The massacre at Charlie Hebdo brought urgent questions about censorship, satire, offense and artistic responsibility to the forefront. In response to this, the National Coalition Against Censorship, the PEN American Center and The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) invited a panel of cartoonists to discuss the future of satire, censorship, and self-censorship, as well as the unique power of images especially when married to language.
Watch the discussion now featuring Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning artist and illustrator of Maus and Maus II; acclaimed artist and writer Molly Crabapple; New Yorker and TOON Books editorial director Françoise Mouly; and cartoonist Emmanuel "Manu" Letouzé.
After the horrible attacks that occurred at the Charlie Hebdo offices, NCAC, along with 22 other free speech groups, drafted a statement condemning the massacre. Read the full statement here and view past Charlie Hebdo covers that were unfortunately censored by several news organizations.
