Voyages en utopie

Voyages en utopie is a book by Benoît Peeters and François Schuiten, with photos by Marie-Françoise Plissart. The books is published in 2000 by Casterman.

Parallel to the comic books of the “Cités obscures”, François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters have been developing three-dimensional projects for a dozen years: exhibitions-shows, scenographies, architectural elements … Some of these works have had a wide impact as “The Museum of Shadows” or the metro station “Arts and Crafts”. Others are more discreet, like “the Mundaneum” in Mons or “Les Inattendus” of Maubeuge. Some have never even gone beyond the project stage, such as “Channel Travel”, “All World Directories” or the Groningen Comic Museum.
