Linvitation to Cartoonists Worldwide to participate You, the west & the Middle East.. First Edition Cartoon event in the center of Europe February 2016, MUNTPUNT, Brussels..
Cartoons engage creatively with current affairs. Uniquely capable of zooming in to magnify contradictions or untruths, and zooming out to condense wider connections or greater truths, they constitute a supremely subversive form of expression.

The event "YOU, THE WEST & THE MIDDLE-EAST" provides a forum for the presentation of fierce, uncensored cartoons that force viewers to critically confront and reflect upon mutual understandings and misunderstandings of relations between "the West" and "The Middle East".

Charlie Hebdo, radicalization, IS, the war on terror, drones, the war in Iraq, the refugee crisis ... these developments leave no one untouched, and demonstrate the vital need for greater insight and understanding of what is happening in the world today.

While the success of this event relies on input and perspective from around the world, cartoonists from the Middle East are particularly encouraged to submit their work. If you would like to contribute to this groundbreaking exhibition, please submit a selection of your cartoons (maximum 3) before December 15, 2015. Original work addressing the theme of the exhibition is very welcome, but please feel free to submit previously published or exhibited work.

With your vital input, we are confident of putting together a fascinating event in February 2016. The exhibition will be accompanied by discussions between cartoonists, documentaries, lectures, workshops, and other relevant activities.

For further information regarding registration, submission of your work and other practical matters please click here! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions or concerns about this ambitious exhibition. You can reach us at: cartoon@muntpunt.be
