Utopia is at the heart of our modernity; yet, throughout the twentieth century, fiction has given rise to many dystopias, totalitarian worlds apparently built on a utopia. This is why the Maison d'Ailleurs wishes to inspect the interdependence between utopia and dystopia by establishing a dialogue between the museum's heritage and the original works of François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters, the fresco of the Vaudois artist Sébastien Mettraux 1) and the drawings of the young artist Louis Loup Collet.
François Schuiten will design a new image for the announcement poster of this exhibition.
This page will be updated when more information will be released
With the exhibition a book will be published by Les Impressions Nouvelles in corporation with Maison d’Ailleurs. This book extends the exhibition and will have 128 pages (24 x 32 cm) and will contain rare and unpublished artwork by Schuiten.
