Kunstmuseum (Loewenichsches Palais, Nürnberger Str. 9) On the occasion of the 15th Erlangen International Comic Salon 2012, the Kunstmuseum Erlangen is working together with the Cartoonmuseum Basel in order to present five well-known Swiss artists: Anna Sommer is one of the most innovative comics artists and illustrators in Switzerland. Her stories are shot through with autobiographical elements. Noyau’s works are inspired by cave paintings, Art Brut and Japanese calligraphy. Martial Leiter became famous as a cartoonist for different newspapers in France, Germany and Switzerland. Anna Hartmann and Magi Wechsler have both already made a name for themselves in the Swiss scene with a number of publications. The Kunstmuseum Erlangen is contrasting their work with the work of six artists from the metropolitan region of Nuremberg: Jeff Chi, Klaus D. Engelke, E. Itta / W. Finsterer, Irma Stolz and Helmut C. Walter.
