  • The world turned upside down is a journey into the imaginative world

    For thirty years, all over the world, carnivals have been making a major comeback

    Everywhere, rural masquerades and urban parades are being reborn and reinvented. The world turned upside down is a journey into the imaginative world of the carnival and a reflection on what it has to tell us about ourselves and contemporary societies. Along the way, the visitor discovers the masked rituals of European and the Mediterranean: urban parades, some of them linked to the liturgical calendar, old, new or revisited; carnivals exported from Europe to the former colonies, Creolised, Africanised, and returning today to revitalise European carnivals. A look is also taken at the masked rituals of the Muslim and Jewish worlds.

    A new look and a fresh perspective, taking into account both the rural and urban, historical and contemporary side of traditional masquerades.
