno za ovu priliku nastale izložbe je Dider Ghez, istoričat i teoretičar popularne kulture iz Pariza, takođe poznat kao sakupljač "Disneyana" produkcije, koji trenutno radi u predstavništvu kompanije Walt Disney u Madridu. Nastavljajući bavljenje istorijatom lokalne scene u Srbiji, s druge strane, strip istoričar Zdravko Zupan će u Galeriji Dvorište prirediti izložbu pod nazivom "Strip u Srbiji 1972 - 1975.", uz selekciju originalnih crteža i izdanja iz tog vremena.

Specijalitet festivala je i izložba originalnih tabli stripa Dikan, kojeg od 1969. godine crta Lazar Sredanović. Dikan je autentični junak ovih prostora, uz kojeg su rasle čitave generacije čitalaca Politikinog zabavnika.

U okviru razgovora o savremenom strip izdavaštvu u Evropi, učestvuju Omar Martini, vlasnik izdavačke kuće Black Velvet iz Bolonje, kao i Adam Halmos, predstavnik novopokrenute budimpeštanske edicije Art Comix, zajedno sa još nekoliko sagovornika iz nekoliko zemalja. Među predavanjima koje će GRRR! ove godine organizovati je "Comix Files - Susret devete i ostalih osam umetnosti", koje priređuje Giannis Koukoulas, urednik časopisa Galera iz Atine. Drugo predavanje je posvećeno istorijatu ( još uvek nedovoljno poznate) strip scene u Mađarskoj, a u ulozi predavača pojavljuje se Triceps, poznati umetnik iz Budimpešte, inače poreklom iz Subotice. Festival će biti obogaćen prisustvom strip autorke iz Britanije ( Lee Kennedy), i nekolicinom crtača među kojima su Piero Macola, italijanski autor nastanjen u Parizu, grčki scenarista Dimitris Savvaidis, kao i predstavnici Madjarske (Grof Balazs), Austrije (Edda Strobl i Helmut Kaplan) i Slovenije ( Jakob Klemenčič i David Krančan). Zasebna izložba će biti posvećena ljubljanskom časopisu Stripburger i njihovom novom projektu "Honey Talks!", koji spaja tradiciju ukrašavanja pčelinjaka u Sloveniji devetnaestog veka sa savremenom produkcijom nekih od najzanimljivijih strip autora u svetu.

Ovogodišnje izdanje GRRR! festivala će biti obogaćeno i nekolicinom jedinstvenih izložbi kao što su "Kućna produkcija časopisa u Srbiji", u okviru koje će biti prikazani fanzini i unikatna kućna izdanja, od godine 1926. do danas, kao i izložba posvećena delima inspirisanim junacima Walta Disneya u Srbiji (uglavnom anonimnih autora), uključujući i raritetne "kuvarice" iz tridesetih godina, na kojima se pojavljuju Miki i Mini Maus. Kao i prethodnih godina, festival će okupiti brojne poslenike autorskog stripa u Srbiji, a nova nada domaćeg stripa, Maja Veselinović, će svoje radove izložiti u prostoru legendarne poslastičarnice Popović.

U okviru pratećeg programa festivala biće priređen koncert njujorške muzičarke Dorit Chrysler, koja će izvesti koncert na tereminu u klubu Arhiv. Arhiv će svoj prostor posvetiti i izložbi crteža strip autora iz nekoliko zemalja, inspirisanih radom ove umetnice. U prateći program spada i ekskuzija za Deliblatsku peščaru, gde će strip crtač Mr Spiral prirediti oproštajnu izložbu posvećenu završetku njegovog petogodišnjeg projekta crtanja i izlaganja stripa u prodavnici cipela u kojoj je bio zaposlen.Takođe, lokalna inicijativa će biti zastupljna predstavljanjem novog izdanja strip plakata Silent Wall, i kompilacije pančevačkih bandova nazvana Crna tačka.

Prateći program sadrži i dešavanje u Studiju 21, gde će izdavačka kuća Radioaktivno prirediti koncert pančevačkih bendova (koji su uvek tesno sarađivali sa lokalnim strip crtačima)...

FIFTH EDITION OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMICS FESTIVAL GRRR! PANCEVO APRIL 29th – MAY 9th

For the fifth time, in several locations in the town of Pancevo, a gathering of comics creators, publishers and theoreticians will be held. Along with the Main Program (which includes exhibitions, panel disscussions, projections,concerts), is connected to the venues of the Pancevo Cultural Center (including Gallery of Contemporary Art), there's also an Additional Program spread in other locations in town, such as clubs ( Arhiv and Studio 21), Popovic Pastry Shop, etc.

