'Doing Damage from a Distance'

Thu 20 Feb 2014

British Cartoonists and Political Assassination

Unlike elsewhere in the world, British cartoonists rarely depicted actual executions.

Dr Nicholas Hiley, Curator of the British Cartoon Archive at the University of Kent, looks at cartoons of assassination and political killing and explores political cartooning as a form of assassination.

To take advantage of the three talks for £15 and membership special price please call 01227 378100 or visit the Beaney to book your place.

Don't forget to allow time before the lectures to view Manet's 'The Execution of Maximilian' and explore the Beaney's other permanent collections.
