XXII PortoCartoon 2020



Cartoon: Hunger and Poverty, Reduce Inequalities

Special Caricature Awards : singer and writer Chico Buarque , Albert Eisntein


From 2020 on, PortoCartoon will tune its main theme with major UN concerns for the next decade.

The structuring themes of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will allow new humorous approaches.

For 2020 we chose SDGs 1, 2 and 10 for their thematic articulation: Eradicate Hunger and Poverty, Reduce Inequalities.

According to some statistics, half of the world's population is poor. Wealth is concentrated in very few people (82% of wealth is in the hands of 1%).

"Tax havens" remain a source of corruption and inequality. True (and curable) cancer of humanity!

Humor, as a rich instrument of democratic awareness, has a wide field of action in these times of greed, populism and fanaticism.

People deserve the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be the regulatory document of the societies. PortoCartoon wants to contribute to this.

Following the line started in 2013, with the introduction of the Special Caricature Award at PortoCartoon, two great personalities were chosen to honor in 2020: the singer and writer Chico Buarque (Camões Prize 2019); and the Nobel Prize in Physics Albert Einstein. This choice is justified by the museum with the note that, in 1920, a wide spread of its famous Theory of Relativity began in the world press.
