Discovery stand: curiosity for the work of art

Art objects, curious objects, everyday objects that have become rare, objects that reveal a period or a fashion.

Pedagogical area: become an expert for an hour

2021 GUEST OF HONOUR
The Cité internationale de la bande dessinée et de l’image is the result of a close partnership between the La Charente county council, the French Ministry of Culture, Angoulême city council and the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, which was able to create this unique public institution dedicated entirely to the "9th art" (comics).  The Cité includes a comics museum, a heritage library, a public library, a documentation centre, a renowned comic shop, an authors' residence (la Maison des Auteurs) and an Art & Essai [Art and Experimentation] cinema.
The Cité is spread over three spectacular buildings overlooking the river Charente, which flows alongside. The Cité is located at the heart of the image hub which was set up in the county. The Cité and the hub together bolster Angoulême's domestic and international reputation and confirm its status as the worldwide capital of Franco-Belgian comics
