Keynote: Visual storytelling: Making a picture book on Frida Kahlo´s Life And Art Through Analog And Digital Resources


In the years after her death in 1954 Frida Kahlo´s work was little known outside the Surrealist society and the Mexican art scene. But in the 21st century she is widely recognized all over the world. 

Det hjertet husker (What the heart remembers) is a fictional picture book aimed to convey her art to children. This keynote discusses affordances of analogue and digital tools in an illustration process where biographical details and recognition of the artists work is of importance.
