Tintin, the immersive adventure
27 September, 2023 @ 10:00 - 7 January, 2024 @ 19:00€12 – €15
In the autumn of 2023, an unprecedented exhibition devoted to the most famous Belgian comic strip characters will be held at Tour & Taxis, Brussels: “Tintin, the immersive adventure”. Extending over a 1,600 m2 projection surface, the digital exhibition will enable children and adults to immerse themselves in the world of Tintin. The fruit of a close collaboration between Culturespaces and Tintinimaginatio, the event was a huge success in Paris in 2022.
The transfer from paper to digital is but a short step, which the two partners decided to take by combining their expertise. Tintinimaginatio, the exclusive holder of the world rights for the exploitation and representation of Hergé’s work, is collaborating with Culturespaces, a pioneer in the production of immersive exhibitions that are unique in the world.
From the first edition of Tintin in the Land of the Soviets in 1929 to the most recent publications, “Tintin : the Immersive Adventure” pays tribute to the famous reporter with the powder puff, an inveterate traveller whose voyages around the globe have been part of popular culture for almost one hundred years. A unique interpretation of Hergé’s work, this immersive exhibition enables both young people and adults, “from 7 to 77”, to (re)explore the creative and fictional world of one of the twentieth- century’s greatest cartoonists.
The entire “paper family” of the famous saga is present in the exhibition: Tintin and Snowy (Milou), as well as the faithful “family” made up by Captain Haddock, the Thompson Twins, Professor Sunflower, Castafiore, and many others. Not to mention, of course, the disagreeable—but truly indispensable—villains.
Visit the Tour & Taxis site from 27 September 2023 to discover this colourful aesthetic experience.
