This evening, just after the EESC plenary session had closed, we raced back to our Jacques Delors headquarters building for the launching of an exhibition of the work of Polish satirical artist Pawel Kuczynski, organised jointly by the European Economic and Social Committee, the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Poland to the EU and the Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art in Warsaw. There are many of his works on display. Most deal with the human condition, using metaphors and black humour to make sharp comments about politics, the environment and the built world. For the record, the illustration for this post is my Vice-President’s favourite.
