Exhibitions on comics are not numerous and relations between author-creators from different countries, even less so. So the one proposed by the Centre de Wallonie-Bruxelles deserves a little attention. The exhibition questions the heritage heritage of the classic "Franco-Belgian" comic strip in contemporary French-speaking European comics, through more than a hundred original plates and reproductions. Belgium, France and Switzerland have long interacted in a creative abundance that transcends borders. The latter, often referred to as "La bande dessinée franco-belge", is sometimes reduced in its definitions to the memory of its Golden Age. The latter existed and saw the birth of many talents, leading figures and major works. However, the contemporary reality of French-speaking European comics cannot be reduced to this definition. How do authors and authors in the three countries work together? How does the new generation of creators relate to its predecessors and historical masters? How do authors invent new formats to deliver their stories? The exhibition questions this filiation and transmission. It allows us to meet the protagonists of this history in the process of being made, to visit territories, to measure its influence, and underlines the abundance and modernity of the French-speaking European comic strip today. It should also be noted that the exhibition was produced by Lyon BD, with the support of Pro Helvetia, Wallonie-Bruxelles International, Le Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles in Paris, and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region.
