Hans Moser

Hans Moser

Neuhausen, 1922 - 2012.
Born in Switzerland, he grew up in the United States and returned to Switzerland in 1966. For decades he created humorous cartoons for the satirical magazine Nebelspalter, also as a columnist. At the center of his drawings is the defense of the environment and animals, a theme that he presents to the reader in an acute and critical way. And which earned him, in 1990, the Binding Recognition Gift, a prize awarded for a special commitment to nature and the environment. It is just one of the many awards he receives for his activity as a cartoonist and caricaturist: Tolentino, Turin, Bordighera, Skopje have paid homage to him.
And the municipality of Laax honored him with a path that today bears his name, the Senda Hans Moser.

Salone Internazionale dell'Umorismo

The event could not have lasted for over fifty years without the contribution of numerous "volunteers" and "precepts" who brought enthusiasm and desire to do whatever the task received, with nineteenth-century shifts! From the choice of the drawings, to the preparation of the panels (always the same every year), to the posting with various pins of the hundreds of drawings up to the presence on stage.

We therefore want to thank, in absolutely no order but with equal contributions, all those who come to mind, apologizing if we miss some, but we are ready to fix it!
