Machines à Bulles

« Machines à Bulles » is an interactive exhibition to explore innovative French digital comics. All the artworks are interactive, but can be viewed in different ways:


The Digital allows to blur the lines between all disciplines and to rethink the relationship between authors and readers. These new types of narratives and ways of reading open to new literary creation opportunities and change the relationship to the book, the paper format and the digital “machines”. France is the creative birthplace of comics and stands out on the international stage as a dynamic and imaginative figure and for the quality of its productions. Many French scriptwriters, artists, publishers and producers are now embracing new technologies and working towards producing novel creations. From paper to screen, the comic creators keep experimenting with new types of stories, while playing with the codes of sequential narrative. Through the “Machines à Bulles” exhibition, the Institut Français presents a selection of works that will illustrate what these typically French, new reading experiences are like.
