Children in War

Children in War

The Norwegian Cartoonist Gallery presents the exhibition «Children in War» to focus on the suffering of children in war- and conflict areas. Through media we are witnesses to children´s situations in Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Gaza and Yemen among other places. We see children as refugees, terrified, wounded and murdered. They have lost their safety, their homes, schools and are even taken as hostages and soldiers. The exhibition is produced in cooperation with the cartoonists Fadi Abou Hassan from Syria and Arifur Rahman from Bangladesh. They both live in Norway as political refugees under the protection of ICORN and Norwegian PEN. We are deeply grateful to all participating cartoonists from 51 different countries. Their positive response and high quality of cartooning have made this exhibition possible.
With compliments,
Fadi Abou Hassan
Arifur Rahman
Vigdis Wolden
