A Slideshow Performance by Seth Tobocman
Tuesday October 16, 7:00PM • Free!
From the siege of Chicago in 1968 to the fight against Trump today, struggles against injustice disclose an intriguing continuity. Join radical comix innovator Seth Tobocman as he traces the themes that unite us and draws attention to the challenges that still give us pause.
Based at the School of Visual Art in New York City, Tobocman is a radical comic book artist and one of the founders of World War 3 Illustrated, the periodical that inaugurated the genre of comics journalism. Since the publication of his groundbreaking book You Don’t Have to Fuck People Over to Survive in 1989, Tobocman has foregrounded stories from the frontlines of struggle. From the fights against homelessness and eco-devastation to the push for system change in the face of financial ruin, Tobocman’s comix bear graphic witness to history in the making.
