10th International Biennial for Caricature: Masters of Caricature, Plovdiv 2019, Bulgaria

SUBJECT: The Pig and the Culture
The pig is one of the first animals ever to be domesticated by mankind. It may therefore be a model to emulate or negate For some, the pig is a symbol of the rising sun, for others – a symbol of the Satan, lust or insensible hunger. In some cultures it symbolizes wealth and good fortune.
Is it possible for the contemporary cartoonist to portray the numerous conceptions, concerning the odd pair – Pig and Culture?
On one hand, Bulgarian traditional beliefs see the pig as a filthy animal and as such, it can cannot be used as a sacrifice. On the other hand, it is considered as untouchable to the influences of unclean spirits.
Nowadays the word pig is used as an appellative for moral impurity as well as a sign of good health and fertility, reaffirming the controversial image of this animal.
Should the terms pig and culture be considered as opposites? Does the pig ’s image allow a wide interpretation in a cultural context? The pig, does it have a hidden dignity?
In this Biennial, we will see how cartoonists will draw the shades of the pig and the culture. Whether old wisdom will interweave with new mores and what will come out from it remains to be seen.
Address for submission:
Regional Ethnographic Museum – Plovdiv 
2 Dr. Stoyan Chomakov str.
