In resonance with the show that is currently running, Alexia Foubert has developed a workshop that will focus on a contemporary version of the self-portrait via the avatar, often used in video games and on some of the social networks. Children participating in the workshop will describe their avatar to their partner, who will then have to draw it. Each one in a pair will draw the other according to what is said, writing a story whose characters will be the avatars developed during the workshop. The story will take shape as a paper fanzine that is to be printed up at the end of the workshop.

For three-year-olds and older. Reservations are required for groups: reservation@cacbretigny.com or +33 (0)1 60 85 20 78.

Alexia Foubert lives and works in Paris. She writes and questions on, supposing that on assumes a diverse range of forms.

She recently joined Zoé Philibert as one of the principal editors of the poetry review Remugle. With Léon Lenclos, she co-created the review Quatre-Quarts and with Samah Slim co-directs La Combine ( In 2016 she was the artist-in-residence at the CONA Foundation in Mumbai, where she set up the project Distractions, which she also curated.
