Drawing in peace

This new temporary exhibition, which will be held at Stavelot Abbey until March 2022, is dedicated to press cartoons around the world, with the title “Drawing in Peace.” Fifteen years after the case of the Danish caricatures, the exhibition takes another look at press cartoons and, more generally, freedom of expression in Belgium, but also in the four corners of the world.

The exhibition comprises two sections:
  • Freedom of expression in press cartoons
On the 15th anniversary of the creation of Cartooning for Peace (Paris), an international network bringing together 225 cartoonists, Stavelot Abbey, and the association are coming together to present a selection of press cartoons on the major themes of society and freedom of expression: censorship, women’s rights, minority rights, environmental emergencies, immigration, pedophilia, etc.
The cartoonists use humour and irony to decry, accuse, and voice citizens’ concerns, with drawings, short films, and other interviews with press cartoonists explaining the “limits” of press cartoons.
  • Press cartoons and caricatures in Belgium since 1830
As the history of Belgium is so prolific and varied,  it could be retold through press cartoons. Monarchy, academic wars, community problems, political scandals, heritage, etc. – Belgium is an ideal playing field for press cartoonists!

Stavelot Abbey presents specific topics through images from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, which come from Belgian institutions, private collections, and renowned cartoonists.
