About

History


Fumetto has a long tradition. In 2020 it will take place for the 29th time. Over the years the festival has developed into the top location for artistically ambitious comics in Europe. Unlike the usual comic-events Fumetto has devoted itself explicitly to the art. Every year it runs a finely tuned international program of exhibitions with comics at its centre.

Being solely an arts and culture event without commercial background, Fumetto makes high demands on art. The quality of the exhibitions is of museum standard, as is the educational program. The festival shows the most influential and innovative graphic artists of recent years as well as future trends. It is looking towards the future and takes an active part in promoting young talents.

Fumetto is unique in its consistent focus on various forms of art (comic, installation, theatre, painting, performance, installation, graphic arts, streetart, animation) and its avant-garde approach. The infectious creative atmosphere attracts up to 40.000 visitors each year and makes Fumetto an essential venue for art lovers. Fumetto is the platform for influential and innovative comic art. For most artists and experts from around the world it's indispensable.

Next to the main exhibitions Fumetto gives around 40 satellite artists the opportunity to present their exhibitions in Lucerne befor and during the festival.


The satellites take place at local partner spaces like restaurants, stores, public libraries, etc. Satellite exhibitions are an important part of Fumetto and an excellent possibility for artists to present their work to an international audience.  Satellite exhibitions must be designed and financed by the artist themselves. Fumetto arranges the place of the exhibition, initiates the communication with the local partner, and will there for you with support.


 SATELLITE EXHIBITIONS : 18 MARCH to 5 APRIL 2020

NEWS

For the first time ever: Swiss Criminal Code illustrated!

A co-production from Fumetto and Lawbrary.ch

Fumetto is illustrating the Swiss Criminal Code - and we need you to do it!

Together with Lawbrary.ch Fumetto is decorating the Swiss Criminal Code (StGB). And you can apply today! We’re looking for artists, illustrators and painters who will draw pictures in order to illustrate and shape the different articles in the Criminal Code.

Apply now and draw one or multiple articles. Give the Swiss Criminal Code the makeover it so desperately needs! In total there 74 articles, that we need illustrated. Pick on (or two or three) and draw them! In the end we will pick one drawing per article and publish it in our online version of the law on lawbrary.ch. You can apply for multiple articles and hand in a drawing for each.

In the PDF you’ll find all the info you need. (sorry, german version only)
