Under the title “Discoveries, the mob and powdered wigs”, this festival takes as its theme a century full of contrasts, with an age of discovery and extravagance going arm in arm with an ugly and brutal reality. A century placed at the junction between the local and the global, between powdered wigs and street mobs. Among many other thing, the festival includes a series of lectures, concerts, an erotic salon and a family research café.
