Angoulème: "L'Arabe du futur, œuvre-monde" exhibition

The exhibition, entitled 'L'Arabe du futur, œuvre-monde' (The Arab of the future, a work of the world), is presented in Angoulême and focuses on the six-volume series 'L'Arabe du futur' (The Arab of the future) by Riad Sattouf, to coincide with the comics festival. This autobiographical series recounts Sattouf's childhood in Syria and Brittany, offering a glimpse into the complex relationship between the East and the West.

Journalist Caroline Broué's conception of the exhibition is based on a multidisciplinary approach, with contributions from a variety of specialists and artists, such as novelist Leïla Slimani and actor Vincent Lacoste, providing diverse perspectives on Sattouf's work. The exhibition itself is an immersion into the spirit of the times and the world of Sattouf, with a reconstruction of his teenage bedroom, personal documents, photos and works that influenced him.
