Online presentation

The Satirical Magazine “Charlie Hebdo” online

You can access the online presentation including drawings, text and background material on the French satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” at www.museen-fuer-satire.com. This project is a collaboration between the four major cartoon and caricature institutions in the German-speaking countries. The presentation is a reaction to the media coverage, debates about freedom of press, artistic expression and speech, and the numerous enquiries the institutions involved in the project received after the attack on the French satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” in Paris on 7 January 2015. The magazine and the cartoonists killed in the attack are not very well known in the German-speaking world, so there is a considerable need for information. Appreciating caricature requires knowledge and an understanding of context. To provide this is one of a museum’s most important tasks. This project hopes to heighten awareness of the values of freedom of speech and artistic expression that are anchors of Western society. For the media, a press release and images are available in the media section of our website.
