Malaysia: to fight through cartoons
12 Jan 2012
ARTICLE 19 invites you to the launch of 'TO FIGHT THROUGH CARTOON', the new London print exhibition by acclaimed Malaysian political cartoonist Zunar. This series of editorial cartoons is banned in his home country and now travels to London from Bilbao, Spain, where it received warm praise for its searing exploration of state corruption, the 'Anwar conspiracy' and the repression of freedom of expression.
Panel participants include Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, President of the Malaysian National Human Rights Society (HAKAM) and Clare Rewcastle Brown, an investigative journalist and founder of Sarawak Report and Radio Free Sarawak, in a frank discussion of freedom of expression, censorship and political dissent in Malaysia.
The exhibition launch will follow, to include an informal reception and a live drawing demonstration by Zunar.
Date: Wednesday 15th February, 6.30 - 8.30pm
Venue: Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Rd
London EC1R 3GA
