(W) Benjamin Fraser

Benjamin Fraser explores the representation of the city in a range of comics from across the globe. Comics address the city as an idea, a historical fact, a social construction, a material-built environment, a shared space forged from the collective imagination, or as a social arena navigated according to personal desire. The works selected comprise a variety of international, alternative, and independent small-press comics artists, from engravings and early comics to single-panel work, graphic novels, manga, and trading cards. Fraser touches on many themes of modern urban life: activism, alienation, consumerism, flΓnerie, gentrification, the mystery story, science fiction, sexual orientation, and working-class labor.
