In my comic Bed, Bad and Dood I try to take the viewer into the story of a refugee. I believe that a vital society needs new cultures.
To understand the refugee, we must become an actor in the refugee’s narrative. For this project I have spoken with many refugees. I have combined their stories and kneaded them into a realistic knit.
In this story you follow Wijnbrand Axel de Haan. He has to flee the Netherlands due to extreme natural disasters. He gradually loses everything and becomes displaced. Wijnbrand arrives in a non-existent country where they treat him as a number. He gets deeper and deeper into the restraining corridors of bureaucracy.
Bed, Bad en Dood was for sale at the famous zine store Athenaeum in Amsterdam.
