Mu­se­ums­nacht 2024: It's All About Love

19 January 2024 - 20 January 2024 | 6.00 PM - 2.00 AM

Blutchs aktuellster Comic «La mer à boire» ist eine surrealistische Reise ins Innere und eine vielschichtige Suche nach Glück und Liebe. Die lange Nacht widmet sich diesem grossen Thema mit Speed-Dating, Workshops, Livezeichnen und Musik, die unter die Haut geht. Und natürlich mit den legendären Crêpes de Nancy und verführerischen Drinks.

The Cartoonmuseum Basel is the only museum of its kind devoted exclusively to satirical art – from the caricature to the comic. The Late Gothic building on its historic site also includes an unexpected new building by Herzog & de Meuron. Varying, attractively designed exhibitions on political and social themes show the considerable scope of the humorous drawing and the great diversity of artistic techniques. Equal attention is paid to both classical works, some from the museum’s own stocks, and contemporary works.
