MINIMA DOCTA - DEBATE

turkye and thailand: THE AUTHORITARIAN EXAMPLES NOT TO FOLLOW
sara fabbri & CLAUDIO SOPRANZETTI 'Il re di bangkok' (graphic novel)
ece temelkuran 'how to loose a country' (NON FICTION)

moderator: Jeroen Laureyns

Kunsthal Gent, 18:30-20:30
English spoken


Modern art comes into being at the moment when the artist decides no longer to serve power, but to contradict it. This was the case in the 19th century when the French artist Honoré Daumier took on the French king in a cartoon and went to prison.

This is still the case today, when a writer (Claudio Sopranzetti) and an illustrator (Sara Fabbri), in their graphic novel 'Il Re di Bangkok', take up arms against the military dictatorship in Thailand that follows and murders its opponents abroad. Claudio and Sara explain this dramatic recent Thai history and how they have established this collaboration between an academic writer and an illustrator.

In the second part of the evening the Turkish writer Ece Temelkuran will also be a guest. In her book 'Verloren Land' (Lost Land) she explains how each country can slide from a democracy to a dictatorship in seven steps. Finally, our three guests of this evening will enter into a dialogue with each other.
