ATTENTION! The Karikaturmuseum Krems closes temporarily until May 12, 2017 due to reconstruction works. Reopening will take place on 13 May 2017. Karikaturmuseum Krems is the very unique museum for caricature, cartoons, comics and satire art in Austria. Founded in 2001, the architect and caricaturist Gustav Peichl / IRONIMUS planned the museum and enriches Krems with its exhibitions. There are also about 2-3 temporary exhibitions per year where artworks from popular international cartoonists are shown.

Caricatures by Austria's most renowned caricaturists, living and deceased. It goes without saying that you should know the persons made fun of to fully understand the implicit message of the respective sketch. Most foreigner's don't know even their name.

I have never come across Deix before but I found his work sharp and insightful. I only wish I was more fluent in German as a fair bit was lost in my translation. Some of his work is wicked but always fun. You cannot miss...More
