We have a bunch of online events coming up in May that may interest you, if you're at all into editorial cartooning (we assume you are, since you are reading this blog). So, save the date for:
May 3 - Evergreen Satire (on World Press Freedom Day)
Together with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision we are working on a project to give new relevance to historical editorial cartoons. We'll have more details about this project soon, as we are working on a big event in September. On May 3, we will kick off the project on Instagram at 5.30pm CEST with a guest expert, talking about the similarities and differences of cartoons that were made a century ago and cartoons that are drawn today. More details will follow soon.
May 7 - Cartoonist 2 Cartoonist
Join us on Instagram on Friday May 7 at 6.30pm CEST for the second episode of Cartoonist 2 Cartoonist, where CM editors Tjeerd Royaards and Emanuele Del Rosso will give constructive feedback on a selection of cartoons that were submitted for review.
If you'd like a chance to have your work reviewed, you can send it to [email protected]
May 19 - LOL: The Limits Of Laughter
This is the second online event of Cartoons in Court, a three-year research project coordinated by the Institute for Advanced Study at Central European University about legal controversies around cartoons and humor. During the event, the researchers will present their progress. We are also delighted to have a special guest: Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor for the New Yorker for 20 years, will join us and offer his insights on the limits of satire and (self-)censorship.
Join us on May 19 between 4pm CEST and 5.30pm CEST. More details will follow soon.
