The 1971 organizing committee, under the patronage of the former President of the Socialist Republic of Slovenia, wrote:
"We are meeting again in order to tell one another - without words, but with some laughing and a bit of moist in the eyes - a thousand stories. The cartoon has virtually no limitations, and a tiny bit of its freedom is caught in our present Biennale...
... It is not rewarding to heap up words about an exhibition WITH NO COMMENT. Let it be so that the words will be searched for and found by those who will visit the Biennale and, we hope, say: "It was pleasant to keep silent with them."
Browsing through this catalogue with excellent cartoons, I recognized the work of some other great cartoonists:
Claude Serre, France:
Miroslav Bartak, Czech Republic:
Oto Reisinger ,Slovenia:
and many other gag cartoons...
