Panel discussion
Sunday, 15 October, 10:30am – 11:30am
Comics Clock Tower Chamber, part of the small and beautiful series

Comics offer the perfect format for revealing the unseen and unknown in a subtle yet graphic way. Encouraging you to read between the panels (not the lines) will be three remarkable comics creators, Hannah Berry, Darryl Cunningham and Fumio Obata. Their recent work is all about exposing truths using different styles and approaches.

Hannah Berry with her new book published by Cape, ‘Livestock’, offers a socio-political satire on the relationship between politics, the media and us. It also casts a long, sad look at the disposability of women in the public eye and features many awful song lyrics, written by Hannah.

Darryl Cunningham’s new book ‘Graphic Science’ is being launched at LICAF by Myriad, and is a series of graphic essays on overlooked, sidelined, excluded or discredited men and women who have been or are key figures in scientific discovery.

Fumio Obata will offer a special insight into his LICAF commissioned-project ‘On the Palm of Unknown’ which makes surprising connections between the nuclear plants at Fukushima and Sellafield and explores the invisible connections and sentiments between the two different worlds.

Hosted by Alex Fitch.

There will be signings immediately after the event.

Telling the Truth is sponsored by Jonathan Cape and Myriad Editions.
