Cartoon exhibition at TIM

JAKARTA (JP): The Indonesian Cartoonist Association and the German-based Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung Foundation will put on a three-day cartoon exhibition beginning on Oct. 6 at the Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM) arts center in Central Jakarta.

The exhibition, titled The House of Representative and the People's Representation, will display cartoons which represent the public's perspective of the House.

These cartoons give some insight into the public's perception of the role and performance of the House, and whether the legislators, who were elected in a free and fair election last year, have fought for their constituents' interests.

The exhibition is aimed at providing the people an education in democracy through cartoons, and urging young people to become actively involved in the country's ongoing process of democratization.

The Bandung Apresiator Theater will perform during the exhibition's opening. (dja)
