The Silence of the Diagrams – with Gustavo Duarte and Marek Rubec

Sunday, 1 October, 2023 - 12:15
Gustavo Duarte is a brilliant Brazilian artist. Marek Rubec is a champion Czech cartoonist. But they have one thing in common: they specialise in silent comics – comics that use image, expression, body language – and no words.

Fortunately, Marek and Gustavo aren’t silent in real life. In fact they’re extremely articulate.

So we’re going to ask them about the art of silence: what are the special skills that they bring to the silent comic and who are the greatest exponents of all time?
