Right-wing populists in Europe are employing sophisticated strategies to convince their voters of their cause and the political caricatures they produce can be seen as one of these strategies. This study seeks to analyse the cartoons appearing in Neue Freie Zeitung, a newspaper published by the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), focusing both on their thematic spectrum and composition. Accordingly, one of the constitutive features of these caricatures is how they highlight the differences in opinion toward political opponents and between outside cultures and the party’s own culture. There are also concrete examples of how the differences are specifically used journalistically and artistically to communicate the party’s own political message.
