Did you ever wonder how the duos of The Half Truth posters were matched? We ran an incredibly exciting tombola at Wobby.club HQ.
Take a break (it may result in a nap) and see how 6 writers and 6 artists got together and how fate delivered them their dilemma. If you don't understand Dutch, no worries, just enjoy the music.
The Risograph printed posters are for sale in the shop of Graphic Matters (open until October 22th) and will be on our webshop soon.
On October 1st we will launch the new issue of Wobby at festival Graphic Matters during Radio WobTit, where you can meet the artists of the project The Half Truth.
Listen to the show from your couch, the football field or with your parents-in-law, as the radio show will be live broadcasted through Wobby’s website and on Graphic Matter's and Wobby’s Facebook pages.
On Sunday October 1st, Graphic Matters will be transformed into a radio station. Hear how Wobby and De Titaan make live radio from the festival location between 15:00 and 17:00. The radio show is a result of project and exhibition The Half Truth (De Halve Waarheid).
(Comic) illustrator Jeroen de Leijer will present the show along with Mat Wijn (known from Radio Bergeijk and De Avonden). The radio show will be broadcasted LIVE on Wobby’s website and through Graphic Matters' and Wobby’s Facebook pages. But, you’re also more than welcome to join the festival and see and hear the broadcast with your own eyes and ears! Many guests will be present. Other than The Half Truth participants there will be writers and illustrators from the Wobby #11 magazine, which will launch that afternoon. With the title ‘Daarom!’ (Thát’s Why!) the statement will answer a lot of questions in this confusing time.
In the broadcast Lukas Meijsen, editor of De Titaan, interviews Christiaan Weijts about the future of porn. Anneroos Goosen, chief editor of De Titaan, talks to Nick J. Swarth about his activism. Jeroen de Leijer starts a dialogue with Dennis Elbers, Graphic Matters' creative director, with the help of cards from De Kenjezelf Kit. In addition the Moral Weather forecast will be taken care of by Anton Dautzenberg.
In between interviews, illustrator Jip Piet makes live music and Sanne Boekel takes care of illustrated commentary. You as a listener can join the Wobby Masterclass and maybe you will win a Half Award of the The Half Truth Quiz.

Festival Graphic Matters
Chassé Kazerne – Parade 12, Breda
Festival Graphic Matters has begun! And so did our project De Halve Waarheid / The Half Truth.
We already had a great start with the first of 5 weekends where will be present and doing our best at the festival.
Every weekend of the festival you can join us and make your own pamphlet with our Risograph (stencil) printer. A pamphlet is always printed on both sides, a pro on one side and a con on the other side. You are responsible for the distribution of the pamphlet. The opposite messages spread confusion and instigate debate outside of your trusted social media bubble.
More information on who will be present during the workshops here.
Breda's hottest newsroom starts as an exhibition of 12 riso posters made by six duo's of artists and writers. Together they visualize the pros and cons of current dilemmas. The arguments are so damn good that the dilemma's never get resolved and the only thing left for you to do is to buy these limited prints to hang over your bed.
The Half Truth posters are made by artists Jan Hamstra, Jeroen de Leijer, Maia Matches, Bobbi Oskam, Jip Piet, Steppie Lloyd Trumpstein and writers Anton Dautzenberg, Joke Hermsen, Ted van Lieshout, Nick J. Swarth, Christiaan Weijts and Micha Wertheim.
The 6 sets of posters are for sale at the festival shop in a limited edition of 50 per poster, so grab them while you can! Risograph printed on A2 format by Knust Press Nijmegen.
On October 1st we will launch the new issue of Wobby at the festival during Radio WobTit, where you can meet the artists of the project.
