Bricks is a comic I wrote and drew for the special edition kuš! anthology, “Redrawing Stories From the Past”.
It deals with Warsaw architecture during the 2nd World War: the parallel existence of utopian modernist ideas and the actual erasing of the physical space of the city, as well as the annihilation of its inhbitants. The comic follows a number of people involved in acts of both creation and destruction: the Polish and Jewish architects of wartime Warsaw, as well as the Nazi architects involved in drawing up the plans for “Neues Warschau”, which was bound to replace the old city.
