After two High Court decisions, the fight against federal funding for religious-only school chaplains is set to end with a test case on state anti-discrimination law.You can’t pay someone to break the law, which is what the Victorian government is now doing. And they can’t say, ‘Well, the federal government is paying us to break the law.’
Cartoons by Jason Phu
This series of cartoons explores the intersection between art and politics. Jason Phu is a Sulman Prize-winning artist. His work explores tradition and profanity, crossing the mundane with the absurd. In this suite, he draws on Philip Guston's famous exploration of Nixon's presidency, the series Poor Richard, creating for Malcolm Turnbull a character of persistent haplessness. In Phu's hands, Turnbull is buffeted by the conventions of cartooning, trapped by Phu's impoverished line, unable to make sense or give sense. His travails are endless, dislocated, like scenes from a myth or a Chan Buddhist story or a Looney Tunes episode.
