Lina Flórez and Pablo Pérez in conversation with Yesica Prado

Three Horizons

Medellín 2023, 

Lina Flórez and Pablo Pérez are the founders of Altais Cómics, a pioneering project in Colombia dedicated to the production, research and dissemination of independent national comics. As creators, both have produced the comics Emilia, Crónicas de una mujer de 1,49 (Chronicles of a woman of 1.49), and Tres horizontes (Three Horizons), the latter being the winner of the Convocatoria de Estímulos para el Arte y la Cultura de la Secretaría de Cultura Ciudadana de Medellín. In Tres horizontes, the authors fuse comic strips with journalism to narrate the lives of three women of different ages and social strata, revealing aspects of their daily lives in Medellín and the way in which they face the challenges they encounter in their professions. In this conversation, the authors will tell us more about the process of creating this work, their work at the helm of Altais Cómics and how they understand the art of comics.
