Living together… A great challenge for our modern societies, characterized by their ability to be, at the same time, opened to globalization and tempted to withdraw into themselves – looking at the alarming rise of nationalism. Yet, working on how to live together is the only option we have to create a peaceful and democratic world.

Living together? No one better than cartoonists to debate about it! Using cliché and caricature’s impertinence, they manage to deconstruct stereotypes and challenge preconceived ideas to show that dialogue, respect, valuing diversity and freedom of opinion are more than ever hot topics.

This is what the exhibition “Connecting people – Cartoons for peaceful coexistence” shows through 80 editorial cartoons from all around the world, divided into 6 thematics: stereotypes, solidarity and migrants, dialogue and freedoms, respect and life philosophies, equality, and pollution and environment.

“Connecting people – Cartoons for peaceful coexistence” also includes the broadcasting of video clips showing the behing-the-scenes, since the exhibition was curated by Molenbeek’s youth in collaboration with cartoonists from Cartooning for Peace and the Maison des Cultures et de la Cohésion sociale (Cultural and social cohesion center).

Famous cartoonists from here and elsewhere are moreover invited on the 16th and 17th of November to meet with Molenbeek’s inhabitants and young people and to debate on these fundamental issues: Cécile BertrandKrollGeluck as for Belgian talents but also Willis from Tunis (Tunisia), Kichka (Israel), Hossam Al Saadi (Syria) and Plantu (France).

Rendez-vous at the Château du Karreveld in Molenbeek, Belgium, from 18th November to 30th November.
