In this unique two-part talk cartoonist Kate Evans will explore her recent and current cutting-edge comic-book work.
Red Rosa: the graphic biography of Rosa Luxemburg has been described by Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell as “utterly brilliant: the best book I’ve read this year” and by the economics editor of Newsnight, Paul Mason as “stunningly good.” Cartoon Kate will introduce us to Rosa Luxemburg’s inspirational story, and show how she uses the graphic novel form to bring it to life.
Followed by Threads: The Calais Cartoon. Excerpts from Evans’s current work on the refugee crisis. “Heartwarming and heartbreaking.” “Tells a tale with humanity and humour. The very existence of the Calais camp is a cause for shame for Europe and the sanitary conditions there are stomach-churning. But this cartoon brings to life the inextinguishable flames of humanity that still manage to shine, despite everything.”
