Drawn Together
Aline Kominsky-Crumb & Robert Crumb

The Book accompanying the exhibition

The USA’s Aline Kominsky-Crumb (b. 1948) and Robert Crumb (b. 1943) are an odd couple – in life, as well as in art. He is a celebrated underground artist and she is a pioneer of the autobiographical comic. Since 1972, they have been collaboratively writing and drawing the autobiographical relationship-and-family comic strip “Aline & Bob”, in which the societal upheavals of the 1970s, the differences between man and woman, and a handful of substantial neuroses play leading roles: a side-splitting drama, unique in the world of comics, with a wealth of punch lines. The publication “Aline Kominsky-Crumb & Robert Crumb. Drawn Together” coincides with the exhibition of the same name and contains selected episodes from “Aline & Bob”, including the stories that have never been published in Europe before, supplemented with solo works by Aline Kominsky-Crumb and Robert Crumb, as well as photographs and articles on the life and works of these artists.
