The coronavirus outbreak has paralyzed the world: an unprecedented stress test for the health system, enormous challenges for politics and society, resulting in unforeseeable effects on the economy. Can we manage this global challenge? Cartoonists from all over the world have asked themselves these questions. Their drawings and paintings in this illustrated book comment on current events, straight to the point and with a good dose of humor. The lockdown created funny behaviors: hoarding of toilet paper and DIY haircuts as well as video conferencing in sweatpants. Unfortunately, social isolation, fear of the future and economic losses due to short-time working are also part of our new everyday life. The crisis shows which professions are relevant for the economic system. Social imbalances and inequalities are becoming abundantly clear. At the same time, issues that demanded urgent action before the outbreak of the virus seem to be forgotten, like the refugee crisis, global warming and the world economic crisis. This cartoon book critically comments on the current situation and makes us rethink our priorities!

From Venice, Barcelona, and Los Angeles, to Brasilia, Istanbul, Cairo, Lagos, or Jarkarta, this book reveals an exhilarating marriage between space and sports in global cities. Born from a need to challenge boundaries and reclaim the right to the city, from a desire for self-expression and entertainment, urban sports reimagine the city as a playground.
