Hani Abbas

Syrian-Palestinian cartoonist Hani Abbas will be the on campus resident artist at the Centre des arts. Born in 1977 in the refugee camp of Yarmouk, near Damascus in Syria, Hani had to flee Syria after receiving threats for publishing politically sensitive cartoons. Seeking asylum and settling in Switzerland, he continues to denounce the atrocities of war through his cartoons. In May 2014, he was awarded the Editorial Cartoon International Prize by Kofi Annan. He is also part of Cartooning for Peace, an international network of committed press cartoonists who use humour to fight for the respect of cultures and freedom of expression. 
Hani Abbas will be on campus from 26 April to 20 May, and will hold his workshop on the second floor of the Centre des arts.

Momar Seck and Gilles Dusabe



This collective exhibition will showcase works by artists Momar Seck and Gilles Dusabe. Both teachers of visual arts at the International School of Geneva, their work reflects two rich and varied backgrounds.
Born in Senegal, Momar Seck has been rewarded numerous times for his creations, which reflect his Senegalese origins. With a Master in Plastic Arts from the Marc Bloch University in Strasbourg, Momar has often represented Senegal in exhibitions, both in Switzerland and abroad.
Gilles Dusabe is a Rwandan artist and his socially engaged works are strongly influenced by his life experience. Based between Kigali and Geneva, he mainly works with video, photography and installations. He has become one of the important figures of the new generation of Rwandan artists.

Solar Impulse: une exploration pour changer le monde

26th of April 2017 - 14h30

With the psychiatrist and explorer Dr. Bertrand Piccard: initiator and pilot of the first Round-The-World solar flight

Bertrand Piccard is the initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse, the very first airplane capable of flying perpetually without fuel. It is in his DNA to go beyond the obvious and achieve the impossible, as he did with his two round-the-world flights, recently in a solar-powered airplane, and before that non-stop in a balloon. By initiating the Solar Impulse project, his ambition has been to leverage a pioneering spirit for a useful contribution to the cause of renewable energies and clean technologies. With his dual identities as medical doctor and explorer, Bertrand has become an influential voice heard among the most distinguished institutions across the globe as a forward-thinking leader for progress and sustainability.
Dr. Bertrand Piccard will present his project Solar Impulse, and dedication to changing the world through greater recourse to clean technologies.
