“Palestine and Iraq in the Eyes of Kalvellido and Azagra.” That’s the title of a series of panel cartoons by Spanish artists Juan Kalvellido and Carlos Azagra, who have criticized, in their own way, that is to say by cartoons, the wars in Iraq and Palestine in recent years.
This exhibition, organized by the Haydée Santa María Association for Culture, Peace, and Solidarity, can now be viewed in the town hall of Fuenlabrada. In the exhibition, we can see Kalvellido’s and Azagra’s most representative cartoons about the wars in Palestine and Iraq. With these cartoons the artists wish to present critique, by turns sharp and tender, in order to move the spectator to solidarity, against the senseless violence sometimes displayed by human beings.
