No Bokmässa this year…

September 25, 2008

No bookfair in Göteborg this year for me, though my books will be sold there. Look for them here:

Title / publisher / booth#
Piracy is Liberation 001-004 / C’est Bon Kultur / Seriestaden A01:49
C’est Bon Anthology 2-5, vol. 1-5 / C’est Bon Kultur / Seriestaden A01:49
Trollet / Komika Förlag / Komika Förlag A01:28
Lantis: Den Siste Lantisen, Monster / Seriefrämjandet / Seriestaden A01:49

This is the first time this century that I haven’t been to the bookfair. Feels a bit weird, but also quite nice. Instead, I’ll try to make the Anarchist Bookfair in London, October 18.

Just got confirmation that the Violence exhibition will stay up until October 17! So if you haven’t seen it yet, you still have the chance.

Scroll down a bit for info about the exhibition.

It’s at Panora, St Gertrudsg 4. Open at any time when they’re showing movies…

Trollet finally here!

September 21, 2008

After waiting for two (three?) years, Komika will finally release Trollet as a Komika Minialbum.

(A troll isn’t something you’re born as, it is something that you become)

Order from Komika Förlag, or buy at the Book Fair in Göteborg this week (Thursday to Sunday).

Vibracathedral Orchestra – Weaving the Magic

The Violence exhibition is up and running. So is the European Social Forum. And at the same time as Violence opened, fittingly enough, something else took place. The local cops stages a wild protest against their own union. I wonder if they had a permit for their demonstration. I wonder who will beat them up if their thing goes out of hand?

Anyway. Here’s a photo of a part of the exhibition:

The prints are 110x86cm. They can be bought for 500 SEK/copy. Contact me ( mattias@elftorp.com ) to order…

Well. That’s it. I’m going to bed.

Violence exhibition!

September 7, 2008

This is an exhibition of the story called Violence (which will be published in Piracy is Liberation 006: Violence). It is also a comment on the political climate in Malmö.

Police are sent in by social democrats against constitutionally protected actions taken by the union. They force children up against the wall, accusing them of crimes they couldn’t possibly have committed, simply because they look like immigrants.

Time and again, the police prove that they aren’t here to protect us but to control, to hold anyone back who dares to stray outside of the norms of what it’s supposed to mean to be Swedish.

The exhibition is dedicated to Malmö 26, the 26 who were indicted for being on the picket line against a sushi restaurant at Lilla Torg in Malmö.
