An exhibition of the Institut Français

Introduction by the curator: Walther Fekl

The exhibition "Tête à tête – Kopf an Kopf" deals with literature and literary men. The works of many well-known politically motivated caricaturists will be shown.

Besides some political cartoons there will be various illustrations of the four Frenchmen Honoré, Daniel Maja, Pancho and Nicolas Vial as well as of the three Germans Rainer Ehrt, Walter Hanel and Frank Hoppmann. Their works are focused on portraits and portrait caricatures ranging from Beckett to Voltaire and from Brecht to Zweig. Their creations are a visual homage to books and literature.

It is an exhibition that will make you think, laugh and wonder.
