This work takes on a hallucinatory journey through the collective unconscious of the Balkans. The result of a unique collaboration between two of Sweden’s most internationally renowned cartoonists, creator Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson, this singular graphic novel mixes real-life events such as the bombing of Serbia with outrageous and fantastic elements of the dream world (zombies! mummies!). Each of the co-creators contributed to every single drawing to the extent that they no longer can tell themselves exactly who did what. The artists take readers on a journey through the collective unconscious of the Balkans, where the borders between dream and reality are erased and redrawn until they form a tale which could be about our times and war-torn Europe but just as well might be a deep dive into the psyches of its authors or a discussion about the essence of drawing.
