In partnership with Cartooning for Peace, once a week ARTE is publishing a press cartoon on events unfolding in the Arab world by illustrators involved in the various countries, but also by western cartoonists. This week: the Algerian Dilem.

Ali Dilem began his career as a cartoonist with the daily Le Jeune Indépendant in 1990 then joined Le Matin in 1991 and La Liberté in 1996. He also works for the French programme Kiosque on TV5. The cartoonist is known for his outspokenness against the Bouteflika regime, cartoons which have earned him no fewer than sixty trials. On October 11 2010, Dilem was made a Chevalier of Arts and Letters after receiving a score of international awards, including the International Press Cartoon Prize in 2000.blog comments powered by Disqus
