Our thematic selections : Algeria in comic books

The Institut du Monde Arabe library has a remarkable collection of comic books on Algeria, covering themes ranging from the colonial period to the Algerian War and the decades following independence.

They represent all of the communities that shared this history, one that includes suffering and violence, and many of the books were created as collaborative projects between authors and illustrators from different backgrounds.

Humor and tenderness overlap in this rich and diverse collection, which provides a window into the complexity of the Algerian experience and its past.

This selection is just a taste of the AWI's rich heritage. You can find out more about these subjects by exploring this portal or by visiting the Institute.
