Comic Art Exhibition: Un Monde sans Fin

Exploring Energy Challenges through Comic Art

We are thrilled to present the exhibition "Un monde sans fin" (World Without End), which is an adaptation of an eco-conscious comic book addressing the challenges faced by our contemporary world. You can find this exhibition on the third floor of CSpace throughout April.


It represents a collaboration between the acclaimed comic book author Christophe Blain and Jean-Marc Jancovici, an expert in energy and ecological matters. The exhibition's content is in French with English translations.


This exhibition delves into the themes of energy and climate change, while also exploring economic, ecological, and social issues. Through detailed and illustrative explanations, it aims to educate visitors about these significant challenges. Attendees are encouraged to engage with contentious topics, particularly those related to the energy transition. For those interested in further exploring these themes, the comic book is available at our library.

Jean-Marc Jancovici is a French engineer, teacher, and lecturer. He is also the inventor of the carbon footprint. He is mainly known for his awareness-raising and popularization campaign on the topics of climate change and energy. Committed to fighting climate change, particularly in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, he advocates for carbon taxation and civilian nuclear energy production. According to him, the model of Western societies is destined for decline because their economic system, dependent on energy primarily from fossil fuels, is not sustainable.

Christophe Blain is a French illustrator primarily known for the comic books "Quai d'Orsay" and "Un monde sans fin." He has had several collaborations throughout his career, but the one that interests us today is the one he did with Jean-Marc Jancovici. Christophe Blain has won the Best Album award at the Angoulême Festival twice. He won it in 2002 for "Les Amériques" (the first volume of "Isaac le pirate") and in 2013 for "Chroniques diplomatiques" (the second volume of "Quai d'Orsay").
