‘Alois Nebel’ is a rough-cut, black and white Czech graphic novel from Jaroslav Rudis and Jaromir 99. The exhibition, ‘Alois Nebel – Leben nach Fahrplan’ has been designed and conceptualised by the Stuttgart based agency Gold & Wirtschaftswunder, in collaboration with the two authors and the Literaturhaus Stuttgart. It’s a traveling exhibition and has already been shown successfully in several cities across Europe, including in Munich, Salzburg and Berlin. It leads the viewer into the barren ”Altvater” Mountains near the Czech border and into the history of Central Europe. The unique visual quality of the graphic novel has been interpreted in the exhibit in various ways. The structure of the comic with larger and smaller images has been translated into an actual physical framework, which has been installed in multiple layers. The first layer consists of the silhouettes of the landscape in which the story takes place. The various autonomous chapters of the novel are portrayed on the other layers in front of that landscape. This leads to a stunning, three-dimensional visual effect that corresponds with the plot of the story line. The central elements of the exhibit are supported through sketches, objects and other imagery.
