  • Cartoon Propaganda

    Cartoon Propaganda

    There’s a line between thought-provoking, sharp, even controversial cartoons and cartoons that are simply propaganda, reinforcing prejudice and hatred. The line is not always clear to see, but sometimes it is, as in the case of the 2nd Holocaust International Cartoon & Caricature Exhibition 2016. We feel the need to state that this competition goes against everything we believe editorial cartoons should stand for. It’s sad to see excellent drawing skills wasted on images that do not in any way contribute to a better world.
