Crtl.Alt.Shift unmasks corruption

When: 6-28 NOVEMBER
Where: Lazarides Gallery
Clash: Natural History Museum ice rink

Details as follows:

This brand new exhibition and anthology is something very different, fresh and new from the youth of today. We at Clash Diaries think that everyone should go down and see it.

Experimental youth initiative Ctrl.Alt.Shift presents Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption – The Exhibition, at Soho’s Lazarides Gallery from 6 – 28 November. Supporting the launch of a new comic book anthology of the same name, the exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of politicized comic book and graphic novel work in a bid to politicise a new generation of activists through the medium of popular comic culture

The exhibition will feature an eclectic and powerful range of political stories created by some of the world’s best comic and graphic artists such as Dave McKean, Pat Mills, Peter Kuperand Dan Goldman.

In addition to a range of international and powerfully political comic strips on show, the exhibition presents an array of vintage comics. Superman visiting famine-ridden Ethiopia in 1986, Ronald Regan’s face superimposed on Captain America’s as part of the ‘Regan’s Raiders’ patriotic super heroes series and ‘I Am Curious, Black!’ which is Lois Lane’s exploration of race as she takes on the body of a black woman for 24 hours are examples of just a few historical gems to be discoverd.

The Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption anthology will be available to buy for £4.99 at and all good comic retailers from November.
