In this Global Comics Lecture Series event, Ganzeer, a well-known artist in Egypt, will talk about how his street art activism during the tumultuous events of Egypt’s Tahrir Square uprising in 2011 inspired an ambitious graphic novel. “The Solar Grid” imagines a dystopian progression of events leading to climate disaster and the exacerbation of global inequalities. Ganzeer’s graphic novel dives into the future implications of colonialism, racism, industrialism, consumerism and environmentalism.
