ENCYCLOPEDIC CARTOONS. The project’s idea is based on the structure of the reference book encyclopedia. This knowledge pool was created in the 18th century as a part of the Enlightenment. A variety of articles referring to different items should enable a deeper understanding of the world. Nowadays, knowledge concepts are developed by science and are subjected to a constant revision. It has become an utopia to provide a reference book for larger contexts of the mechanisms of the world. The Encyclopedic Cartoons Video Project presents an item for every letter of the alphabet – and a film to every item.
