Cartoons at Large - Exhibition at Alliance française of Johannesburg [fr]
The Alliance française in Southern Africa presents an exhibition on freedom of expression as seen through the eyes of 50 cartoonists from all over the world. The aim is to stir up a debate on freedom of expression.
The Cartoons at Large (‘‘Dessins en liberté”) exhibition comprises 12 panels of press illustrations by 50 artists from around the world. Each panel is devoted to a specific theme concerning freedom of expression, such as censorship, Internet, corruption, women’s rights, rebellions, climate, sports, racism, etc.
While echoing the attacks against Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, this exhibit is broadening the perspective by illustrating the manner in which freedom of expression today comes into play on all continents.
This exhibition is a joint project between the Institut français and the French weekly paper Courrier international.
