The exhibitions at the Cartoonmuseum Basel are complemented by workshops, guided tours as well as talks and presentations, all focusing on current issues and shed light on the artists’ social and historical context. We often invite the exhibiting artists or other cartoonists and caricaturists to talk about their current projects and engage in a conversation with the visitors.

Wednesday morning talks

The “Wednesday morning talks” focus on current issues or on the social and historical context of a particular exhibition or artist. We often invite the exhibiting artists or other cartoonists and caricaturists.
