ODDYSEY, to the origins of Blake and Mortimer

Temporary events

ODYSSEY is an exhibition that places the heritage work of Blake and Mortimer in its aesthetic, cultural and historical context with the purpose to be (re)discovered by the public in all its facets. Six themes run throughout the exhibition: Under the auspices of the Gods, A Modern Homer, The world, a theatre, The Ray of Death, Terra Incognita and The Eternal Return. 

While walking by the original panels and documents, of course by E.P. Jacobs, but as well created by Etienne Schréder and Christian Cailleux, you discover how the famous album “The U Ray” is one of the missing links between American comics and the Franco-Belgian comic album.
