Maria Manonelles and Montse Batalla with Laura Fernández

Boges

“Mad women” will open day 2 of the festival. Mental illness has been the subject of numerous works of art. In novels and films it is common to find the figure of the mad person, be it the romantic artist with a severed ear, the wise fool, psychotic killer or endearing eccentric (or hysterical woman who poisons her children, on too many occasions). The incidence of mental disorders with the appropriate accuracy and seriousness is rather less common. Primera Persona welcomes two comic book artists who take mental illness (in the first person) as the theme of two new works: Maria Manonelles, with her comic Dormo molt (2018), and Montse Batalla, with Manicomio (2019). They talk with journalist Laura Fernández.

Participants: Maria Manonelles, Montse Batalla, Laura Fernández
