The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.


In Comicleben (comic life), we meet seven very different people, whose lives are profoundly influenced, in different ways, by their passion for comics. The individual (life) stories reveal a multi-layered and fascinating insight behind the scenes of the world of comics in different decades and different countries.The collector’s items, visual materials and texts present a narrative of the high art of comic drawing, the struggle to find the perfect expression in graphic novels, the efforts made by publishers and the passion of fans for the various forms of comic strips, from superhero comics to manga.
