Exhibition "Dessiner la Paix"

The Centre d’Interprétation d’Architecture et du Patrimoine (CIAP) (Centre of Architecture and Heritage Interpretation) is hosting the "Dessiner la Paix" (Drawing Peace) from 25th May to 6th January, 2019. The "Dessiner la Paix" exhibition is an interactive and progressive exhibition which covers the commemoration of the Great War's centenary.



Running to 6th January, 2019 you can take part in this evolutionary and interactive exhibition based around the theme of Peace, at the Centre d’Interprétation d’Architecture et du Patrimoine at the Amiens city Tourist Office. The exhibits, created between 1954 and 2013, harness the caricature, metaphor, conflict, and provocation that this symbol brings about. They attempt to exploit the fragility and boundaries that characterize Peace, from yesteryear until now.


Echoing the armistice of 11th November 1918, which called for the end of a war that was believed to be the last, Amiens provides the last piece to the puzzle in commemorating the First World War’s centenary. In this exclusive setting, specially designed for the exhibition, you will also have the opportunity to appreciate a collection from the Musée de la Caricature de Krems (Austria) which includes 30 drawings dating from 1919 to 2018, accompanied by works produced by the students of the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design. What's more, a final part of this installation focuses on the first international comic book plates for "Traces de la Grande Guerre" ("Traces of the Great War"), an unpublished collective work dedicated to the end of the fighting and a return to peace in our country.


The exhibition, presented by Amiens' Culture and Heritage department and the Austrian Cultural Forum, designed by Alexandra Maringer, has been created in partnership with the Musée de la Caricature de Krems in Austria, the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design in Amiens and the association, On a Marché sur la Bulle.
