The exhibition includes about 150 Bulgarian cartoons from the collection of the National Art Gallery. It will be on show at the Museum of Socialist Art in Sofia from 2 November to 31 March. Among the artists represented are Ilia Beshkov, Alexander Zhendov, Boris Angelushev, Stoyan Venev, Boris Dimovski, Donyo Donev and others.
