Image and Metaphor Summit with Tim Kreider and Majed Badra

Tim Kreider came to SAW to discuss with Cartoonist Majed Badra and myself the issues of expressing charged themes in single images, in addressing concerns of sensitivity, the powerful vs the powerlessness, coming to historical understandings in political situations, plus also just cramming concepts and images together to get strong visceral cartoons.

A lot of this was on display in his very extensive show, our largest to date. Here are some…
