MetadataShow full item record
Cartoon is a drawing, representation or symbol that makes a satirical, witty or humorous point. Though different types of cartoons may vary greatly from each other, the one common factor is humor & all the types some how influences & affects society & people in it in different ways. It is a sensible & creative art form. Historically, different cartoons had huge influences on politics, social thoughts/messages, entertainment issues & psychology of children & young generation. In Bangladesh, cartoon is not considered so & cartoonists are not given the proper recognition, as they should be given. As a result, instead of having some very talented cartoonists, Bangladesh is falling behind in many ways regarding this art form. So, a cartoon museum dedicated to preserving & exhibiting all sorts of cartoons, starting from pre-historic time to editorial, social, political, economic cartoons & modern day animated toons is neede in Bangladesh. An institution for cartoon studies in Bangladesh. Creating cartoonists & animators, with basic courses, studio work including workshops. Innovative exhibitions to make the past and present of the art form, accessible to all for the purposes of education, research and enjoyment. This paper describes the process I have gone through to design a museum & institution for cartoons & comic arts suitable for Bangladesh.
