“Drawing Freely” (Dessins en Liberté) is an exhibition composed of 12 panels of cartoons made by nearly 50 cartoonists from all around the world. Each panel addresses a specific topic linked to freedom of expression: censorship, internet, corruption, women’s rights, rebellions, racism… All of the drawings, made by cartoonists of 45 different nationalities, were published in local papers. Whilst echoing the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, this exhibition wants to illustrate how freedom of expression is exercised on all the continents.
The event is presented by the Institut Français and the Courrier International and reproduced within the frame of the Franco-German Cultural Fund 2016.
