Kamagurka makes best Dutch political drawing | Art & Literature
The winning print is about the refugee crisis and the corona measures, which, according to the jury, have been “combined in a simple but clear and comic way”. “Where we here in Europe worry about how we can go on holiday to which country and what conditions we have to meet, all in an effort to get back to the old normal as soon as possible, are at the external borders of our continent of refugees and are expected to meet the same requirements. Everything in one simple drawing that is immediately recognizable in style. Cynical, ironic, confrontational and yet funny”, the jury report reads.
A total of five drawings were nominated. The Inktspot Prize was awarded today in Nieuwspoort in The Hague. The jury consisted of comedian and photographer Owen Schumacher, journalist and documentary maker Sinan Can, journalist and editor-in-chief Şenay Özdemir, illustrator Sylvia Weve and professor of Dutch language and literature Lotte Jensen.
