Fort Lewis College 1000 Rim Drive Durango, CO 81301 admission@fortlewis.edu 877-352-2656 http://www.fortlewis.edu *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Following a horrific terror attack at the French weekly satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in early 2015, the art of political cartooning entered into common discussion at a level not previously seen. Often dismissed as trite, silly or crude, political cartoons are actually an extremely powerful form of protest art, which more than once have shaped the flow of history. We’ll have a look at the the evolution of editorial cartooning in the western world in this episode of Fortifact: A Razor Sharp Pen: The History of Political Cartooning. Political cartoons as a genre of art can be separated into some component parts: a caricature or surreal juxtaposition, a comment on a topical issue or person, and a witty concept that ties the previous two things together. Throw in some iconic symbols and you have a powerful statement. Caricature, or the art of depicting a person in an exaggerated manner, has ancient roots. Some of the earliest examples we have date from the Roman city of Pompeii in 79 BCE. This ancient caricature of a politician could have been drawn yesterday. The Italian polymath Leonardo DaVinci delighted in the grotesque, and it was from the Italian, caricare, (kari Kari) which means “exaggeration,” that we derive the word. For most of its early life, caricature as an art form was intended for private audiences, often commissioned by the rich for their own amusement. The tradition of satirically commenting on topical issues got started in the early 18th century with the English polymath William Hogarth. Mainly a painter by trade, Hogarth popularized the idea of using illustration to moralize against the sins of the day. By the late 1700’s editorial cartoons were becoming increasingly understood as a new and influential political tool. In fact, American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin was an early adopter, creating a cartoon extolling colonial unity that is still used today. Following the French Revolution in 1789, editorial cartooning really began to take off, again in England, with its great exponents James Gillray and Thomas Rowlandson. In the 1843, a satirical British magazine called Punch debuted. The publication was scathing in its mockery of the rich and powerful, and brought the term “cartoon” into it’s modern usage as a non-realistic drawing. By the end of the 19th century, newspapers in many countries featured political cartoons. Throughout the 20th century, editorial cartooning continued evolving into simpler forms that relied more on witty, biting punchlines than realistically drawn images. Interestingly, famed children’s book author Dr. Suess freelanced as a political cartoonist during WWII. With the invention of the internet at the end of the 20th century, journalism changed radically, as much of the profit margin collapsed under the preferences of a digital generation whose expectation for online content is that it is free. In 1995, there were over 200 professional staff cartoonists earning a living in american newspapers. In 2015, there are about 50. And yet, those few are reaching, and affecting, larger audiences than ever, alining with an increasing cohort of freelance artists that are not tied to a specific organization. What the future holds for political cartooning is as yet uncertain, but this powerful art form is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.

(20 Nov 2015) LEAD IN: A Tunisian cartoonist has launched a new book "The Perfect Dictator's Manual". Nadia Khiari's cartoons took on a new meaning after the 2011 revolution. And she's been helped along the way by her own creation and feline friend: Willis. STORY-LINE: Meet Willis. He's from Tunis. Willis is one of the most famous cartoon cats in North Africa. The woman behind Willis is Nadia Khiari, an art teacher at a middle school in the capital's suburbs. For years she's been drawing Willis' exploits and scrapes. But since 2011 - with the Tunisian Revolution - the cat has become more political. It began, says Khiari, when she saw former president Ben Ali's promise freedom of speech, in exchange for staying in power: "As for your political requests, I understood them. Yes, I understood them and I decided to give press freedom on all levels and will not block access to the Internet, and there will be no more scrutiny over the media." Exasperated, and pushed by her family, she posted some of her cartoons on Facebook. The success was immediate. Hundreds of people shared the posts online and Khiari carried on drawing. Almost five years later, Willis is one of Tunisia's best known political commentators, with over 42,000 fans online. "At the beginning, there was no calculation behind (the cartoon). I did it because I felt the need to bear witness, and also to take a step back while drawing, to be able to summarise a bit more because we can quickly be extremely focused since so many things are happening. And as I went along, I continued because things continued to happen," she recalls. Khiari is launching her third book, 'The Perfect Dictator's Manual". It's a tongue-in-cheek look at how to gain and keep power for all those would-be dictators. It also includes real quotes by different dictators throughout history such as Napoleon, Hitler or Stalin. "I'm happy because I saw some youth, some teenagers also understand the book which I hope is somehow educational. I looked at everything that was happening, and I also did research on the situation in the world, which depressed me because there aren't that many democracies." Khiari says drawing and sharing her cartoons is rewarding and she receives a lot in exchange. People send her messages of support online, share info and jokes with her. At the book launch, dedicated fans are receiving signed copied from Khiari. "It's the courage to say out loud what I think many Tunisians think on a daily basis but do not dare to say," says Brice Faravel, Tunis resident. "I would also say that numerous comments or puns that are in the books and the cartoons of Willis apply to many other countries other than Tunisia." As a political cartoonist Khiari knows she has to be short, sharp and to the point. "I think it is always very striking, and I love caricatures in general, especially since I think everything can be said in very few words with great relevance, so it's a very difficult art," says Armele Lidou. Khiari has a wealth of inspiration to work with. But she's happy to retire Willis when the time is right. "I continue because it amuses me. The day it doesn't amuse me any longer, I'll stop and do something else." Like any good satirist though, she says this with a glint of irony in her eyes. "I'll kill the cat the day we have a beautiful democracy in Tunisia."

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Death Race 2050 A delirious blend of high-octane action, razor-sharp political satire and full-throttle mayhem, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 arrives on Blu-ray™ combo pack, DVD and Digital HD January 17, 2017, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The highly anticipated reboot of the cult classic Death Race 2000, the Universal 1440 Entertainment original production straps viewers into the driver’s seat of the ultimate auto showdown, a blood-splattered no-holds-barred virtual-reality show that gleefully pits hardened road warriors against each other — and their audience. Exclusive bonus features reveal how filmmakers transformed the deadliest competition on wheels into a hair-raising, savagely funny game of life or death. Legendary filmmaking icon, Roger Corman, is back with his most outrageous film yet in this sensational, action-packed and darkly humorous reboot of the original Death Race 2000! It’s the year 2050 and America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell). The masses have been brainwashed with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, in which a motley crew of violent drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over and driving each other off the road. The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Manu Bennett), who’s half-man half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy. Produced by Roger Corman, the king of cult classics, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 stars Manu Bennett (The Hobbit) as Frankenstein and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) as the Chairman. The cast also features Burt Grinstead (“NCIS”), Marci Miller (Viper), Folake Rating R Starring: Manu Bennett, Malcolm McDowell, Marci Miller, Yancy Butler, Charlie Farrell, Burt Grinstead, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Shanna Olson Directed By G. J. Echternkamp Produced By Roger Corman Executive Produced By Julie Corman

Jon Huertas and Seamus Dever from the ABC hit television show, CASTLE (ryan / esposito), are amateur bank robbers faced with a unique dilemma. Will they stand by their political convictions or put them aside to pull off a heist? Shot on the mean streets of downtown Los Angeles, first time writer/director Lucas Spaulding employs satire, wit and a touch of violence to bring the current state of our nation's political paralasysis into razor sharp detail. http://www.sequesteredthemovie.com/ thejonhuertas.com seamusdever.com Thought i'd upload this for anyone who hasn't seen this yet.
