This book is based upon Mejsam’s nightmares. The other co-writers have added their nightmares to create a long journey towards liberation and awakening.
What began as a therapeutic work was transformed into a book that is also a meeting between four artists. An art project and at the same time a meeting between the existentiality of, and the society that creates the conditions for, our dreams and nightmares.
Dream stories are a way to get away from the roles that have been set upon us; undocumented, citizens, workers, artists.
A way to escape and to understand our lives.
Language: Swedish, with translations in English, Bosnian and Farsi
This is a TUSEN SERIER GRÄNSLAND book:
Stories from the borderlands between comics and illustrated litterature. Tales where image and text interact but not in a classic comics format. Still, so much of the work’s meaning is carried by the pictures that it would not be the same without them. In these borderlands we find new expressions, new languages and perhaps a new way to read and understand the relationship between text and image.
