“About the Exhibit:
From the invention of Superman by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, to current the graphic novel explosion, Jews have always served an essential and indispensable role in the comics and graphic novel industry. This exhibition documents contemporary Jewish artists creating comics and comic book inspired art. The term JOMIX refers to underground independently produced “Comix” of the 60’s and 70’s, edgy and transgressive in nature. By reinvestigating traditional genres like superhero, romance, horror, science fiction and confessionals with particular Jewish subject matter, artists are free to examine complex questions of what it means to be both a Jew and an artist in the current age.
