We are joining forces with The Cartoon Movement to explore perspectives on the upcoming European elections through comics and cartoons. Between 31 March and 25 May 2014, we are inviting comic artists and cartoonists to reflect on European citizenship and the various issues that are currently facing Europe. Everyone is welcome to submit their work. We are selecting one cartoon or comic every week to showcase on our respective websites.
Our third selected work is European Exports by Rainer Ehrt.
