Poetry Comics with Mara Ramirez

Anything can happen in a comic! Interdisciplinary artist, educator, and cofounder of Freak Comics Collective Mara Ramirez leads a workshop exploring how intuitive ways to express ourselves exist within the world of comics making. Playing with abstraction and time as a medium, we can unlock new ways of expanding subjectivity, and thereby bridging distances between us. Marinating in everyday moments, as well as creating new worlds, we embark together. In Ramirez’s own comics and animations, they play with abstraction and the action of mark making as a means of distorting and clarifying their own experiences through the filter of emotion and memory.
