4th International Zagreb Car Caricature Honored Caricaturists (and all those who want to become one)
This years 4th International Zagreb car caricature exhibition 2010 marks the 112th anniversary of the car`s .rst appearance in Croatia. .e car was driven by Count Marko Bombelles to his home in Vinica near Varaždin.Since those early days, in all its guises, the car has becomean essential part of everyday life. “His Majesty”, the car, has become so necessary for work and play that it is di.cult to imagine any activity which does not involve the use of an automobile. From basic functions such as travelling to and from work, to every other type of economic, sport, cultural, political, recreational, tourist, health, military, police or “romantic” pursuit. It is omnipresent, ever desirable and IRREPLACEABLE! Life without a car is unimaginable. We ask ourselves how did<>we manage to live without the car for thousands of years.
With message and slogan of this years exhibition:
”WITH CAR INSPECTION YOU CONTRIBUTE IN PRESERVATION OF OUR ECOLOGY”
So our focus this year as well as a theme is going to be
CAR INSPECTION AND CAR VALIDATION CHECK.
With this theme we want to interest authors from around the world to warn public of a need to preserve nature. This is a fantastic opportunity for caricaturists from all around the world to “speak up” through their drawings and show advantages and disadvantages of their majesty – the Car.
