Evergreen satire: historical cartoons in a modern perspective

2021 – Evergreen satire network

Evergreen Satire is a partnership with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision to give new relevance to historical editorial cartoons. Together, we are building a network of institutions that house historical cartoons or have have expert knowledge in the area of editorial cartoons.

With this new network, we will explore ways to open up these archives and to present the cartoons therein in an engaging way to a general audience. We will do this with events and exhibitions.

We launched our new network with an event on September 15, where we showed how the work of cartoonists that worked a century ago is still relevant today. Guests included: Jürgen Kaumkötter, director of the Center for Persecuted Arts in Solingen, Germany; Rob Phillips, Head of Archives and Manuscripts Section and the Welsh Political Archive at the National Library of Wales; and Jop Euwijk, curator News, Current Affairs and Information at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. And of course Emanuele Del Rosso and Tjeerd Royaards from Cartoon Movement.
