Cartooning for Peace / Travelling exhibition “Decoding the stars”

Travelling exhibition “Decoding the stars”





At the time of the sixtieth anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the European construction is questioned. Economic crisis, refugees influx, terrorist attacks, the rise of populist movements and nationalist resurgences undermine the pacifist European project. Cartooning for Peace and the European Commission collaborate since several months to propose a brand-new travelling exhibition : “Decoding the stars”.

50 press cartoonists confront their visions to the ideals of those who have dreamt Europe yesterday : Victor Hugo, Robert Shuman, Louise Weiss, Jean Monnet… and today : Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Kofi Annan, etc.

Through this exhibition, cartoonists from the entire world draw with humour and irony the issues that, for more than half a century, have made the European politics. In a few cartoons, in a few speech bubbles, they highlight the citizens’ concerns. This ode to diversity and tolerance generates questions around 15 thematics: Europe and economic growth, Europe and Africa, freedom of speech, death penalty, European youth, etc.

The exhibition is created in partnership with the French representation of the European Commission. More Info.
