Politically Incorrect Comics

As the title, Black and White: Politically Incorrect Comics and Animation suggests, black and white are the most conspicuous colors at the latest exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. Not just the works but the entire layout of this exhibition feature these two colors.

The exhibition features animated films and comics with socio-political comment. What we see here is biting commentary that is often forceful, exaggerated, vulgar, obscene and provocative.

The exhibition features works by artists associated with political subculture comics, animation and caricature (Robert Crumb, William Kentridge, Dan Perjovschi), and classical Polish political comics (Marek Raczkowski, Krzysztof Owendyk, Krzysztof Ostrowski). Political themes are also evident in works from South America (Blu), Russia (Victoria Lomasko), Israel (Aya Ben Ron, Yael Bartana) and Turkey (Extrastruggle).
