  The Swedish comic art society Seriefrämjandet opens the
  gates for the art exhibition Duckomenta in Malmö,
  southern Sweden, on October 19. The exhibition includes
  works by German artists Interducks, who since 1982 have
  created an astounding number of pastiches of famous art
  objects, seen from a Disney-inspired duck and mouse
  perspective. With their interpretations of works from
  Egyptian sculptures to modern art, created with great skill
  and knowledge about the original techniques and
  materials, the Interduck artists aim to challenge the
  borders between »fine« and popular art. Bring your sense
  of humor and experience an alternative journey through
  the duckomented history of mankind.
