Behind the Lines
The National Cartoon Gallery is delighted to once again be hosting the travelling exhibition Behind the Lines developed and presented by the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House.
Each year the Behind the Lines exhibition features a broad selection of political cartoons from around Australia, providing an insight into the year in Australian politics. The main theme for 2021 was Prophecy & Chance inspired by our need to know what the future holds in these times of uncertainty and the unexpected. The exhibition features 105 political cartoons by 38 of Australia’s best political cartoonists
