Sztriptíz Indie Comics Fair, 8 - 9 April
Sztriptíz Indie Comics Fair (SZT) is a weekend long Budapest based art festival of indie comic books organised by The ArtYard in collaboration with BP! Comics. The fair features comic presentations, projections, artist talks, workshops and the launch of an anthology of the 10 best indie comic stories from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

SZT pays homage to the playful yet masterly art of indie comic book designs. Indie comics present an alternative to the traditional comic narratives, putting forward a wide range of subjects, styles and genres. Often self-funded and more art oriented, indie comics increasingly shatter the boundary between comic and fine art, introducing thought provoking story lines, diverse characters to which people can relate to and interact with.

A special edition anthology, printed in Risograph, will be introduced at the event featuring the graphic novels of 10 artists. Additionally, the artists will present their portfolios personally and engage with the public through sales, comic signing, workshops and artist talks – converting the exhibition space into a highly interactive space for art.
