Censored cartoons from all over the world, May 10 - June 9, 2019
The image is a powerful weapon. And cartoonists know how to use this weapon, wielding it to illustrate the wrongs of society. Cartoons criticize those in power, and expose power abuse and corruption. But sometimes the cartoon is so powerful that newspapers refuse to publish it. Sometimes this is justified, for instance when a cartoon is discriminating or unnecessarily offending. But other times these refusals to publish are more debatable.
In a new exhibition, organized in partnership with Libertum, a Dutch organization committed to peace and freedom, we have collected 40 cartoons that were either refused by newspapers or that caused controversy after they were published.
The exhibition can be seen until June 9, during the weekends, in the Chocoladefabriek in Gouda.
CM editor Tjeerd Royaards will offer guided tours and workshops.
