Behind the Lines 2020: The year in political cartoons

Exhibition and Shows

2 Aug 2021 to 15 Nov 2021 Daily Event

Behind the Lines presents the best political cartoons from 2020, including digital cartoons for the first time. With the fitting theme, ‘A dog’s breakfast’, the exhibition helps us make sense of ‘what the pup’ happened in 2020.

From the bushfire summer to the global pandemic, the nation’s political cartoonists had plenty to work with, with Hawaiian shirts and burnt trees giving way to masks and spiky balls.

Smirk, laugh or grimace at 2020 through the eyes of a political cartoonist – when have we needed our cartoonists so much? Don’t miss it.
