World of Tintin: Bringing Intrepid Belgian Boy Reporter to Life
Why We Recommend it
The largest presentation in Hong Kong to date showcases eight albums from Belgian illustrator Hergé’s “The Adventures of Tintin”.
Created in 1929, the Tintin adventures have been translated into over 100 languages and sold more than 230 million copies worldwide.
Each thematic section of the free exhibition, organised by the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Foundation in collaboration with the Hergé Museum, has been designed to bring the intrepid boy reporter to life. “The world of Tintin” traces Hergé’s path from his first stories to his mature works, following Tintin as he crosses continents between North America, Africa, Asia, Europe and beyond.
Ushering a new dimension in comic strips, the Tintin series has since been recognized as an important work of art that reflects the changing perspectives of its audience throughout the 1900s.
