In 1962, visual artist, graphic designer and scenographer Corneille Hannoset helped design the Musée du Cinéma alongside curator Jacques Ledoux and architect Constantin Brodzki. His graphic and spatial work was to forge the institution's identity in the Brussels public space until 2010, when the visual identity was overhauled. Through a series of montages of archive images, the graphic design studio La Villa Hermosa is examining the relationship between the Musée du Cinéma, its graphic and spatial identity and the aesthetic principles that underpinned its design, and graphic production in relation to the cultural, technical, visual and political context in which it was created.

On the occasion of the exhibition, which runs from 14.12 2023 to 29.02 2024, a reference work will be published bringing together eyewitness accounts and archive documents.
