Topical Tales is a day of lectures and workshops discussing the blurring boundaries between facts and fiction within the journalistic and artistic publication. Organized by Karolina Cialkaite and Alternative Art School at Kingston University London. Noortje van Eekelen and Belle Phromchanya (founders of ACED) will give a lecture and workshop exercise on speculating the present. Following Hugh Frost, founder of Mould Map - a publication series dedicated to New Comics & Narrative Art - will present their work. We close the event together with Daniel Kang Yoon Nørregaard, designer, creator of Incredible Edition – a self published journal - exploring the textual and visual language of contemporary news.
