Laughter—the Best Medicine?
December 19, 2013
A new exhibition at the Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art in Warsaw focuses on Poland’s ailing healthcare sector.
Caricaturist Andrzej Dziatlik is exhibiting an installation comprising 10 hospital beds, which form a humorous picture of all the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of healthcare in Poland. The installation is displayed along with health-related satirical drawings by some of Poland’s finest cartoonists, including Hanna “Ha-Ga” Gosławska, Zbigniew Lengren and Szymon Kobyliński.
In a separate exhibition, the museum is showing a range of satirical cartoons and caricatures dealing with social media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The exhibition, entitled Co się plecie w internecie? (Online Babbling), comes with a special multimedia presentation.
Until Jan. 26
Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art; 11 Kozia St., Warsaw
