• The Paradox of Identity

    The Paradox of Identity

    Does your passport define your identity, or is it a means by which the state you live in has defined your identity before you were even born? No other concept has so many facets as identity: the way you define yourself can empower you, but the way you are defined by others can limit or even oppress you. In October 2015, we organized a 24-hour cartoon challenge for the Veerstichting, an annual two-day symposium in Leiden, The Netherlands.

The Milk Story is an independent Dutch platform that wants to discuss the role of the dairy sector with a broad audience and relevant stakeholders. With Cartoon Movement, The Milk Story explores different perspectives on milk, with editorial cartoons. Although this might not seem a subject that automatically suits editorial cartoons, the themes that relate to the production are important ones. Cartoons produced for this project focus on sustainable agriculture, and the need to feed a growing world population.
