Panel: “On The Grotesque”
Nov. 1st (Friday) @ 19:15-20:15 @ KargArt

Panelists: Nicholaus Patnaude, Barbara Stok, Yiğit Bener; moderated by tba

Story telling can make use of the distortion and exaggeration of the form to present us everyday stories in a way that makes us feel pity, disgust and discomfort. Magnifying glass of the grotesque as a narrative strategy and style also serves the purpose of exorcising ghosts and demons whether they are of political oppression, of love found and lost or of the daily life of a young woman. Barbara Stok, winner of Stripschapprijs, Yiğit Bener, translator of “The Journey to the End of Night”, and Nicholaus Patnaude will discuss the materiality of the body in their works and ways of story telling that renders what is familiar, uncomfortably unfamiliar.
