Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Kathrin Röggla: Modern Day Salarymen
April 30 | Austrian Cultural Forum | NYC
Yoshihiro Tatsumi interviewed by David Haglund
Yoshihiro Tatsumi began depicting the lives of Japanese working people in his comics more than four decades ago. From men cleaning out sewers to women practicing the world’s oldest profession, Tatsumi has considered the way work — and the lack of it — shapes our identities and our culture. Join him for a conversation about the way our working lives have changed since the 1960s — and about his own working life as a writer and artist.
