Art Spiegelman has almost singlehandedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto the literature shelves. In 1992, he won the Pulitzer Prize for his masterful Holocaust narrative MAUS – which portrayed Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. His comics are best known for their shifting graphic styles, their formal complexity and controversial content.

This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of the world’s great artists and innovators, speaking in passionate defence of the medium he has redefined.

Art Spiegelman appears for the Wheeler Centre  in association with the Sydney Opera House and the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University.
