With the support of the Mission of the Centenary 14-18, the Foundation Varenne, the Fondation de France and MGEN, the exhibition “Draw me the war: 1914 – 2014, Cartoonists sketching wars” was curated by Cartooning for Peace in December 2014.
For that project, Cartooning for Peace editorial team worked with the support of the Archives Department of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (French National Library).
The exhibition is composed of 10 panels about war topics (warlords, fights, chemical weapons…) displaying transversal point of views of cartoonists from 1914 to today. The purpose is also to pay tribute to cartoonists works as journalists and critic drawers during conflicts. Two booklets, for students and teachers, are available to learn and work on editorial cartoons and the main topics of the exhibition.
On March 16, 2015, the official launch of the exhibition took place at Théâtre du Rond Point in Paris by a conference with Plantu, Kroll, Bertrand Tuillier (Art Historian) and Eric Fottorino (Director of weekly 1).
From March to June 2015, 5,000 students visit the exhibition … which continues its roaming from September 2015.
