Satirists Focus on Hungary

Caricaturists descended on Biskupin in north-central Poland Aug. 2-9 to produce satirical pieces inspired by the theme "Poles and Hungarians: Brothers Under the Skin."

The get-together resulted in an exhibition of several dozen satirical pieces loosely based on Hungarian motifs. Hungarians are seen with a glass and saber in hand, using "paprika toothpaste" and riding a stallion-shaped cask of wine. The exhibition will be open until the end of October.

During the exhibition opening, the Association of Polish Cartoonists (SPAK) awarded the Eryk Statuette to the Archeological Museum in Biskupin-a town famous for its archeological remains-for organizing satirical drawing exhibitions. The statuette was handed to the museum director, Wiesław Zaj±czkowski.

"Poles and Hungarians: Brothers Under the Skin" is the motto of the 15th Archeological Fair in Biskupin. The annual event, which this year focuses on Hungarian culture, takes place Sept. 19-27.
