“Komikaze” is a publisher and a network for spreading comic activities on the world wide web, electronic and brief press distribution of mostly young authors’ comics. The aim is to link “Komikaze” comic activists from Balkan region and the world in order to exchange information and concrete comic products. In the context of related actions for the organization (armless) resistance against the progressive globalization and the increasing taste of institutionalized artistic production.
The Komikaze program represents free and altruistic activities of artists from different geo-strategic areas, which connects independent and uncompromising attitude, called the alternative, in relation to the existing dominating artistic practice. Partners and spatial priorities are related to non-profit autonomous zones of culture.
In 2015 Komikaze launched the relevant project Femicomix which includes a growing collection of female comic artists and is an attempt to underline the strength and potential of female author expression in the field of contemporary comics with a focus on presenting a smaller selection of authors. Selection is made from the komikaze edited issues (print and web). In 2020 Komikaze received the award for the best alternative edition at the largest European comics festival at Angouleme, France.
The nomadic body of Komikaze visiting Galerie Utopia attends to open the public space for dialog, art, and creativity as a space for sharing ideas, knowledge, and skills.
