There was once, a very long time ago, a man who could neither read nor write.

Moreover, the words “read” and “write” did not even exist, any more than any other words. He invented drawing to express himself, to tell stories and to worship.

How did what we now call “comic strip” come about, and how do we describe it? The aim of this exhibition, which spans the history of the world and civilisations, is to answer these questions.
