Jindřich Janíček

Workshop: Documentary Comics 

Jindřich Janíček graduated of UMPRUM (Prague’s Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design), co-founded the small independent publishing house Take Take Take and just recently finished the illustrated Czech Constitution and several documentary comics.

Jindřich Janíček explores authorial approaches in the genre of documentary comics, how creators cope with working with facts, how they pass on information to comic book readers, and most of all he is interested in the gray zone between documentary comics, comics as non-fiction and places in stories that authors had to fill in with fiction or when changed the recorded reality because of the story's passing.

At  the workshop participants will choose their own event, even the unknown — from the sinking of the Titanic to a story from the grandmother.
