An Exhibition of Belgian Comic Art

â€œL'employÃ© du Moi is a publishing house in Brussels, Belgium. It is made up of eight people who are all cartoonists. None of them are paid for the time they put into l'employÃ© du Moi. Since 2000, l'employÃ© du Moi has explored intimate stories and autobiographies, trying to focus more on good storytelling than just spectacular drawings. L'employÃ© du Moi isn't afraid of any genre and publishes whatever they like.
L'employÃ© du Moi is a French pun. It sounds like â€œthe employee of the monthâ€ but it means "the employee of Me." In this exhibition, I invite you to discover the Me behind l'employÃ© du Moi.â€
