Behind the lines


Every year MoAD presents Behind The Lines, an exhibition that captures the political year in cartoons.

It’s a celebration of our democracy and our freedom of speech. Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, our central theme for 2018 is Curiouser and Curiouser, reflecting a strange and unsettling year in politics.

Thursday 31 January – Wednesday 20 February
Open Box Office hours and one hour prior to performances.
