Streich auf Streich
150 years of German-language comics since Max and Moritz
22 September 2014 to 11 January 2015
In 1864, Wilhelm Busch completed his famous Max and Moritz comic strip. With this work, translated into over 200 languages, a tradition began that led directly to modern comics in North America, as founded in particular by the comic pioneer Rudolph Dirks, originally from northern Germany, with his series The Katzenjammer Kids. The first large-scale assessment of the history of German-language comics will be showing outstanding works taken from 15 centuries, such as Vater und Sohn (Father and Son), Nick Knatterton, Fix and Foxi, Mecki and Strizz.
