Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Es steht geschrieben, Bockelson als Kaiser, ca. 1946, Sammlung Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel CDN/Schweizerische Eidgenossenschaft

The caricature is the most frequently used theme in Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s graphic work. For Dürrenmatt (1921-1990), caricature was a weapon of the human spirit with which he denounced the abuses in society and politics.

The exhibition (Karikaturen/Caricatures)presents the whole range of his caricatures, from his illustrations for plays to his satirical drawings of theatre critics and his caricatures of religion and politics. The exhibition also explores his great interest in other caricaturists.
