Artists and designers around the world are offering their visual tributes to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, and we’ve collected some of the most poignant.
Four of France’s most highly regarded cartoonists are among the 12 people murdered in an attack at the Paris office of the magazine Charlie Hebdo on the morning of January 7.
To highlight journalism’s visual plight, yesterday’s edition of the leftist French newspaper Libération ran with blank placeholders instead of images.
Last week, the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published an image of Mohammad on its cover saying, “100 lashes if you don’t die of laughter!” Sadly, some right-wing muslim zealots firebombed the headquarters of the magazine, but don’t think that shut up the publication. No siree, this week the magazine has upped the ante and published a cartoon of the publisher making out with Mohammad under the banner, “Love is stronger than hate.” That’s right, baby. Fuck the fundamentalists.
