Carlos Giménez : de la dénonciation à la transmission de la mémoire

Abstract : This research focuses on the Spanish cartoonist Carlos Giménez, one of the most important artists and scriptwriters in Spain. A large part of the work is avaluable testimony of more than fifty years of history in Spain, since the Civil War to the Democratic Transition. Author resolutely committed, genuine pioneer ofautobiographical comic, Carlos Giménez is further provided with a characteristic style: a black and white graphics, a personal trait, both realistic and sometimesvery cartoonish, always at the service of ideological or social criticism. This research revolves around two main axes constituent of his work: memory and enunciation. A denunciation that now seems to be perhaps less glaring in favor of what might be called the educational purpose, for an author who puts more emphasis on the legacy of memory. Thus his last productions are more than ever in tune with the debates which agitate Spain today on the theme of Historical Memory and show how far the 9th art, production accessible to a large public is even a "didactic-pedagogic"base for younger generations.
