In 2018 the Ghent University library acquired a large collection of illustrated children’s periodicals from Belgian comics collector Alain Van Passen.
In collaboration with Ghent University’s COMICS research group, KIOSK offers a first-ever glimpse of this extensive collection. The exhibition spans three months and unfolds across seven two-week chapters, each chapter curated by a researcher from the COMICS research group or a specialist on the history of comics.
Accompanying each chapter is a publication designed by Enid Stassyns, a former master student from KASK Graphic Design department.
Each issue can be bought for 5 €.
