Henrik Schrat’s Graphic Novel Wild Things are going to happen basiert auf Gesprächen mit Dan Graham, die anlaesslich seiner Ausstellung in Birmingham, Easeside Projects 2013 geführt wurden. Kurator Gavin Wade, Mauricio Bartolotti, der Urbanist Joe Hollyoak und die Künstlerin Celine Condorelli sprachen mit Graham über seine Architekturmodell, Kunst und über Shopping Malls. Wild Things are Going to Happen ist eine Begleitpublikation zur Ausstellung. Um die Dialoge entwickelt er eine furiose Bildgeschichte, die sich aus den Inhalten der Gespräche entfaltet. In klassischem Stil gezeichnet, enthält sie unzählige Querverweise, visuelle Anmerkungen und quasididaktische Einschübe sowie einen Index am Ende des Buches. Das Format bewegt sich zwischen Comic und Katalog und gibt der mündlichen Qualität der Texte einen visuellen Raum.

Henrik Schrat’s graphic novel Wild Things are Going to Happen is based on interviews with Dan Graham from 2011. Driven by the dialogues Schrat unfolds a violent visual story drawn in a classic style containing complex visual play, cross references and quasi-didactic inserts, plus a detailed index. The publication format is located somewhere between artwork, comic book and chronicle and offers a dynamic visual space for the oral qualities of speechems and questions arising with this work, on a personal, social and economic level.
