Behind the Lines

Exhibition and Shows

1 Mar 2019 to 23 Apr 2019

Behind the Lines: The Year’s Best Political Cartoons celebrates another year in Australia’s unique, vibrant and fearless tradition of political cartooning. No politician, party or policy is safe from the nation’s best cartoonists; witty, powerful or ribald, their images offer an astutely observed journey through twelve months in our political life.

Behind the Lines is a travelling exhibition developed by Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, proudly supported by the National Collection Institutions Touring and Outreach program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.

In 2019, Behind the Lines is presented as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
