An exhibition “in dialogue”
17.11.2019 – 25.10.2020
The richness of the exhibition “(Im)perfect Worlds” is to foster different dialogues: utopia converses with dystopia and society; comic, graphic and digital art converse with the museum’s collection; the original works of Schuiten and Peeters inspire the creativity of Sébastien Mettraux as well as the engineers of the HEIG-VD; the city of Lausanne is at the heart of Louis Loup Collet’s sensitivity; and the luminous Valais turns dark under Thomas Crausaz’ stylus.
These dialogues – and all those that the visitors will establish by themselves – are typical of conjectural narratives, particularly utopias and dystopias. These stories are indeed not to be considered as projects (of society) or warnings, but as mirrors reflecting our problems, our divagations, our failures. Now, without such mirrors, it would be more difficult to distance oneself from reality or from ourselves; it is therefore for reflection that the Maison d’Ailleurs extends this invitation.
