When you immerse yourself in Dominique Goblet's rich visual worlds, you can feel the depths of life. The Cartoonmuseum Basel is presenting the first major retrospective exhibition of comic artist and visual artist Dominique Goblet, who was born in Brussels in 1967 and is one of the most important Franco-Belgian illustrators and innovators of comics today. Dominique Goblet's subtle and sophisticated graphic novels look deep into people's souls and their social situation and social environment. The artist became internationally renowned with her autobiographical story "So tun als ob heisst lügen" (2007), which was developed over twelve years and focuses on her relationship with her alcoholic father and mother.

The exhibition at the Cartoonmuseum Basel shows original drawings and paintings ranging from landscapes to portraits, complemented by ceramic works, and invites visitors to discover the broad graphic cosmos of the artist, who was awarded the Grand Prix Töpffer in 2020.
