Culture & Critique

This is the story of the radical and feminist wave of Swedish comic art and literature.

Over the past 15 years, a new genre of comics has developed in Sweden. Some of the works are neatly drawn autobiographies, others cut-and-paste, satirical collages. But what’s unique is that the genre is dominated by women, feminist and politically radical. This is the story of a cultural movement.

With Daria Bogdanska, Sara Hansson and Sara Granér.
