Visiting Critic

Nicaraguan political cartoonist Pedro X. Molina was an Artist Protection Fund fellow in the Einaudi Center’s Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program (LACS) until 2022. He continues his engagement with the Einaudi Center as a visiting critic.

In Nicaragua, Molina was a well-known political cartoonist whose work regularly skewered the government of President Daniel Ortega. He fled the country in December 2018, when government forces raided and occupied the offices of his main outlet, Confidencial.
