'Maus' cartoonist Art Spiegelman on finding art in disorder
Art Spiegelman finds art in disorder, even catastrophe. He can't help it. Calls it his muse. The Holocaust. September 11, 2001. Death in the family. Things some would wish to forget and bury, cartoonist Spiegelman wants you, needs you, to remember. The famed author of the Pulitzer-Prize winning graphic novel "Maus" and numerous New Yorker covers explains all with a candour that is darkly hilarious. He also talks about the first ever retrospective of his life's work at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
