Deutsches Haus at NYU and the University of Cologne New York Office present “Identity, Belonging, and the Role of the Artist in the Contemporary Graphic Novel,” a conversation between the illustrators and artists Nora Krug and Büke Schwarz, moderated by Professor Stefan Börnchen (University of Cologne). Both Nora Krug’s graphic memoir “Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home” and Büke Schwarz’s debut graphic novel “Jein” draw inspiration from their personal histories to tackle the nuanced questions of belonging, identity, and the role of the artist in making sense of the past and the present. Please join us in exploring these intricate and intriguing questions and examining how the format of the graphic novel lends itself to telling these important stories.
