Behind the Lines is a travelling annual exhibition developed by Museum of Australian Democracy​ at Old Parliament House Canberra. 

Each year the Behind the Lines exhibition features a broad selection of political cartoons from around Australia, providing an insight into the year in Australian politics and current affairs. This year’s Behind the Lines is swinging at the pinata, passing the parcel, and waiting for the music to stop because the theme is All Fun and Games

Cartoonists are popping on their party hats and breaking out the bunting while they take us on a journey through the year that was 2023.The exhibition is proudly supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.​
