Behind the Lines 2022: The year in political cartoons

Exhibition and Shows

3 Feb 2023 to 30 Nov 2023 Daily Event

This year, MoAD takes a giant leap into outer space with the theme Off the Planet, reflecting upon a year in which Australia re-opened to the world and we all burst from our living rooms, wide-eyed and asking the question ‘What else is out there?’

See how dozens of artists, including Political Cartoonist of the Year David Pope, have interpreted the year with wit, originality and tongue-in-cheek derision.

Visitors can climb aboard the Democracy One spaceship and take their pick of cartooning co-pilots, with Fiona Katauskas, Kamsani bin Salleh and James Hillier (Nordacious) along for the ride. Or, try a game of Guess Who with a political twist.

So, prepare for take-off as MoAD invites you to boldly go where no museum has gone before.
