Burnout has become an increasingly normal part of everyday life for many of us since the term was getting widespread use in the late 1900s. From hospital staff to comic creators to basically any job in the gig economy. Anyone who doesn’t have a steady income, or who is expected to do more work in less time than is reasonable, can feel it. So who or what is to blame? Could we create a situation, a systemic change, to avoid the conditions that cause burnout?
This digital exhibition means to celebrate the release of, and is showcasing samples from, CBA vol 52: BURNOUT by CBK Comics.
CBK works for a more varied and exciting comics culture in Sweden and on the international scene. We publish the international comics anthology CBA, arrange exhibitions, the AltCom comics festival and other cultural events.
We want to push the boundaries of what can be done in comics, expand what the medium is and can be, both in relation to itself and to other art forms.
We run the exhibition space/comic shop Hybriden in Malmö together with Tusen Serier, and the Fosfor zine distro.
