Comics and Disability”, MOCCA, New York

The rise of dis­abil­ity stud­ies has prompted a non-hier­ar­chi­cal recon­sid­er­a­tion of dis­abil­ity. In par­al­lel, the emer­gence of “out­sider art” has enlarged aes­thetic pos­si­bil­i­ties within art, but not with­out intro­duc­ing new cat­e­gory prob­lems. This panel traces emerg­ing points of engage­ment between these issues and comics. Ilan Manouach will dis­cuss the Shapereader, his inno­v­a­tive tac­tile lan­guage for blind read­ers. Anne-Françoise Rouche is the direc­tor of La “S” Grand Ate­lier in Viel­salm, Bel­gium, an arts cen­ter for per­sons with men­tal dis­abil­i­ties that orga­nizes col­lab­o­ra­tions with con­tem­po­rary artists. Frémok artist Dou­ble­Bob, who has par­tic­i­pated in this project, will join the dis­cus­sion. Mod­er­ated by Bill Kar­talopou­los.
