Volte-face : des visages sous les masques

Mar 17, 2023 - Jan 7, 2024
Yverdon-les-Bains - Exhibition

Exhibition at Maison d'Ailleurs

In the almost fifty years of its existence, the grand narrative induced by Star Wars has had a lasting influence on popular culture through cinema, television, comic books, video games and toys. Among the latter, Kenner's articulated action figures have left their mark on the modern history of the toy industry. With over 300 million sold worldwide, they are the envy of fans and collectors alike. Based on the museum's collections and those of private individuals, the exhibition "Volte-face: faces under masks" seeks to question these figurines which, masked, anonymous or heroic, offer an alternative face that allows each of us to freely embody ourselves, to singularize ourselves and, by the same token, to emancipate ourselves, even to perform an about-face.
