No upcoming dates
Roll up, roll up to Behind the Lines 2017 and marvel at the political cartooning spectacle: The Three-Ring Circus. Behind the Lines 2017 is a travelling exhibition, coming to the Bunker Cartoon Gallery from 26 October to 2 December, and proudly supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians. Showcasing the year’s best political cartoons, The Three-Ring Circus captures a world where fact and fiction collide and ringmasters, jugglers and acrobats have all stepped into the political Big Top. This year provided a cavalcade of political characters and plenty of sensational events to capture the imagination of cartoonists and the public alike. Citizenship chaos, calls for constitutional reform and a postal plebiscite. The Budget caught attention with its invitation to consider both ‘good debt’ and ‘bad debt’ and Donald Trump dominated front pages with his compelling Twitter habit and outspoken responses.
