About the event

Kuper will present a career retrospective with a focus on the work he's created inspired by Mexico.

Painting a vivid, personal portrait of social and political upheaval in Oaxaca, Mexico, this unique memoir employs comics, bilingual essays, photos, and sketches to chronicle the events that unfolded around a teachers' strike and led to a seven-month siege. When award-winning cartoonist Peter Kuper and his wife and daughter moved to the beautiful, 15th-century colonial town of Oaxaca in 2006, they planned to spend a quiet year or two enjoying a different culture and taking a break from the U.S. political climate under the Bush administration. What they hadn't counted on was landing in the epicenter of Mexico's biggest political struggle in recent years. Timely and compelling, this extraordinary firsthand account presents a distinct artistic vision of Oaxacan life, from explorations of the beauty of the environment to graphic portrayals of the fight between strikers and government troops

Presenter:

Peter Kuper’s illustrations and comics have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the world. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Nation, and MAD Magazine where he has written and illustrated SPY vs. SPY every issue since 1997. He lived in Oaxaca, Mexico with his wife and daughter from 2006-2008 and, since they ate Chapulines, have returned many times subsequently. His sketchbooks and writings about his Oaxaca experience, Diario De Oaxaca a bilingual collection, was published in 2009 and several updated editions have been issued up to 2020.
