2 Dec 2017 to 1 Dec 2018
Roll up, roll up to Behind the Lines 2017 at the Museum of Australian Democracy and marvel at the political cartooning spectacle that is The Three Ring Circus.
Showcasing the year’s best political cartoons, The Three Ring Circus captures a world where fact and fiction collide and ringmasters, jugglers and acrobats have all stepped into the political Big Top.
From postal votes and citizenship chaos to penalty rates and constitutional recognition, 2017 was a tumultuous year in politics. Its cavalcade of political characters and sensational events provided rich material for our nation’s cartoonists who continue to look behind the lines of the daily political sideshows to capture the spirit of our democracy in all its passion, scepticism and humour.
