Behind the Lines 2016: The year’s best political cartoons

Behind the Lines 2016: The year's best political cartoons celebrates the role of political cartoonists in Australia and highlights the power that their drawings have in contributing to our daily political and social discourse.

Explore the unpredictable events of 2016 that shaped our political destiny - from Australia's own double-dissolution, to Brexit and the shock Trump victory - through the sharpened wit and pencils of Australia's best cartoonists.

There's more than cartoons. Dress up in a crown and velvety red cape in the exhibition programming space, discover your political destiny with a game of political tarot or challenge your friends and family in political head.
