BEN KATCHOR:
TALES OF THE CITIES


Experience the modern city afresh as seen through the quirky, quixotic eyes of MacArthur Genius award-winner Ben Katchor, cartoonist for Metropolis, The New Yorker and Forward and author of the graphic novels Julius Knipl, Real-Estate Photographer and The Jew Of New York. Katchor will be in conversation with Peter Blegvad (Leviathan, The Comics Journal, The Ganzfeld) and will also discuss his opera, The Carbon Copy Building premiering in Liverpool on October 25 and 26, and give one of his signature stentorian comic readings.

Where: Nash Room, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Friday, October 20, 2006 - 7pm
