Comic and migration exhibition “Sortir des Cases” – From 21 May to 23 June
Conceived by the National Museum of the History of Immigration, “Sortir des Cases” highlights the way in which comics have gradually become a privileged means of telling the story of migration and its challenges, leaving much to personal stories and family stories. By combining works from all eras, from the beginning of comics to the most recent creation, it questions the development of representations of the foreigner, the immigrant and migration in connection with the mentalities.
