From June 8 to July 8, 2018, a collection of drawings in tribute to Bilal Berreni – known as Zoo Project – was installed at the Hôp Hop Hop Café in Arsenal (Place Saint-Jacques, Besançon FR), HQ of the Bien Urbain 8 festival.
A screening of the documentary tale “C’est assez bien d’être fou”, directed by Antoine Page and Zoo Project was organized in partnership with les 2 Scenes, as well as a presentation of the books, made in tribute to Zoo Project at the Unlock Publishing Fair, organized at Hôp Hop Hop place.
The tribute offered by his family is a call to creativity, so that his work and experience can inspire others to live their own adventure.

Bilal Berreni has always drawn, everywhere, all the time. From the great murals of the twentieth arrondissement of Paris to the Tunisia of the Arab Spring via the Trans-Siberian Railway, his uncompromising and deeply political approach has never lost its poetic sweetness.
