Turkish cartoonist Osman Turhan displays his work in the exhibition. AA photoA joint exhibition interrogating the “future of the European Union” through works by the world’s most important cartoonists has been opened in the Italian city of Fabriano.
Turkey is being represented by Osman Turhan in the event. Turhan said the exhibition first went on display for three days at the La Pelanda-Centro di Produzione Culturale, which is a part of Rome’s famous Macro Contemporary Arts Museum.
“Now the exhibition is running at a historical museum in Fabriano, and I am representing Turkey with five cartoons. This event attempts to reveal the views of cartoonists on the European Union. With my works, I wanted to show that I am not hopeful about the future of the EU.
“At this point, I can say that the EU looks like an old and sick man that has no future. I show this fact in my works,” Turhan said.
The exhibition will be on display until Jan. 11, 2014, Turhan said.
