‘People who see a drawing in the New Yorker Will Automatically think thats it’s funny Because it’s a cartoon. They see it if in a museum, they’re think it’s artistic, if They find it in a fortune cookie They think it’s a prediction. ‘- Saul Steinberg

Now more than ever you can see anywhere in the world an art form consisting of images and text and, above all, humor. Today you see writers, cartoonists, graffiti artists, poets, songwriters, stage and film makers and artists around the world – in some cases, their main task – working with these elements. It is an accessible, contemporary form of communication, with a quick easy universal language, but as intimate as a sketch on a napkin. – Jesse Nathan
The exhibtion was located at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. This beautiful city park, with historic factory buildings surrounded by expanses of green, also has workplaces, venues for large and small events, and a broad range of catering, film, theatre and exhibition facilities.
