In the age of social media, satirical cartoons may seem relics of another era, but in Spain they can be also an exploration of the past and its influence upon the present. Renowned cartoonist Carlos Gimenez’s comics shed light on little-known aspects in the history of a country still struggling to come to terms with its traumatic past. Their contemporary resonance is ever stronger, in a time that is seeing the resurgence of fascist ideologies all over the world.
