Mondes (im)parfaits

Mondes (im)parfaits is an exhibition around the Obscure Cities in Maison d’Ailleurs in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland) 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 has designed the announcement poster of the Mondes (im)parfaits exhibition based on a new image.


The exhibition

About 16 original pages of Les Cités Obscures stories will be on display, together with the fresco of the Vaudois artist Sébastien Mettraux and the drawings of the young artist Louis Loup Collet.

The vernissage

The opening of the exhibition will be on Saturday November 16, 2019 at 17 hours.

The book

With the exhibition a book will be published by Les Impressions Nouvelles in corporation with Maison d’Ailleurs. The book will have 128 pages (24 x 32 cm). It is not just a catalog of the exhibition but it is more an extention to the exhibition. The book has a story on both utopia as dystopia, a long interview with François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters and rare and unpublished artwork by Schuiten 2). The book is available in bookstores on November 7, 2019.
