The Jerusalem Press Club and the Israeli Cartoon Museum have launched the third ”Cartoon • Criticism • Care” competition among high-school students in Israel. This year, the young artists criticized current issues, focusing on the “Fake News” phenomenon, while emphasizing the balance between criticizing and considering the feelings of some audiences.
The competition was launched in 2015, following the terrorist attack on the French magazine “Charlie Hebdo”. The aatack raised several questions: How to balance between criticism of religious and social institutions and personalities and the need not to hurt too much the feelings of the observers? Should the freedom of the cartoonists be limited, because of the impact of their work on certain audiences? Adults have been debating this heatedly. Maybe the youth, with their fresh outlook, expressed artistically in cartoons, could come up with surprising ideas.
”Cartoon • Criticism • Care”, with world renowned cartoonists as jury, resulted in this exhibition, where the best cartoons are displayed.
