A cartoonish Corona artwork by Stephan Rürup now guides visitors through the Museum of Comic Art. This was designed for the return from the Corona break. The hygiene concept is also presented in the Caricatura just a little differently than elsewhere - artistically thoughtful, colorful and humorous. The focus is on the heraldic animal of the charming museum: the moose! There is a special reason for this: "The harshest critics of moose used to be moose themselves!" (F.W. Bernstein). Moose instruct proper hand disinfection, "Please don't splash, drink, or shower in it Trump-style." But they also point out virus-containing behavior in the museum with the necessary cues for a relaxed museum visit such as mandatory masks and keeping the minimum distance. Besides, like a dog in retail, the virus unfortunately has to stay outside. So it's really fun to stick to the hygiene and distance measures.
A colorful one-way system guides visitors through the ongoing exhibitions: "Best Best Pictures - The Cartoons of the Decade", which we had told you about HERE. Also through the permanent exhibition of the "Draughtsmen of the New Frankfurt School" and the special exhibition "This can be cheerful! The Postcard Connection of the Rendsburg Drawers from 1990 to the Present", before the guests leave the gates of the humorous halls again. The Caricatura Museum was the only museum in the world to design the guidance system with the illustrator Stephan Rürup (Titanic, Welt am Sonntag and others). A stroke of luck: the artist had corona-related time.
In the social networks can currently both cartoons of the last decade of the cartoonists examined, as well as over the summer to follow the series "3 questions to humorous people". Here, the participants of the exhibition answer in writing, picture or video and make apparent which was their highlight of the past ten years - and why not the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States.
A look into the autumn shows: It remains cartoonish: From 1 October, the Caricatura Museum shows the temporary exhibition "Hauck & Bauer: Cartoons". The exhibition runs until March 7, 2021.
