Immerse yourself in the world of the Belgian pioneer of animated film Raoul Servais, thanks to his drawings, background props and even the instruments he used to make his films. This exhibition sheds light on Servais as an individual, his artistic process and search for new techniques, but also his love for the arts, surrealism, the work of Paul Delvaux and many more things. You will also be able to admire the sketches from his latest film, created in collaboration with Rudy Pinceel: Der lange Kerl.
François Schuiten, one of our most renowned comic strip artists, is curating the exhibition. He was Servais' main assistant during the making of Taxandria (1994). As supervisor of the graphic concept and the film's sets, Schuiten knows the world of Taxandria and the work of Raoul Servais like no other.
The exhibition Raoul Servais. A world between magic and realism is organised by the Heritage Fund of the King Baudouin Foundation in collaboration with the Raoul Servais Collection, the Raoul Servais Association and CINEMATEK. In partnership with La Libre, DH and The Brussels Times.
