Abusing Power


Doctoral candidate Kathryn Desplanque is presenting a paper entitled "The Historical Art Star: Caricaturing Visual Artists in Late Eighteenth- and Early Nineteenth-Century Paris," at the conference, Abusing Power: The Visual Politics of Satire, co-organized by C21 Writings, Royal Pavilion & Museums, and the University of Brighton. This conference brings together both historians of graphic satire, such as Ian Haywood and Brian Maidment, and cartoonists like Steve Bell and Martin Rowson, to consider the history, politics, and future of the satirical image.
