The city occupies an important place in Marc Sleen's oeuvre. His native city of Ghent, but also Antwerp and Brussels often form the background for the adventures of Nero and co.

In the temporary exhibition The City Talks, original work by Marc Sleen can be viewed alongside fragments from stories by a new generation of comic book makers such as Judith Van Istendael, Guy Delisle, Joost Swarte, Aimée de Jongh and Tardi.

They portray a city they love, in their own style, one day more than the next. They live there or they are attracted to it. She is a childhood sweetheart or a complex affair. It is exotic and inscrutable or familiar and at home. Or all at once.

An exhibition from the Marc Sleen Association for the occasion of the anniversary of 100 years since Marc Sleen was born and 75 years since his most famous comic strip Nero first appeared.
