Exhibition

Impressions of the Great War, or history in comic books

From September 20th 2014 to January 18th 2015

WATTRELOS, France

The 1914-1918 War was a major inspiration for writers of comic books such as Hugo Pratt, Vandermeulen, Battalia, Gibrat, Boucq, Servais and others. During the conflict itself, Bécassine and the Pieds Nickelés, published in magazines of the period, did not escape the wave of propagandist writings. And then there was Tardi which marked a turning point in comic books and remains to this day unequalled in letting the ordinary soldier have his frankly antimilitarist say. MAT POP and Bulles Carrées present a panorarama of 60 thematically arranged displays created using comic book illustrations (animals called up to fight, women during the war...) along with a reconstruction of a kitchen of the period, a classroom, a first-aid post and more. Part of the "LIFE IN 14-18" programme of the Proscitec network.

The music of the guns

From October 31st 2014 to January 31st 2015

Hazebrouck, France

During the Great War the main activities of the soldiers between battles were singing, dancing and making music.

The exshibition takes the visitor into the world of these men and their music which served as an antidote to the war.
