IVF Project 2020
The international cartoons competition "Brain Sneezing - from kalokagathia to hypochondria and back" is in the years 2023 - 2024 financially supported by the International Visegrad Fund. The topic of the Antihybrid competition is hybrid threats that are linked to the manipulation of public opinion, disinformation and limitation of freedom of thinking. Hybrid threats enhance populism and totalitarian power that suppresses democracy and human rights. Cartoons diagnose the causes of hybrid wars, reflect arrogance and motivate the viewers to overcome fear and ignorance.
