Bulles aux éclats (Bursting with bubbles)

Exposition en plein air à travers la ville
From 17.06.2024 to 21.09.2024
During the whole summer, BDFIL continues to celebrate comic strips by offering an exploration of humour. From June 17 to September 21, this open-air exhibition across the city, from the Cathedral to Ouchy, will form a walk composed of 10 chapters, leading you on a discovery of the many aspects this theme takes on in comic strips.

What makes someone burst out with laughter when they read a comic strip? Is it the character slipping on a banana skin? The depiction of a fart? Or is it a more committed humour, such as one that speaks out against injustice? Does laughter always come from the same sources? How do comic strips evolve as they come into contact with humour? What genres have been developed? How is humour used in this medium today? In short, what is humour made of? To answer these questions, BDFIL is organising an open-air summer exhibition.

By strolling through the city from the Cathedral Esplanade to Ouchy, the public will learn more about the codes of laughter and jokes. It will also be an opportunity to observe the various social and political aspects of humour. Each panel will include an insert for children and a summary in FALC (easy-to-read and understand French), as well as an English translation available on the BDFIL website.

In a sometimes serious, sometimes mischievous tone, the exhibition promises many surprises!
