MOHA Research Centre and the newspaper “Kathimerini” present the exhibition “Caricatures” at the Mohammed Ali’s Museum. A selected series of sketches by the caricaturists Dimitris Hantzopoulos, Andreas Petroulakis and Ilias Makris are displayed and comment on current topics. The opening of the exhibition took place on Saturday, 21 January 2023, in the presence of the caricaturists and journalists of “Kathimerini” newspaper. The exhibition will be on display until 4 March 2023.
In the printed and digital edition of “Kathimerini”, the sketches of the three caricaturists always gain the interest and preference of the readers. For years, the three of them have been offering laughter and satire in a harsh and complicated reality. Their compositions, beyond humour and political commentary, have a multi-layered reading and artistic interest; they are paintings in miniature.
Visiting schedule: daily, except Tuesday and Wednesday, 10:00 – 14:00.
