Mondes (im)parfaits

Mondes (im)parfaits is an exhibition around the Obscure Cities in Maison d’Ailleurs from November 17, 2019 until October 23, 2020.

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.
