The annual exhibit of political cartoons, Behind the Lines, opened yesterday at MAD.
This exhibition celebrates Australia’s wonderful tradition of political cartooning. Published in newspapers, journals and online, cartoons are part of the public record of a nation’s political life. Each cartoon is a snapshot of the major events and personalities of the last year. With wit and wisdom they provide an opportunity to reflect on the state of Australian politics and expose the robust nature of Australian democracy.
Behind the Lines is a Museum of Australian Democracy travelling exhibition.
