Award Katchor

June 7, 2002

SVA cartooning instructor Ben Katchor is currently at the American Academy in Berlin as the recipient of the prestigious Guna S. Mundheim Fellowship. The award is intended to create a cultural bridge between America and Germany. As part of the award, recipients are invited to Berlin to pursue personal projects. In Mr. Katchor’s case, the project will be a “picture story” inspired by the city’s streets. Armed with a camera and video recorder, the comic book writer and artist is collecting research and ideas for the project, which will be titled Berlin: Street Life.
