Powerful pencil strokes! Political satire cartoonsPowerful pencil strokes! Political satire cartoons

While visiting the Library’s ground floor and basement, take the time to admire caricatures and comic strips taken from original sources belonging to the Library’s various collections.

This selection of satirical cartoons depicts more than 150 years of political and artistic life in Québec. As you browse, you will discover artists who, with a few pencil strokes, captured, condemned and even comically or mockingly expressed clear-cut opinions on the current events of their time.

The exhibition brochure summarizes the history of satirical cartoons in Québec, presents the best-known cartoonists and highlights the key publications that have marked Québec since the 19th century.

The exhibition runs from October 10, 2017 to September 28, 2018.

Many women and men have been elected over the years to represent the population of Québec in the National Assembly, and have carried out the varied and demanding duties inherent in their role as MNAs. Public communication is an essential part of their life, from the moment they decide to run for office and on a daily basis once elected. The Histoires de députés exhibition reveals little-known aspects of the unique world of MNAs.
