Marx Reloaded and Returns in Nottingham

On 24 May, Jason Barker will be introducing Marx Reloaded at the Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery. His talk will focus on the film's animation and the challenges of representing Karl Marx as a non-fictional character. He will also be discussing his upcoming film Marx Returns and revealing previously unseen drawings from his work in progress. His talk will be followed by a screening of Marx Reloaded.

Jason's talk is part of a series at Nottingham Contemporary entitled "The Critical Currency of Caricature", and includes a discussion on 29 May with acclaimed graphic novelist - and creator of Watchmen, From Hell, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Alan Moore.
