Check out mono.kultur #30 Chris Ware in a new film by Art21, “Chris Ware: Someone I’m Not. From his home and studio in Oak Park, Illinois, artist Chris Ware shares motivations and challenges for telling stories from the perspectives of others in his work. “I distinctly remember being told by my teachers, if you draw women, you’re colonizing them with your eyes,” Ware recalls of art school. “Do you not draw women and then maintain an allegiance to some sort of experience that only you have had? Or do you try to expand your understanding and your empathy for other human beings?”
