Mattotti’s adaptation of the classic Jeykll and Hyde narrative is a unique and stylistically rich interpretation. Shifting the setting from Victorian London to Weimar Berlin, his graphic adaptation is closely linked to the artistic expression of the time. Mattotti understands art as a reference system that can be activated and used to suggest new interpretations of an old story. He weaves quotes and references to a multitude of visual sources into his adaptation, from Expressionist film to paintings by Otto Dix and George Grosz. These artistic references open up the adapted text and enable the reader to view it in a new light. At the same time, his disregard for the distinction between highbrow and lowbrow consciously dissolves the boundaries between art and comics and further strengthens the medium’s position as ninth art. To analyze Mattotti’s approach to art, the categories of “filtered memory” and “direct reference” will be introduced and expanded upon.
