On the occasion of World Press Freedom Day on 3 May 2019, BOZAR and Cartooning for Peace, an international network of 184 press cartoonists, will be joining forces to present a unique selection of press cartoons on major issues concerning society and freedom of expression: women’s rights, censorship, ecological emergencies, migration, paedophilia, etc. With humour and irony, in a few short lines, these drawings condemn, accuse and express citizens’ concerns.

A series of interviews with press cartoonists explaining the “boundaries” of the press cartoon and a selection of cartoons will accompany these short films.
Opening: Tuesday 16 April, 7:30 pm
