Trumped by Brexit: A Cartoon Guide to the last 12 months

20 April 2017,  7.30pm at the Fox & Firkin

In a year where it feels the world has turned upside down, Martin Rowson, one of the UK’s leading cartoonists and political satirists and ‘scourge of the political establishment’, will give his take on Brexit and the US elections through his cartoons which have appeared in The Guardian and elsewhere. How did it happen? Why didn’t we see it coming? What does it say about us as Western nations, and what can cartoons add to the subject? How does satire help us to explore current events? What responsibilities does the cartoonist have when it comes to people taking offence? Followed by a Q&A, be prepared to be shocked, enlightened and thoroughly entertained!
Please join us for this rare opportunity for an informal and intimate discussion from one of the UK’s most distinct political commentators and help support Brockley Max. (All ticket sales to go towards this year’s festival.)
