Every year, the Krems Caricature Museum – a unique institution in Austria – brings thousands of visitors to the Wachau region. The permanent presentation "IMMER WIEDER DEIX!' looks back on the extraordinary work of Manfred Deix (1949 - 2016), the "enfant terrible" of the German cartoon scene,  and presents a colourful array of his wonderful ‘Deixfiguren’. At the same time, a selection of the best works of Erich Sokol (1933 - 2003) will be shown from March 25, 2018. Sokol is regarded as the pioneer of a new Austrian school in caricature and satire, but also in his supreme discipline, portrait caricature. His work has been acclaimed in prestigious magazines worldwide, including Harper’s Magazine, the Sunday Telegraph, Lyon’s Magazine and Playboy Magazine published by Hugh Hefner. The exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive educational programme.
