Cartooning Syria

Political artists have lived with censorship and threats, and for many artists exile has been the only option. The exhibition, Cartooning Syria, explores the artistic boundaries of freedom of expression and presents political comic strips and drawings by more than 20 Syrian artists. The exhibition will be opened by the President of the Norwegian Parliament, Olemic Thommesen.
