22nd Euro-kartoenale: The Wall

In 2019 it is exactly 30 years ago that the Berlin Wall fell. Today we see new boundary walls erected all over the world. This inspired us to the theme for this 22nd edition of the Euro-kartoenale Kruishoutem: ‘The Wall - in all its forms’.


For this edition, no less than 985 cartoonists from 87 countries (an absolute record) sent in 2750 cartoons. Boundary walls, prisons, walls between people… all these themes inspired the participants.

You find the list of participants and the selection for the exhibition and catalog on our site.
