Wednesday morning talks

Will the caricature survive?

Wednesday, 27.11.2024,
10am–12pm

Gerhard Glück's lovingly humorous paintings have been appearing in major newspapers and magazines since the 1970s. This consistency runs counter to the trend of caricature being given less and less space in newspapers and magazines. The changes in journalism and society, from political correctness to cost pressure, challenge the everyday life of all caricaturists. Director and curator Anette Gehrig talks to caricaturist Silvan Wegmann about the challenges facing his profession today.