Among the guests of the festival is Chuck Sperry, coming all the way from San Francsco, representing Firehouse – certainly one of the leading rock posters design teams in the world today. Chuck Sperry is heavily influenced by comic art iconography,and was one of the editors of New York's legendary World War 3 Illustrated magazine.

From Lisbon, we have Rita Braga, a musician and cartoonist, who will perform live in concert and display not only her own comics, but also (for the first time ever taken from the private archives) cartoon works of her grandfather (Ruy Braga) and great-grandfather (Antonio Braga)!

Andrea Plazzi, comic critic and editor from Bologna, is going to curate an exhibition of Cover Designs of Italian Comics Magazines from the 60s (which influenced many other comics publishing ventures, including Yugoslav ones). It definitely was one of the most exciting periods of Italian and European comics.

Also on display will be an exhibition of works inspired by Walt Disney creations, produced (mostly by local artists) in Central and Eastern Europe in the years before the Cold War.This unique material will be presented, probably for the first time, in an overview by Didier Ghez, a popular culture reasercher and collector of vintage Disneyana from Paris. Ghez is currently employed by Walt Disney Company in Madrid.

GRRR! also covers the inland scene – in addition to the series of exhibitions dedicated to the history of comics in Serbia, Zdravko Zupan will curate an exhibition in The Backyard Gallery, titled "Comics in Serbia 1972-1975", presenting original editions and artworks from the era.

Exclusivelly presented in this festival, will be original pages of "Dikan" comics, created since 1969 by Lazar Sredanovic. Dikan is a true local hero – generations of readers of Politikin Zabavnik ( kids magazine originated in 1939, and still in circulation) grew up reading this comic about Ancient Slavic people, who suspiciously resemble present day Balkanoids.
The panel discussion about comics publishing in different parts of Europe will be joined by Omar Martini, the owner of Black Velvet publishing house from Bologna, and Adam Halmos, representative of Art Comix from Budapest.

Among the slide presentations this year there is "Comix Files – Where the Ninth Art and the Other Eight Arts Meet" by Giannis Koukoulas, editor of Athens' Galera magazine. The second talk will be concentarted around the history of the (not yet well enough known) Hungarian comics scene. It's going to be presented by Triceps, famous performance artist from Budapest, originally from Subotica in Northern Serbia.

Also present at the festival is British autobiographical comics master Lee Kennedy, and a few other international cartoonists including Piero Macola, an Italian author recently living (and publishing) in Paris, Greek comics scriptwriter Dimitris Savvaidis, along with authors from Hungary ( Balazs Grof), Austria (Edda Strobl and Helmut Kaplan), and Slovenia ( Jakob Klemencic and David Krancan).

A separate show will be dedicated to a magazine from Ljubljana, Stripburger, and their project "Honey Talks!", which links the tradition of 19th Century's Slovenian painted beehives with contemporary productions by some of the most interesting authors on the international independent scene.

This year’s GRRR! will be adorned by few unique exhibitions including "Home Made Magazines in Serbia", which will show some of the fanzines and single-copy home editions, from1926 to present. Plus, an exhibition dedicated to products found in Serbia, inspired by Walt Disney stuff (mostly by anonymous creators), including vintage rarities such as embroideries made in 1930s, depicting Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

As in previous years, the festival will bring together many cartoonists from Serbia, too, including a "big promise" of the Serbian comics scene, Maja Veselinovic, who will exhibit her work in the legendary Pastry Shop Popovic. As part of the GRRR! Additional program, New York theremin player Dorit Chrysler will perform live at a club called Arhiv. At the same place, an exhibition of drawings inspired by Dorit and her music will present a selection of cartoonists from several countries.

The festival will conclude with an excursion to Deliblatska Pescara, where many people from the area traditionally gather for the picnic on Labour’s Day and where an exhibition by Mr Spiral will mark an end of his 5 year-long project of exhibiting comics at the shoe shop where he used to work. Also, Pancevo’s scene will represent itself through the comics-poster Silent Wall, and a compilation of local bands titled Black Spot.

Additional Program includes an event at the club named Studio 21, where underground music label Radioaktivno will present the music of the local bands (usually very closely collaborating with underground cartoonists as well).
