Art Spiegelman & Hillary Chute in conversation with Jonathan Freedland

19 May 2023 | 1hr 11

From Superman to Maus, comic art has both subverted and triumphed over popular culture for almost a century. Our latest online event sees Jonathan Freedland joined by Maus creator Art Spiegelman and Hillary Chute, editor of the National Jewish Book Award winner Art Spiegelman’s MetaMaus and the upcoming Maus Now. They will look at the importance of the graphic novel in both popular culture and high art, the history of comic culture and the Jewish contribution to it, and, of course, the place of Maus in Holocaust literature, memory, psychology, and its enduring influence in the world today. The conversation will also include key extracts from two BBC Arena films: Art Spiegelman: Of Mice and Cats, an exploration of the inspiration behind his ground-breaking work Maus and his visit to the scenes of his parents’ experiences during the Holocaust
