Presentations
Clay Bennett is a political cartoonist who left Alabama for Massachusetts, only to find himself returning to his Southern roots by way of a move to Tennessee, and more specifically, Chattanooga. He tells his story in his presentation (from PKN Chattanooga Vol. 10), highlighting each part with a selection of his cartoons.

Eva Štybrava is the founder of a group of painters called the Saint Thomas Five. Her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) offers up a selection of their works, as well as revealing their process.
