Many of the essential elements of life are invisible. Love, faith, fear, the sense of belonging to a place or a community. 

But how can the invisible be made visible? How can storytellers and illustrators turn all this into images?

Starting from these questions, a group of young artists selected by the jury of Invisible Lines, a project co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union, embarked on a summer-long journey in search of answers. 

They hiked through the woods of the Sudetes region, in the Czech Republic, to observe the mutations of the landscape and their effects on the communities who have lived there for generations; they walked the streets of Venice in search of small daily epiphanies; and they met with the refugees currently living at the Bernanos centre in Strasbourg.

They did not do all this alone, but under the guidance of three great artists: Juraj Horvàth, Stefano Ricci, and Yvan Alagbé. 

This exhibition tells about their journey, and the stories it generated. It is a reflection on the invisible and all the forms in which we encounter it in our lives, and a celebration of art making as collective act.
But it is also a glimpse of the new voices of European comics, a way to take a look at what is to come.

Invisible Lines is an international project on comics, graphic novel and illustration developed by Fondazione Giorgio Cini, (Italy - coordinator); Central Vapeur, (France); Hamelin APS (Italy); Baobab&Gplusg s.r.o. (Czech Republic), and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

This exhibition was made with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

In collaboration with Institut Français Italia, Flanders Literature, Czech Literary Centre, Goethe-Institut Roma, Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna.

In partnership con Gruppo Hera.
