Cartoon Movement is on summer break in August. That means we’ll not be publishing any editor’s choices and we’ll be less active on our social media channels. We’ll be back on August 30th with cartoons, comics and new projects!

And although activities are winding down now, July was actually one of the busiest months this year, with not one but two cartoon exhibitions. Read our newsletter to get an impression of these and to see this month’s most popular cartoons.

From day one, the war in Ukraine has also been a media war. There are more images than ever, made by journalists, civilians, media and press agencies. Ukrainian and foreign journalists and media try to report the war objectively and independently. In Russia, the state controls all media with no space for independent and free journalism.
Framing the War portrays the first hundred days of the war through the lens of international news photographers and through the pen of international cartoonists. The documentary photography and satirical cartoons combined to paint a unique picture of the conflict. They invite you as a visitor to take a critical look at coverage of the war: what do I know and what do I see, and how important and how influential are the makers of the images?
This exhibition is a collection of news photos and cartoons. It includes work by news photographers who stayed in Ukraine during the first 100 days of the war. Cartoons cartoons are made by, among others, Vladimir Kazanevsky (Ukraine), Gatis Sluka (Latvia), Tjeerd Royaards (Netherlands) and Emad Hajjaj (Jordan).
