From 1998 to 2007, the Portuguese journalist Pedro Rosa Mendes documented the horrifying wars in western Africa together with the photographer Wolf Böwig from Hanover, Germany. Together with comics artists from all over the world, The Black.Light Project is developing a cross-over version in which reports, text, photos and illustrations merge. Directly before the 15th Erlangen International Comic Salon, David von Bassewitz, Benjamin Flaó, Thierry van Hasselt, Nic Klein, Lorenzo Mattotti, George Pratt, Stefano Ricci and Danijel Žeželj will work on the project following the stories of the contemporary witness Father Garrick from Sierra Leone and the reports of Pedro Rosa Mendes and Wolf Böwig. The results of this work phase will be presented in the workshop space during the 15th Erlangen International Comic Salon.
