The traveling „International exhibition of political cartoons“ is an international project presenting the most important and most respected cartoonists in the Visegrad countries and the U.S.

Daryl Cagle (USA), Pavel Reisenauer (CR), Martin "Shooty" Šútovec (SR), Andrzej Mleczko (PL) and Csaba Varga (HU) are presenting their critical view on politics and society. In 2016 the exhibition will visit 4 capital cities in Central Europe. After the exhibition in Bratislava, the visitors can see the works of renowned political castoonists in Prague, Warsaw and Budapest.

"One of our greatest freedoms is to crack jokes at our government’s expense. . . . When we’re afraid to be funny about our political opponents, there won’t be any politics left, just dictators." - Bob Hope, 1955

This sentiment speaks to the fundamental importance of freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of the press in a democratic society.

The International exhibition of political cartoons is intended to expose diverse central European publics to one of the United States' most provocative and prolific cartoonists, Daryl Cagle, who employs satire at the expense of politicians from across the political spectrum. We are delighted to pair his work with that of premier cartoonists in Czech Repuplic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland.

Resienauer, Šútovec, Mleczko and Varga are also using their art to encourage their audience to think critically about the political decisions of the day and inject humor into daily political life.

We hope that upon viewing this exhibit, the public will appreciate that the satire and scrutiny employed by journalists and cartoonists serve to inform and entertain the general public, and keep leaders accountable. This service is essential to any democracy.

The project „International exhibition of political cartoons 2016“ was supported by the IVF (International Visegrad Fund) and CREAS MEDIA ltd.
