Golo alias Guy Nadaud was born in Bayonne/France in 1948 and is a French comics artist who is just being discovered in Germany. He has lived in Egypt since the 1970s, at first near Cairo, now in a village named Qurna near Luxor that has disappeared. His declaration of love for Qurna will be released in German at the 15th Erlangen International Comic Salon under the title “Chronik einer verschwundenen Stadt”. Egypt is not just changing because of the Arab revolutions. It seems to have been willing to lose itself before the revolution. Tradition is sacrificed to business in many places. Golo is a chronicler of this process that he describes using a tiny part of the world as an example.
