Savage Ink: The Cartoon & The Caricature at People’s History Museum (PHM), City Centre, 16 September 2017–13 May 2018, free entry - Visit now

Ever since the satirical cartoon’s rise to popularity in the late 18th century, cartoonists have used humour and caricature to attack and criticise those in power.  Savage Ink looks at the development of the cartoon as an important form of visual protest and its often cruel and controversial imagery.  The exhibition charts the cartoon from its pioneers and innovators, right through to those artists currently working in graphic novels, comic books and newspapers who are keeping the tradition of pictorial satire alive.
