After Charlie: What’s Next for Art, Satire, and Censorship?

FIAF’S Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street 

With Art Spiegelman, Molly Crabapple, Françoise Mouly, and Emmanuel “Manu” Letouzé

The massacre at Charlie Hebdo brought urgent questions about censorship, satire, offense and artistic responsibility to the forefront. In response to this, a panel of cartoonists will discuss the future of satire, censorship, and self-censorship, as well as the unique power of images especially when married to language.

This panel will feature Art Spiegelman, best known for his graphic novel Maus; Molly Crabapple, well-known cartoonist and journalist; Françoise Mouly, editor and New Yorker Art Director; and Emmanuel “Manu” Letouzé, “socio-political” cartoonist and economist for the United Nations.

Presented by PEN American Center, the National Coalition Against Censorship, and The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF).
